This year's coaches are two well-known figures in our community.
The first is Mehrdad Mehranpour, who has been appointed to coach our Men's Adelaide Storm team. He previously coached last year's Adelaide Storm Men's Team, and is currently our U19's Junior Boys State Team, as well as the Norwood Bears Senior Men's Team coach. With over 10 years’ experience as a ‘Scoutman’ analyst and part of the training team in the Iranian National team as well as Head Coach experience for university teams at AVC, he is well positioned to add a different perspective on the Men’s program that has already shown good success.
The next coach is Lauren Soderberg, who has been appointed to coach our Women's team. Lauren has been coaching at the highest level for years now including being a beach coach at the 2016 Summer Olympics and receiving accolades throughout her career including but not limited to:
- 2019 Coach of the Half Century VQ
- 2016 International Coach of the Year VA
- 2013 Outstanding Coach of the Year PGC
