Welcome to Dinah Gordon Hockey Development Officer for the LGSHA

05/12/2016 08:33 PM |

Dinah Gordon has recently been appointed by the LGSHA as the Hockey Development Officer.
Dinah grew up near Esperance on a large farm and began playing hockey in primary school. During her high school years, Dinah was encouraged to take on coaching and umpiring and that is where her passion for all things hockey really grew.

Dinah has spent the last 15 years in rural Victoria, where she continued to play, coach and umpire hockey at all levels. The last two years in particular, she was the head coach for the Hin2H program for the Glenelg Hockey Association, overseeing the introduction to hockey for over 60 young participants each year.

Dinah, her husband and three children moved to Albany in early 2016 and have fallen in love with the beautiful environment along with the friendly local community. Dinah played hockey this year with Spencer Park 1 in the local Womens B Division.

She is looking forward to being able to engage and encourage local children to participate in hockey now and in the future.
