The Southside Flyers are looking for a new Head Coach

Dual Flyers Championship Coach, Cheryl Chambers will not be part of the Southside Flyers in the next WNBL season.

“I won’t be returning to the Southside Flyers as Head Coach next season. This decision is mainly due to the hectic Opals schedule leading into the Olympics in July and having coached in the WNBL for more than ten straight seasons,” Cheryl said when making the announcement this afternoon.

“I do want to take the opportunity to sincerely thank Gerry and Val Ryan for all their help and support, for myself, my family, the players, and women’s sport in general.

“A big thank you to the Flyers’ staff, volunteers, and all the fans over the journey,” Cheryl added.

Owner of the Flyers, Gerry Ryan said the club appreciates this decision and Cheryl’s commitment to the Opals in this Olympic year.

“On behalf of everyone at the Flyers we say thank you Cheryl Chambers, our inaugural coach. Cheryl has guided the players to achieve success, four Grand Finals in five seasons, including two Championships says it all,” Gerry said.

The Flyers will now commence the task to find the best candidate for the Head Coach position for the 2024/25 WNBL season.
