Ash Wilson is the Head Coach of the Newcastle Jets A-League Women’s team. Ash also works in the Jets Academy program and in addition is a full-time teacher at Hunter Sports High.
Ash played her early football in Lismore on the far north coast of New South Wales. Her dad was integral in helping Ash into the game, being her role model as well as helping her to fall in love with the game.
She began coaching early in her career, working first in the Macquarie Academy while she was playing and then continuing as she moved to Adamstown Rosebuds after moving to Newcastle to play.
This is another wonderful conversation with a coach who has experience beyond her years working with players at school, community and elite level.
Ash is a teacher at heart and wants to teach/coach her players to improve. She is also a strong advocate of ‘lifetime learning’ and is always looking to continue her own football education.
Ash speaks to Gary Cole about the importance of resilience for players and coaches, and how she uses her roles as a secondary teacher and coach to teach young people how to become more resilient.
