Krissie Steen Appointed as Senior Women's Coach
Krissie Steen (pictured above left) has been appointed as the inaugural senior coach of South Adelaide's senior women's team in the expanded SANFL Statewide Super Women's League.
Steen has an impressive resume of coaching experience working with both elite senior and junior programs in both South Australia and New South Wales, including time spent with the Western Bulldogs and GWS Giants women's teams.
Most recently, Steen guided Adelaide University Football Club's women's team to an undefeated South Australian Women's Football League (SAWFL) Division 1 premiership campaign.
Speaking on the appointment, South Adelaide Chief Executive Officer Neill Sharpe said, "Krissie has a genuine passion for football and a coaching resume that backs it up.
"That became very clear during the interview process and we were all left very excited that she would be the very first coach of the South Adelaide Football Club Women's football team.
"Krissie's enthusiasm for football and history of successfully moulding many football programs left us with no doubts that she is the right candidate to start our senior women's program."
Next year, South Adelaide will be fielding an inaugural senior women's team in the expanded SANFL Statewide Super Women's League, with the season set to kick off in February 2018.
Over the past three seasons the Panthers have welcomed two junior female teams to their Talent Pathway Programs, with the Club's Under-17s (formerly Under-16s) playing in three consecutive Grand Finals and claiming premierships in 2016 and 2017.
