We are glad to announce that Alex Houser will be leading the All Blues WPL team as the head coach for the fall 2014 season, along with Jake Nelson as assistant coach. Both coaches have an extensive relationship with rugby, with both starting to play during their high school years. Alex, who comes in with five years of coaching experience, served as head coach of the SFGG Pacific Rugby Premier side that won their inaugural championship. Jake, a Premier League prop for SFGG, is returning to the All Blues family after serving as head coach for the Summer 7s team, which won a third place victory in the most recent National 7s Championships in Seattle, WA.
Both Alex and Jake hope to “maintain the legacy” of the All Blues, which has an established history of winning National Championships at the club level, and help players “compete at the highest level.” In addition, Alex hopes to develop individual players so that they can “get their own identity” on the pitch and “play their own brand of rugby.”
Returning veterans Katie Chou and Sarah Davis will lead the team as captains. With solid leadership and spirit, the All Blues look forward to a great season ahead!
