Sports Director

Deslea Wrathall has played internationally for New Zealand Softball, Basketball New Zealand (BBNZ) and New Zealand Touch Football. She counts winning the World Championships in Softball and World Championships in Touch Football as two of her greatest sporting achievements. She was also named in a World Touch Team.

Deslea has coached the New Zealand Tall Blacks (NZ U19 Boys), BBNZ Under 18 Boys, BBNZ Under 16 Girls and has been mentor coach for the BBNZ U17 Boys and Girls and the FIBA (Basketball International Federation) Oceania Under 19 Girls. Deslea has also been the New Zealand Maori Women’s Basketball Head Coach, Assistant Coach to the Wellington Saints and Head Strength and Conditioning Coach of the New Zealand Breakers.

In 2014 she received an international Olympic Basketball Coaching Scholarship, of which only seven were given around the world for Basketball. As part of the Scholarship, Deslea went to the University of North Carolina to work with two Hall of Fame coaches to gain an international coaching certificate. She also head coached at the prestigious Albert Schweitzer U18 tournament in Germany with the Junior Tall Blacks and was the first and only female Head Coach in the 50 years the tournament had run.

Sports Administrator

Frances Solia has competed in two Netball World Cups and two Commonwealth Games representing Samoa, captained the Central Pulse and played for the Waikato Magic. On the coaching and mentoring side, Frances has been assistant coach for the 2015 Pulse, the 2016 BEKO netball central team and the 2016 Wellington U17s team, who won its respective grade. She was also head coach of the 2016 Premier 1 club team and coach of our own QMC 2016 Junior A Netball team, who both won their respective grades. Outside of being a coach, Frances has also had experience mentoring young sportswomen in her previous role as Netball Development Officer for Netball Central, working with players to upskill their basic fundamental movement skills. Her coaching philosophy is about building a strong team culture. “Whether I am working with an elite team or a level of participation, my philosophy is to always build the right culture to create success – which can also be defined in many ways,” Frances says.
