Shannon Winzer

Appointed Australia’s head coach in January 2016, Canadian born Shannon Winzer moved to Australia over ten years ago. A graduate at British Columbia University, Winzer played in Europe before settling in Australia and captained University Blues to four gold medal playoffs. The transition from playing to coaching was seamless. Winzer head coached the U23’s Victoria team to successive gold medals in 2012 and 2013.

In 2013 Winzer was appointed head coach of her beloved University Blues at the time when the team was struggling at the bottom of the table in the Australian Volleyball League. With her coaching philosophy of "strong culture and accountability” she went about building a team that came from last the previous year to winning the championship against a very strong Western Australia Pearls team in the gold medal match. To prove it was not a fluke, Winzer’s University Blues won the next two championships making it a “threepeat”, being undefeated in 2015.
