Welcome to Harmit Singh
new Head of Coaching
We’re thrilled to announce that Harmit Singh has been appointed as Head of Coaching at the Ashy Redbacks. Harmit has joined us to help steer the development, training and mentoring of our coaches and equip them with modern coaching methods and frameworks to ensure we can get the best out of every player that takes to the field. Harmit will play a key role in our Footy Department and will help to set a blueprint of how we coach across the club from Under 8 to Colts and Youth Girls.
Harmit is a Level 3 AFL High-Performance Coach. In May this year, he joined Essendon FC as Academies Manager and prior, he held a number of roles at Collingwood FC from 2008 - 2017, with his most recent position as AFLW Backline Coach.
Harmit has held senior coaching appointments at Vermont FC, Gippsland FL, Northern NL, Xavier College, in addition to Assistant Coach and Playing Coach at multiple metropolitan and regional clubs. He also had key leadership playing and coaching roles during his years at Wesley College, as well as at Oakleigh Chargers and Ashburton Colts. Yes, that's right. Harmit is a former 100+ game player and Ashy is very close to his heart. We're now lucky to have him come back home.
