Coaches & Contacts for 2018

Chris Taylor - Premier 1's
Chris is a highly decorated individual with a wealth of hockey experience and knowledge. Chris has been associated with VP coming up to 40 years in roles varying from a player, parent and coach. Chris has coached junior teams at VP for ten years, from Minkey through to J9/10’s before making the transition to coaching seniors as Assistant Coach to our MTL Men’s Team. 

Fortunately for VP, Chris agreed to take on the Head Coach role of our MTL Women’s Team from 2016, making the 2018 season his third consecutive season leading the club from the front. Last year Chris coached the women to the Grand Final where they were unlucky to go down in a hard fought battle against WASPS. This achievement was a great effort from all involved and the clubs best result for the Women since entering the Premier 1 competition. No doubt Chris will be hoping to take the women one better this year and adding some silverware to the cabinetry. 

Chris has not only had success as a coach, but had a highly successful playing career. He represented VP at the highest level for many years and was an integral part of the inaugural men’s premiership winning team in 1996.  

Chris played representative hockey for WA from an early age - playing U14s, U15s, U17s, four years in U21s and two years with WA at Senior level. His playing achievements don’t stop there - not only did Chris represent WA for all those years he did so with impact and influence. He was rewarded for his strong performances, earning himself a Junior World Cup berth, two years in the AIS program and being a member of the 1988 Seoul Olympic Squad.

Monique Criddle - Premier 2's
Monique started with VP ten years ago as a junior player, working her way up through seniors and being an integral part of the senior women’s side for many years. She has coached junior teams at VP with great success for many years, taking numerous teams to Grand Final victories. In 2017 Monique took a step back from playing due to injuries and was Co-Coach of our Premier 2 Women’s side. 

Since 2014 Monique has been in coaching roles with WA state teams, ranging from U13s to U18s. In 2017 Monique was appointed Head Coach for NT’s U18 Women and did a great job, with NT winning round games which is a rare occurrence. As a result of her achievements, Monique was named HEAT and TAP Academy Coach for 2017 and 2018 with the Hockey WA Development Programs.

TBC - Provisional 2 (4’s)
