Volleyball New Zealand announces new Game Development Manager

Johann Timmer has taken up the role as Game Development Manager for Volleyball New Zealand starting immediately. Johann is well known as a successful player in beach and indoor, but it is his more recent breadth of coaching that has impressed the appointments panel. “Johann has coached at a range of levels and is equally strong in beach and indoor and this is important for us”, says Volleyball New Zealand Chief Executive, Toni-Maree Carnie. “He will hit the floor running, accompanying the junior teams to Australia in a few weeks and learning from the Australian coaches who are keen to share and partner with New Zealand”. NZRU’s Game Development Manager Mike Chu provided the independent expert on the panel and felt that Johann had a lot to offer the sport as a coach, with a lot of insights and a clear understanding of the need to build relationships in order to influence change.
