GISBORNE’S Kiwi Campbell and Sieda (“CC”) Tureia have been appointed coaches for the New Zealand waka ama women’s team for the 2022 IVF World Sprint Championships in Windsor, England.

They will guide both the women’s elite and J19 (junior under-19) teams, Campbell as head coach and Tureia, assistant coach.

Campbell has been a head coach with the New Zealand elite team since their inception in 2016.

She said it was exciting to have a fellow club member in the coaching role. Both are members of Self Storage Gisborne Horouta Waka Hoe.

The pair have built a “really good relationship” on and off the water, having been waka ama teammates many times.

Tureia said it would be a big advantage to have that familiarity as coaching partners. The pair share a long history together in the sport — Campbell coached Tureia’s age-grade team for the 2006 World Cup,

“It’s key to have the right people at the helm of these campaigns,” Campbell said.

“We have a strong track record together and it’s definitely beneficial to have a good understanding of how we deliver and run our next campaign.”

With Covid-19 creating uncertainty over how they might run their team, they plan to conduct trials early next year.

They are working through how the trials might run if regions are in “traffic light” restrictions similar to Alert Level 3.

Waka Ama NZ has committed to a full elite campaign to provide a pathway for paddlers to be selected to represent Aotearoa, regardless of whether they travel to compete.

Campbell and Tureia were in the same roles for last year’s world championships scheduled for Hawaii but were unable to attend due to Covid-19.

The 2022 team would have big shoes to fill, with the New Zealand women’s team the reigning world champions in two of the three sprint disciplines, Campbell said.

“We know what level we need to reach. We have some really experienced individual top paddlers, but I’m also excited to see the up-and-coming talent coming through the ranks.”

Tureia, who has coached the junior elite development squad, said it was exciting to step into the assistant coaching role.

She was most looking forward to the wider scope of the elite women’s programme, which continued to grow, and working with Campbell.

She said that, after being a competitive paddler herself, her experience helped inform how she coached the next generation of paddlers.

“The way we teach is from years and years of perfecting these different skills.

“When you’re at a high level, it’s nice to give back to bring other people up to experience that as well.”

In this campaign, Tureia is especially looking forward to reconnecting with the Northern Hemisphere paddlers.

She said the facilities and training programmes to which they had access in that part of the world were exciting, and she was eager to learn how they incorporate them into training.

Tureia plans to keep studying towards her masters degree in educational leadership while maintaining her roles as a Horouta Waka Hoe coach and national women’s elite and J19 assistant coach.

She says being busy is just part of the lifestyle.
