The Central Coast Academy of Sport is delighted to announce the appointment of Andrew McNee as the organisations Events & Athlete Services Manager, a position well suited to his skills, enthusiasm and abilities. McNee replaces the highly valued Emily Burgess-Moore who is on a nine-month maternity leave ‘break’.
McNee is a qualified teacher and he has many years of experience in sport, he is a past dual winter Olympian where he competed in Nagano (1998 – Japan) and Salt Lake City (2002 – USA). In 1998 McNee was a member of the men’s relay team where the team finished a very creditable 8th, and 2002 competed in the 5,000 meters and again in the men’s relay where they finished 6th.
Ian Robilliard the CCAS Managing Director said of his appointment; “I first met Andrew many years ago when he established a short track speed skating program for the Central Coast Academy of Sport. What struck me was Andrew’s enthusiasm for sport, and in helping up and coming athletes in a fairly unique discipline. Andrew had great success in that program and a number of athletes gained selection to the National team. The program was a first of it’s kind and Andrew provided not just great leadership to the program but the support he provided the athletes was outstanding. It made sense to me and the Board of Directors that Andrew would be a good fit to cover Emily who is now on maternity leave. I look forward to the skills Andrew will bring to the organisation.”
Andrew McNee said of his appointment to the CCAS; “I’m really pleased to be working back in sport, the CCAS has a great name in our region and I hope to be able to add to our reputation and build on the work Emily has done in the events space. I’m looking forward to the challenges ahead and in being able to help athletes who are looking to improve their own performance.”
