Norths Devils Ironforge Security U17 Women’s Team Announced: Kristian Freed To Take the Helm as Head Coach

The Norths Devils Rugby League Football Club have made an exciting announcement, introducing Kristian Freed as the Head Coach of the Ironforge Security U17 Women’s Team. The club is thrilled to have him on board, as he brings with him a wealth of experience from his career.

His teaching background at Mount Maria College underscores his dedication to nurturing talent on and off the field, which is critical for players at this level. Freed’s ability to connect with his players and help them develop as athletes and valuable members of our community will undoubtedly be a major asset to the Norths Devils Rugby League Football Club.

Freed is no stranger to the sport, having played for the USA at the 2017 World Cup and has also served as the Met North Coach for Under-16 and Under-18 teams in 2023. His experience has allowed him to develop a keen understanding of the nuances of coaching young athletes.

As we look forward to the inaugural U17 female development arm of the Queensland Cup competition, we couldn’t be more thrilled to have Kristian at the helm, guiding our young athletes.

The club would like to thank the parents and guardians of these young athletes. Your unwavering support and encouragement provide a solid foundation for the players’ potential success. We understand the sacrifices you have made and the dedication you have shown in nurturing the aspirations of your young rugby league stars.

Only 34 have been selected to proceed into the preseason.

The competition was fierce, and we commend each player for their dedication and effort during the trials.

As the season unfolds, these young women will have the opportunity to hone their skills under the expert guidance of our development program as we hope to impart the values and principles that define the Norths Devils.
