Chris Loth with his World-Cup Winning Men’s Team

Chris Loth is joining Redlands Touch in the new role of Head Coach. Chris brings to Redlands significant experience both as a professional player and coach. Best of all though, Chris has a passion to help our Redlands kids be the best they can be.

Chris’s credentials are nothing short of impressive and include being a former Australian Player and current Australian Coach, achieving four World Cup titles. Chris is personally known to many of our players given his role as current Metropolitan East Coach.

It is a testament to our Club that a professional of Chris’s calibre has agreed to join. To add this passion and skill-set to our existing coaching team is a definite coup!  Redlands is lucky enough to have a number of skilled and dedicated coaches. These coaches took us to overall 4th place in Qld at the 2019 Junior State Cup. The additional leadership and mentoring from a current elite coach will be a great boost for our wonderful coaches and ultimately to the kids playing under them. In 2020, Redlands Touch just keeps getting better!
