Rachel Noble is our Touch Football and Girls Rugby League coach. Rachel has been playing Touch Football since the age of 10, making her first representative debut in year seven for her district and then making the U12 Met West team. At that carnival she was selected for the U12 Queensland team as a shadow. From here, her playing career took off making many more district, regional and state teams throughout secondary school. At 16 years old, she made the U18 Women’s Australian team to play at the Youth World Cup in New Zealand. The team were successful in winning The World Cup at this event.
Rachel has also played in the top Women’s A grade competition in Brisbane for Griffith Sharks/Southern Storm since she was 15 years old. Over the 12 years of playing at this level there were many premierships and players awards. She was also a dedicated Brisbane City Cobras player racking up over 10 years at the National Touch League competition and also winning a Player of the Final award in 2002. Rachel was then selected in the Women’s and Mixed National Training Squads, playing in numerous teams and another Youth World Cup for the U20 Women’s team in 2005.
Rachel started her coaching role, after many years of top level playing experience, when she completed her teaching degree and started working at Stretton in 2009 as the Gowan Physical Education teacher. Rachel took on the role of Touch Football coach for Interschool sports, Gala Day teams and Queensland All Schools teams. She has also coached the Girls U12 Sunnybank District team from 2010-2013 where she took out 3 wins and a runners-up over the 4 years.
After many years of playing touch, this year she was recruited to play Oz Tag at the Queensland Senior State Cup for Moorooka Roar. She will also travel away at the end of the year to play at the National Oz Tag competition at Coffs Harbour for Metro South Magic. She still loves to play the game of touch and looks forward to many more years of playing and coaching.
