What does it take
to become a Currie Chieftain?

We at Currie Chieftains work with a philosophy which involves two main strands.
The first is development. As a coach I love working with good people who want to get better. The most rewarding part is seeing talented players reaching their potential and becoming excellent young men and women.
The second is enjoyment and these two strands go hand in hand. Players generally want to get better and if they can see this improvement they enjoy themselves more.Whilst there is some enjoyment in having fun, for me, real enjoyment comes

from working hard to overcome challenges and achieve things that you once thought were once out of reach. This is a very exciting time to be involved with Currie Chieftains as we continue to grow and develop. Everyone involved has a real desire to continue to improve, and with this attitude we will go from strength to strength.

Join our clan…
