Kyneton Football Netball Club has locked in its senior coaches ahead of the 2022 Central Victoria Football League Women's season.
Returning to the top job is Phil Hawkes who will be joined by former senior coach Kevin Hall who is taking on the role of assistant.
Hall came back to the senior squad halfway through the 2021 season.
Hawkes and Hall have since built a strong relationship and have big plans for the team moving forward.
"We're looking to build in all areas of the club - not just player stocks," Hawkes said.
"What goes on behind the scenes and off the field at training and on match day are just as crucial.
"With the addition of more line and assistant coaching roles it's going to help the team move up to the next level."
In Hawkes' first year as Tigers head coach the team finished the COVID-19 interrupted season in fifth position on the ladder with a 4-8 record.
Now that the upcoming 2022 season looks to be set for a closer-to-regular operation than the previous two years and with the club's coaching roles locked in - Hawkes is ready for the team to develop.
"What we have now is what we will put in place for the next 12 months to two years so that we can continue to grow.
The team's 2021 best and fairest player Jordan Savoia is also set to return - in addition to several existing squad members.
There have been pre-season sessions in recent weeks which have also been an opportunity for new potential recruits to have a run with the Tigers.
"There's a chance we will secure some more players from our recent come and try sessions as they've been provided with an insight into what we're about," Hawkes said.
"It's also been an opportunity to have some fun before the Christmas break and to simply touch base with all of the players."
The biggest change on the horizon for the 2022 CVFLW competition is the addition of a new team to the league.
The 162-year-old Castlemaine Magpies are entering a senior women's side which now brings the total number of squads to nine.
Golden Square premiership player Tiahna Cochrane has been named as head coach and Georgia Banks will be in charge of women's football operation
