Women’s Sport Week – A Profile on Karen MacKellar

Day 7 – Sunday October 9th

The final day of our Women’s Sport Week will feature our SSS Volunteer of the Year, netball coach and player Karen MacKeller!

Karen first got involved with Student Sport when she was elected Sports President at Strathclyde following her studies.  The following year the Netball Chair became available and she took over having been involved in running the Netball Champs the previous year.

Karen enjoys providing opportunities for others in my sport, and the sense of giving something back. She’s often experienced situations where if no volunteers come forward something won’t happen which would hugely impact netball and those playing.  Karen also sits on the Competition Advisory Group for Netball Scotland and help out with Netball Scotland events.  Karen is also the current Scottish Student Netball Chair and the reigning SSS Volunteer of the Year.  Karen was also awarded the SSS Volunteer of the month in February 2016 for her excellent work delivering the Netball Championships.
