CASE STUDY – Analie Longo

LockerRoom story

Juggling football and a career has been an ongoing challenge for Football Ferns centurion Analie Longo as she looks to play in her sixth FIFA World Cup. 

But the opportunity to add another challenge, participation in HPSNZ’s Te Hāpaitanga coaching initiative, to her juggling act was too hard for her to resist. 

Analie has always had a passion for coaching and jumped at the chance to apply for Te Hāpaitanga at the last intake. 

Analie talked with LockerRoom’s sports writer, Merryn Anderson, about her playing challenges ahead of the FIFA World Cup and about her experience on the Te Hāpaitanga programme to date.
