Amy “Sav” Ryan is a true inspiration within the QUT Hockey Club community. Amy Originally joined the club in 2010 and since then has shown her commitment to the club, its culture, as well as to the wider sporting community. She has shown this through her light hearted but tenacious personality and her resilience to ensure that the club continues to strive forward.

Amy has held a management position for the past 5 years, with the past two years holding the role of President. Amy alongside her managerial roles has offered her services in the role of Men’s head coach, for the past 3 years, no easy task where she supports and encourages the other men’s coaches as well as coaches the top men’s team. She also offered her services as a “standard” coach for the two years prior to stepping into the head coach role.

Amy does not only support the growth of the QUT Hockey Club, but inspires the entire hockey community to grow through her coaching (Queensland U13 girls) and managerial roles in the Brisbane Women’s Hockey Association. Furthermore, she even supports the wider QUT sporting community with her dedication to QUT’s Sport and constantly offering to volunteer her time and services. For her services she received the Jodi Martin Service to Sport Award in 2012, and the Australian University Sport Service Award 2014. Throughout her time, she has volunteered as an umpire, as a stall holder, as an umpiring coordinator, and continuously offers her services as a women’s committee member. Amy Ryan is a dedicated person and without her, the QUT Hockey Club would not be what it is today, and would not have the enormous potential to grow that is does now.

  • Malcolm says,

    "Sav in a short time at the helm of the top Qut team turned around their fortunes dramatically. She has since built on this improvement with gains in consistency and culture. They are a great team to play within, and a very difficult team to play against. From both perspectives you can see her influence. This is no accident, she equally applies knowledge from all aspects of the sport. Fitness, tactics, culture, talent development, nothing is overlooked. Add to all of this her involvement with the club and how could you not vote for her."
