HA High Performance Director Toni Cumpston said: “Jason’s experience will add considerably to our off-field team and will enable us to continue to address critical performance areas to ensure we are the best prepared teams leading in to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

“I look forward to welcoming Jason to the team when he commences with our High Performance Unit in Perth.”

Duff will primarily provide performance analysis support to the Kookaburras program but has also been engaged to provide Specialist drag flicking coaching across both programs. 

He will also manage PCD and PCA databases and provide specialist advice on both these critical tactical components of our game to the Kookaburra and Hockeyroos programs.
