Jodie House will lead Wodonga Raiders through another Ovens and Murray League season.
House is entering her fifth consecutive year at the helm after returning to the club to take on the A-grade coaching job back in 2018.
Raiders have also reappointed Lisa Bradshaw (B-grade), Haley O'Neil (C-grade) and House's daughter Shaylah (under-17s) as the club's netball coaches for next season.
After the disruptions to the competition over the last two years due to the pandemic, House said she was keen to give 2022 a shot.
"We have such a nice group of people and it's just a pleasure to be around the club," she said.
Raiders have possessed a young squad for several seasons, but some will now be looking to move on as they enter new life phases.
"We're in a position where we'll have a couple of our A-grade girls not returning next year," House said.
"It will be similar in B and C-grades with girls heading off to university, or they're now finished their university studies and are looking to move away for work.
"We'll certainly be open to new players coming and having a look."
While the A-grade side finished the home and away season in seventh spot on the ladder, the club's under-17s were crowned minor premiers after an undefeated season.

Shaylah also received recognition for her work with the young group after recently being crowned Coach of the Year in the annual Netball Victoria Community Awards.
Raiders senior grades will now gain three players from the junior side, including Eliza Cyc, Chelsea Wettern and Ovens and Murray League under-17s best and fairest winner Kytlee Willis.
House admitted the skill level of the young talented players coming through the ranks is a positive sign for the club.
"We are big believers in when players are underage and can still play in their age group to do it, because you're a long time playing senior netball," she said.
"It's about finding that balance to give those talented kids the opportunity to have a feel for senior netball.
"We try and give them senior court time throughout the year so that they get the best of both worlds."
Raiders are set to hold their club best and fairest on Friday night.
House is one of few O and M coaches who have retained their positions from this season, with Emily Browne (North Albury), Linda Robinson (Lavington), Bianca Mann (Wodonga), Skye Hillier (Albury), Joanne Cresswell (Wangaratta Rovers), Chaye Crimmins and Hannah Grady (Wangaratta Magpies) all named as new leaders for their clubs.
