North Melbourne has appointed Kevin White as Head of Performance for season 2022 and beyond.

White joins the club from Collingwood, where he was responsible for leading its high performance program for the past three years.

Hailing from Ireland, he initially joined the Pies’ sports science department in 2011, following an eight month international sports science scholarship with the club.

North GM football, Brady Rawlings, said White will be a valuable addition at Arden St.

“Kevin has been involved at Collingwood over a ten year period, which led to managing the performance team over the last three seasons. Over this period he has become a leader within the AFL industry,” Rawlings said.

“In that time he lead an overhaul of the Magpies’ fitness regime and we’re excited to add his expertise, experience and knowledge to our football program.

“We are excited with the group of young talent we have and we are at a crucial point to set us up for future success. We believe Kevin can help lead our on-field success.”
