Canterbury Tactix head coach Helen Mahon-Stroud and her assistant Julie Seymour have retained their jobs for the 2011 transtasman netball league but they are to get specialist help.

Tactix chairman Kevin Eder said the franchise was looking to appoint a specialist shooting assistant and a specialist defence assistant to help Mahon-Stroud and former Silver Fern Seymour.

The Tactix finished 10th and last in this year's ANZ Championship after coming sixth in the inaugural league last year.
