Speed and creativity in the circle, calm under pressure Being named in the 2011 Australian Diamonds and winning World Champs! Running around the grass courts at Miranda with my hands up in the air being a head taller than all the other kids After I am sure I have done all the physical, technical and tactical training I can, I then watch video footage of past games of myself and my opposition and visualise success. Always keep your dream alive by taking every opportunity that comes your way and most importantly enjoy it. I remember tripping over my own feet while attempting to get an intercept… probably explains why I play attack! Menai Hawks when I was 8yrs, it was a yellow skirt and a matching yellow polo shirt. Not the most attractive uniform but you could definitely find us in a crowd! They are all in a big bag (or bags!) in every wardrobe of the house. Coming from NSW we always had a rivalry with VIC through underage Nationals and that has stuck with me into ANZ Championship. It always feels good to beat the Vixens as they have always been such a competitive team. Braids. I loved them when I was younger and still love them now. Only trouble is I can’t do it myself! Grand Final Aus v NZ World Champs 2011. AMAZING. I lost my voice for the next week after that game. The athleticism of the players has increased and with this the speed and physicality of the game has also increased. I don’t have a specific story, but what I have learnt from my netball career is to keep believing in yourself and your ability, don’t let others get you down. If you work hard enough and are willing to take risks anything is possible – if you believe it is. Player for Adelaide Thunderbirds. I enjoy coaching so do netball clinics every now and then.
