The NSW 21/U Team are deep into their 2015 21/U National Netball Championships preparations, with the tournament getting underway on the Sunshine Coast in just over three weeks’ time.
NetballNSWTV caught up with Head Coach Megan Simpson who said her charges are focussed and dedicated to the impending task.
“They’ve been going really well – we’ve certainly been putting in some hard yards,” Simpson said.
“The girls have really been pushing their limits at training and we’re really looking forward to the next couple of weeks and getting some match play under our belts, just to fine-tune some of the things we’ve been working on.
“[Match play] is the most exciting part – we’ve got such a versatile team and we’ve certainly got a team of girls that are really united, so I’m really looking forward to seeing what those combinations transpose to on the court,” Simpson concluded.
The 2015 21/U National Netball Championships will be contested from Tuesday 10 to Sunday 15 March at Caloundra Indoor Stadium, Queensland.
