I have being playing netball since Year 5. My PE teacher played netball herself which helped us form a really good team who trained frequently together. This allowed me to progress playing netball into secondary school. It was here where my passion for the sport developed. I became captain of the school team and began playing at a county level.
Have you been inspired by other coaches?
Absolutely! After school I joined Greencroft netball club who are an England Netball Accredited Bronze CAPS club and continued my education at Gateshead Sports College. Both have really great coaches and helped me develop further as a player and gave me my first experience as a coach.
This inspired me to start my coaching degree and to play for Team Northumbria. Team Northumbria has developed my skills and knowledge of netball dramatically as the coaches are amazing!
Having good coaches has made me want to become a good coach. I have learned great skills and knowledge that I have been able to apply in my sessions.
