Where do you get your coaching inspiration from?
My experience as a player and the amazing coaches I have worked with have really inspired me to share my knowledge and develop the next generation of athletes. I started my coaching journey helping my mum out in her sessions and I learnt so much, it really helped guide me in the right direction to progress my coaching ability.
Why do you love netball?
I love netball because it has taught me so many valuable life lessons and allowed me to make the most amazing friends. It’s a fun yet challenging sport that has helped boost my confidence in all aspects of my life. As well as keeping me fit and healthy it helps to relieve stress and gives me a much-needed break from normal life.
How are you involved in netball outside of Elite Netball Academy?
Currently, I play for Leeds Rhinos U21’s and am a training associate for the Super league Team. I’ve previously played for Loughborough Lightning U21’s, been on the Yorkshire Pathway and played for Leeds Athletic. Experience at England Academy trials and camps means I have collected hints and tips from every angle of netball.
What are your official coaching qualifications?
I hold a Level 2 Coaching Qualification and outside of netball I’m studying International Business at Leeds Beckett University.
