I have been attending Point England for three years now, since I have been here I have had more experience in everything but my most favourite thing I have been involved in is Netball. I've been in many sports at my old schools but I wasn't keen on joining Netball. Last year (2012) I took the opportunity to trial for the Netball team. A few days after our trial the coaches had decided, and I had made the team. This year and last year.

My coach this year is Miss Muliaumasealii. We train Thursdays after school and 1 hour or more before a game. Sometimes I get nervous before a game but when I'm focused on the court and the ball I try my hardest.

I haven't been playing for very long but I have been taught a few tips from Mrs Nua and Mrs Muliaumasealii. Tip 1. When you're throwing a ball make sure you're throwing it straight to the chest. Also never be afraid to take a risk when you're stuck and don't know what to do just do what you think is right. A very important thing is to PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE.

You don’t need to be a famous champion to play this sport all you need is a ball and a few friends and you can have a game. You would be crazy to not give this game a go. You can see below a diagram of all positions.

Thank you to Cael for reading and editing my work. You're the best.

  1. Hey Andrea, great to see your feelings coming across in your work, thats a verry important skill as a writer.

    It's realy great to see teamwork with Cael helping to edit your work, sometimes a fresh pair of eyes is all you need, maybe you could add a link to Cael's blog so people could visit her.

    Keep writing and have fun, Mr. Hutchings
