2017 Netball Tryouts

2017 netball team selection dates for all grades will be Tues 15th, Thurs 17th,Tues 22nd and Thurs 24th November at the Barr reserve Netball courts. Starting times will posted shortly so stay tuned to this page :)
Here is a little something to check out in relation to selections:


HOW TO GET THE BEST OUT OF SELECTIONS 
It’s that time of year again, when our nail biting (not that we are allowed to have any) goes to a whole new level - netball selections! This is what Sarah Wall (a past Aussie player) has said:
I attended a netball selection day last week that brought back so many memories from my junior netball going through the nerves and anticipation of selections.

I was chatting to Kim Green on the phone after the trails about what she did on selection day.

She said she would show up to the courts like she means business! "I would have my hair up and off my face. We all call it - high performance hair haha. It is also important that you don’t be too hard on yourself. If you are feeling like you are becoming anxious, breathe and smile - this always makes you feel more relaxed"

Here are my quick tips to help up and coming netballers put their best foot forward on selection day.

TIP 1: Of course we all hit the hay nice and early the night before selections and ensure our bodies are fuelled - Preparation is key!

TIP 2: Make sure we arrive at the courts early, properly attired in the correct kit. If selectors say a certain attire is required, we must wear what they say. If they say “no bright clothes” or “no Rep T-shirts”, we can’t wear it. In saying this, I always wore my lucky pink ribbon and if they didn’t let me wear it in my hair, I would tuck it into my shorts :)

TIP 3: Show confidence. Check ourselves in, it’s our future so own it!
It’s not a great idea to let someone else do it for us.

TIP 4: Speak for yourself.
Have a question? Simply ask - You’ve got this!

TIP 5: Put down the positions we think we will be the best at, considering the level we are trialling for. Don’t just put your favourite position down.
For example I loved GD, but I realised my opportunity at the next level was to play mid court. So that’s where I trialled.

TIP 6: If a selector asks us to play a position that is out of our comfort zone, jump at the chance.
They are looking at us there for a reason so never take this opportunity to step up for granted.

TIP 7: Follow directions of the selector/ coaches.

TIP 8: Get in the zone, whatever that means for you.
An average quarter at selections is 5 - 7mins. Focus on the now, commit to every drive and let’s back ourselves on our shots. We don’t need to be looking over at mum, dad or even the selectors.
Focus on the task at hand, eyes on the ball and be in the moment.

TIP 9: Have fun!
Smile, encourage your teammates, even if we don’t know their names, the selectors are always looking for leadership. I find when I’m myself, I relax and play my own game.

TIP 10: Selectors are looking for players with great attitudes.
Let’s show them how much we want it by chasing every loose ball and if we throw a bad pass, move on quickly. It's all in the body language so charge on and chin up.

Okay so let’s say our name is not called out - Never ever give up!

Try another association or team and/or come back next year with more experience.
I missed out on my first Victorian state team as they said I was too slow and as hard as that was to hear, the selectors were right. So I went back and worked on my footwork and speed until it became an absolute strength of my game.

Too many people give up because a little hiccup along the way.
Never let our dreams go because 1, 2, 3 or 4 people didn’t believe in us.
My biggest tip is to ask for feedback. 
It’s not a good look to get a parent or guardian to ask, let’s take some ownership.

And if we DO get in - CONGRATS!!!
Grab onto the opportunity with 2 hands and never be complacent.

Good luck to all netballers during this time 

Look forward to seeing lots of you there
