NetballSmart SmartPlayer resource released

SmartPlayer resource - simple strategies, great ideas to support your Netball Journey

The NetballSmart philosophy is based on six key principles. NetballSmart encourages players to prepare their bodies so they can play better, reduce the chance of serious injury and fully enjoy Netball through school and the years beyond.

If you ask any Silver Fern or professional player they will most likely describe their Secondary School Netball as some of their favourite sporting memories, having fun, being competitive and making lifelong friendships.

Navigating teen sports can be confusing and difficult and at times it is challenging to make the right decisions for you and your sport.

The aim of the SmartPlayer resource is to support aspiring players of any ability throughout secondary school to:

• Get fit, strong and stay healthy
• Reduce the risk of serious injury
• Grow and extend their Netball performance
• Set goals and challenge themselves to achieve them
• Enjoy Netball to its fullest for a lifetime
• Provide practical off court tips to get the most out of trainings and prepare for games.

Comment Guidelines: The SportsTG Network is made up of players, families and passionate sports followers like you who have a strong opinion about sport. That's great - we want you to have your say and share your thoughts with the world. However, we have a few rules that you must follow to keep it fun for all. Please don't be rude, abusive, swear or vilify others. Apart from some pretty serious sport sanctions, we also can ban you and report you if things get out of hand. So play fair and have fun, and thanks for your contribution.
