Has your coach ever tried to push you out of your comfort zone at netball? Pre-season training is a great opportunity to practice new positions and styles of play. Norma Plummer advocates going outside of your comfort zone to develop new game skills for an advantage over your opposition. Change is hard but not impossible. Persist and you will be rewarded. Don’t change too much at once. Instead, review your game and identify potential areas for improvement.

Set goals and work with your coach, mentors and parents to achieve them. This will be a huge benefit to your career. Good luck to a successful season!
