After eight weeks of special coaching with Thunderbirds players, Erin Bell plus Leigh Waddington (a former Trinity student), Kate Shimmin and Sam Poolman, Trinity College Academy netballers are hoping this will assist them with an International title.
Erin Bell ran workshops for two age groups 14-17 years and 11-13 years that incorporated general skills, footwork, mid-court play, goaling, defensive skills and full team strategies.
Students will now tackle the upcoming season with a boost in their confidence with the knowledge that they have learned from the best in the business.
All players were selected at trials at the start of 2015 and have incorporated these sessions with other Academy activities such as STARplex strength, conditioning and fitness classes, nutrition and diet classes, umpiring and coaching courses and netball carnivals.
The Open A and 8/9A Trinity teams will also represent the college on the Gold Coast in July as part of the World Sports Carnival, with over 60 teams from across the globe competing.
