Here is Mikayla's thoughts on the start of the netball season for her team.
This year netball has got off to a great
start. I am a year eight so I want to make the most of this year's
netball season before moving on to high school to play in harder teams.
My team's first game was really good; we beat Southwell 26 to 5. It was a
good game and we were very pleased. But our second game was not so
good, we lost to Maeroa 12 to 6. Then we lost to the Maeroa B team 46 -
nil but we didn't stop trying and we ended up playing a good game
anyway. Here are a few tips for netball.
Tip 1: Spread out; if you all go
to the same spot on the court it is harder to move around.
Tip 2: Learn
to be quick; it is an advantage if you are quick. It means you can surprise your partner and get away to catch the ball.
Tip 3: Be a good sport; you need to be a good sport. If
you lose don't be a bad sport, say "good game," and think about what you
could do next time to play a better game.
I love your attitude Mikayla. You show that you really want to win, but you also show a great attitude towards losing, knowing that there's always next week to get back on top. Great tips too (they are appropriate to many sports).
