Netball Stars Visit

There is always plenty of action and plenty to learn at Activ8’s Sport for Fun in Knox on a Monday afternoon.  At last week’s session we were very excited to welcome special guests Karyn Bailey and Emma Ryde from the Melbourne Vixens netball team, who came along to give us a few tips on netball.

The first thing we all noticed was how tall they were! Karyn taught us how to throw and catch like netballers (there are lots of us who throw like basket ballers!) and then we spent some time in smaller groups working on shooting and footwork. As both players are shooters we were in expert hands! We then played a game at the end where we tried not only to score goals, but to practice pivoting for bonus points.

Karyn and Emma were generous with their time, laughter and smiles, and we all enjoyed spending time with them and working on improving our skills.

Sport for Fun is a great space to try and improve skills, have fun and try out different sports in a non competitive, non intimidating environment. Sessions run at Insportz Knox on a Monday from  4.45pm – 6pm and in Yarra Junction on a Wednesday 4.30pm – 6pm. For more info contact Karina or Fiona on 97585522 or activ8@ioe.org.au.
