Netball master class from Surrey Storm player
Monday, 18 September 2017
Seevic College Netball Academy started their training this season with a master class from former student Mikki Austin.
The students were treated to a two hour coaching session which included tips on how to have a "netball brain" and how to be an intelligent player.
Since Mikki left Seevic she has been playing for Superleague team Surrey Storm.
Georgia Sasse, 17, who is studying BTEC Level 3 Sports & Exercise Science and plays in the Netball Academy, said: “Mikki taught us to push our attack high and wide when defending. This is something that we can use to improve our game as a team.
“The training session was filled with quality drills and was high intensity throughout.”
The session focused on attacking movement and how to get free from an opponent. Mikki spoke about driving into space and how to change your speed and body angle to make it easier for yourself.
Maddy Dyer, who is studying A-Level Law, Psychology and IT, is also part of the Netball Academy. She added: “Overall, by talking to Mikki, it has really improved our skills individually and as a team.
“Her netball background has inspired us to achieve our goals and we are all really grateful that we had the chance to have a training session with her.”
The girls also had the chance to question Mikki on the challenges they may come across when playing netball as well as her own game style.
