It is a beautiful hot summer day to play a game of Netball. The only problem being is that, I don’t like playing Netball. Well once upon a time I did!
Every Thursday from now on we, will be learning Netball skills. But its not just with an normal teacher, it is a professional Netball coach which was a nice lady called Liz. We had to learn about Netball to acquire and hone our skills.
Our first activity was to practised a variety of passes, like chest pass and bounce pass. The only difficult thing was a chest pass, because I’m don’t normally play netball. So it was pretty difficult for me. Bounce pass was very easy, all I had to do was bounce the ball close to the feet, after I did it once I thought I was the man, then I took a look around me and saw everyone doing it. I thought to myself ‘ I’m still the man in my own word !’
Our next activity was to practised pirating to the outside activity, which was called statue of liberty. It was pretty fun learning how to take the ball off other people, then like stepping them. This is a very good skill that you can use in Netball. After a little while I got kind of BORED. So I started to get annoyed !
The last activity we had was landing. We had to jump over hurdles and catch the ball , then land how we would land in a real Netball game. ‘ Now this is difficult ‘ , I thought to myself. When it was my turn , I went to run and almost tipped over. It was kind of embarrassing but at least I didn’t hit the ground. I took my turn again , and I landed in a perfect way. I was so glad I did it properly !
Finally , a game ! But I was to sour to play, but i still tried. In my team I had only 4 players , including me. But I was the only girl which was gay. We had a game with another team of 4. It was kind of a difficult game, but my team was the bomb, we won over all. But at the end I had a AWESOME time.
That was a good time of my life. I can’t wait for next time, when we have Liz again. I am going to try out for our school Netball team to. I LIKE NETBALL !
