Menai Hawks Netball Club host junior clinic featuring star players

Former and current Giants Netball stars hosted junior clinics at the Menai Hawks Netball Club last week, giving junior players the chance to learn from the best.

The three clinics,which ran for about 90 minutes each, took participants through a range of drills and games focusing on both improving attack and defence.

Among the stars at the clinics were Susan Pettitt, Maddie Hay and Kristiana Manu'a.

Pettitt, a former Australian Diamonds representative, was in charge of running the clinics and said it was a "really positive" experience.

"I love coaching the younger players and seeing their love of netball grow as well as their level of skill," Pettitt said.

"The girls were very sweet and wanted to know all about my netball career.

"Who knows, one of these girls could one day wear my Goal Attack bib for Australia and might look back on these clinics as a motivational turning point."

Menai Hawks president Chris Newman thanked the Giants stars for attending and hoped the clinics would bring future success for all participants.

"Our club puts a lot of work into providing netball clinics for the players and the coaches," Chris said.

"It is wonderful when you see the improvement in their Saturday games."
