It was one heck of a day, the sun was shining super bright , I could not see any clouds just a hot ball of fire and a blue clear sky, The perfect time for a game of Netball.

Me and my friends just came back from a game of touch I was so tired that I couldn’t been bother walking back to class. As soon as I heard about Netball,I was about to burst in to tears because I knew that we were going to do a lot of running around.

We got to the court and we saw this lady holding a netball in her hand,I was guesting that,she was the one from Auckland Netball Association, her name was Liz. She was talking about what do we do when we land and how to land properly so that when we grow up we wouldn’t have to go threw knee surgery or ankle surgery.

We started of standing in the scorching sun while to develop new skills, Liz talked about how we could focus on our passes and how to land perfectly without getting any pain in to your thighs or legs. She also told us how tactics of to pivot and pass the right way.

After learning all of the suitable tactics, to land,pass and pivot, we moved on to a game of netball, as soon as I heard about a game of net ball I thought It was another running game, but I was wrong instead of to hoops we used four corners and four big poker dots.

One team had bibs and the others had nothing, I was in the team that had the bibs on and we named our team the ‘Point England Rhinos,’  we started of playing like little kids until everything got interesting, me and my team the Rhinos started to pass the ball around and we scored a lot points, the game was over and me team had won, 5 points to Neil.  

I can’t wait until the next practise.
