4 Top Tips for Netball Greatness

Want to know how to improve your netball game?

We have some top tips for Netball athletes that can help take your game to the next level.

RHP Physiotherapists have been on the forefront of netball in Australia for over 7 years, working with Netball Queensland and the Queensland Firebirds throughout. Athletes are running faster, jumping higher and playing harder than ever before. We won’t claim to be behind this, but we certainly haven’t been silent observers.

So, how can you get to that level?

Firstly, start now and start simple. If you train, your skills improve. So, logically, the goal for all athletes is to stay on court and this means prevent injuries. We wrote about it here for what individuals can do, and for what the team should be aiming for.

Thankfully, we also know that by preventing injuries, you can also improve your speed, balance and jump height. You might even surprise yourself how much your performance improves! Just ask Ruby!
