On Wednesday 3rd June our Digital Realty Netball Squad had the pleasure of attending a zoom meeting with NSW Swifts player, Australian Diamonds player and Academy Graduate Paige Hadley!

Paige was a member of the Academy netball squad from 2006 – 2007 and was able to talk to the girls about what it was like going through the Academy and netball pathway all the way to becoming an Australian Diamond!

The Q & A style session presented athletes with a great opportunity to ask questions specific to their training and growth as young netball athletes.

Speaking of her time with the Academy Paige said: “it’s the little things you learn now that puts you in great stead for your journey”. She encouraged the athletes to ask as many questions as they can while they are young and to be themselves and not worry about fitting in!

She was also able to give the girls advice on things like how to balance training and study, staying positive on court and how to bounce back after missing out on squad selections.

The Digital Realty netball squad and the Academy would like to thank Paige for taking the time out of her busy schedule to talk about everything netball!
