Coaching Bio

I am a GD/GK for the Sunshine Coast Lightning in 2022 and have played for the Queensland Firebirds from 2018-2021 in the Suncorp Super Netball Competition. I have also represented Australia at various competitions over the years. I love sharing my passion for Netball!

I have also really enjoyed getting out into the community to teach our next generation a variety of netball skills - both on and off the court. I love watching players grow in confidence as they learn new skills, and most of all, have fun!

I will be back in Brisbane throughout mid-late September.**

My daughters were fortunate enough to have a training session this afternoon with Tara. From the very beginning Tara was friendly and professional. The girls related very well with her and were fully engaged with the session she ran. Tara gave some great tips, showed them many defensive skills. We would definitely be keen for another session in the near future. Thank you! 😊

Tara was great at working with my daughter to improve her netball skills. She gave her some really useful tips. My daughter absolutely loved it!

Melissa - 28-04-2022

Tara was awesome. The session was for my 11yr old daughter and she loved every minute. Tara was great at teaching and explaining how to improve my daughters skill set. She was fun whilst professional. We will definitely be booking another session in the future and wouldn’t hesitate to highly recommend.

Tara is an amazing coach! She is able to easily explain how to defend your player in a more efficient way. She made the session very fun with numerous games and drills - my daughter left the session feeling very confident and excited to put into practice what she had learnt in her next club game. Would highly recommend Tara!

My daughter plays defence and we recently watched a Lightening game and she couldn't take her eyes off Tara! For her birthday (I surprised her) and organised a lesson for her. Tara was absolutely amazing and my daughter learnt so much. Tara really went above and beyond in all aspects of netball from training tips, to game day tips, to skills tips and made it so much fun. She now (with birthday money she received) wants to book another lesson with her! Highly recommended Tara x
