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!

Playing History: - Sunshine Coast Lightning contracted player 2022 - Queensland Firebirds contracted player 2018-2021 - Australian Diamonds Constellation Cup invitee Feb 2021 - Australia A Team 2019 - Australia Fast5 World Series 2018 - Australia U21 World Youth Cup 2017 - Queensland Firebirds training partner 2017 - Australian Netball League, Queensland Fusion 2016/2017 - U17 and U19 Australian Squads 2015/2016/2017 - QLD U17 & U19 Teams (Captain both years) 2015 & 2017 I have absolutely loved playing in the Suncorp Super Netball competition for the last 4 years. 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'm still in rehab from my recent knee surgery so I'm currently only taking on small group, team and online sessions. In early 2022 I'll be extending my sessions back to one-on-one coaching as well! My Brisbane locations are mainly for weekend coaching options, feel free to message me on PlayBook if you have any questions about locations.

Tara was absolutely fantastic! Such a great coach, sharing so many great tips with my daughter. She was prepared, so nice and the whole session was so rewarding for my daughter. Will definitely work with Tara again!

What a fabulous coaching session Tara provided my daughter. She kept her engaged the whole time and provided great skills that were easily understood and able to be replicated at home. I can't wait to book another session, thanks so much Tara!

It was my daughter's first session with Tara, and she has taken away so much to support her netball development, after just one session. Tara was extremely well organised and engaging. I can highly recommend Tara. We are booking in for another session.

Tara was amazing. My daughter learnt so much in the hour. It was like she knew exactly what she needed to work on. Such a lovely person and kind person.

Amanda - 03-05-2021

This was our daughter's third session with Tara in the last 18 months. Tara is patient, kind and knows exactly how to work with young players. She is down to earth and distils information into small take away lessons easy for the kids to work on. Amazing to have the opportunity to be so up close and personal with their heroes!
