Coaching Bio

I am the GA for the Sunshine Coast Lightning in the Suncorp Super Netball and I was fortunate enough to represent Australia at the 2018 Commonwealth Games. I love coaching and seeing athletes improve. My areas of expertise are shooting, footwork, ball skills and the fundamentals of netball.

I started playing netball at the age of 8, but first fell in love with Netball when I was 6 years old, when I use to watch my sisters play. I love how netball gives me the opportunity to train and play with amazing people all working towards a common goal. The best thing about coaching is seeing the faces of the athletes when they realise they can do it!

Wow - Steph Wood is truly super human ... Our team instantly got to work under her command and looked like they were having so much fun the entire time. A life changing 1.5 hours for 8 young lives !! They will remember this day forever and more importantly .... They will aspire to be somewhat like their hero also (SJWOOD). Thanks Steph for your natural ability and thanks to PLAYBOOK for the seamless process :) Grateful T.D

My daughter Grace couldn't stop smiling the whole session. Steph is caring and thoughtful coach with lots of inspiring words. She tailored the session and really took the time to work on things Grace wanted help with. We will definitely be re-booking and recommending to any young netballer.

Very professional & warming coach. Steph was wonderful and added a few small touches with helped out with shooting percentage and agility on the court. Well worth the trip up to the Sunny Coast.

Steph Wood is such a genuine and caring coach. She really takes the time to get to know the child she is coaching and tailors her session to them. I love her down to earth nature! Even though we drive a total of 3 hours for the session it is very much worth it. Thank you both Steph and playbook for these amazing opportunities that you provide for the young people across not just netball but all sports. Keep up the great work. And we will be back for more sessions that is for sure.
