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!

Many thanks to Steph Wood for an awesome coaching session. Our girls throughly enjoyed themselves and gained some valuable tips to improve their game. They have talked non stop about the session since.

The session with Steph was such a great experience for our girls. Steph was able to identify key areas that would help the girls with goal circle movement, their shooting techniques, how to get free, and committing to the drive. Steph was able to talk about mindset and how to deal with over thinking things on court which was a huge help for my daughter. This was such an amazing opportunity for the girls and they absolutely loved it. Steph made all the drills fun as well. Can't thank Steph enough for making herself available to run these sessions!

we had a second session with Steph to tidy up a few skills. I would highly recommend Steph, she not only has talent but is excellent at passing on her knowledge as well. She finds a great way of incorporating learning and fun for my daughter. Thanks again

I enjoyed Steph helping me with my shooting and ball handling skills. She gave me some great new drills that I can do at home to better my skill level. She explained and demonstrated the drills very well. The whole experience was made fun and enjoyable. She was very easy to understand and a great coach. Highly recommended
