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 am currently unavailable for coaching* 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!

Thanks Steph for an amazing training session for my daughter today. Steph asked my daughter what she wanted to get out of the session and then tailored the session to achieve her goals. This is not my daughters first session with Steph, and she is constantly mixing it up and we always walk away with new skills and training tips. Steph is so friendly and down to earth and I would highly recommend her sessions.

Steph was incredible. Steph adjusted the session to achieve my daughters goals and needs. She was personable and really down to earth. My daughter finished the lesson just beaming and said it was so much fun. She has taken away hints, tactics and strategies to help her improve her game. She wants to rebook to learn more.

Steph was wonderful with our girls! The four of them were different ages (from 8 -16) and all at different stages of their netball game. Steph took the time to encourage and develop each of them. They all had a lot of fun and it was a wonderful experience they will be talking about for many years to come. Thank you Steph!

Steph Wood was amazing with our daughter Emitee. Friendly, encouraging and down to earth. Great explanations and great advice on attacking and shooting. This was a great experience for Emitee and one she won't forget. Highly recommend Steph to any netballers looking to develop and improve in any areas. Great afternoon out.

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.
