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!

My daughter just finished her one on one session with Steph Woods her absolute favourite player and is on the biggest high. It was a fantastic session where she learnt so much from Steph. Best birthday present ever! We will certainly recommend this to other people and look forward to another session. Steph certainly lived up to my daughters (and my) expectations. Such a wonderful role model for my 12 year old. Thank you.

Steph is so kind and her awesome coaching and mentoring has helped my daughter so much. There were some great skills she taught her that she can do at home and her shooting has already improved. What a truly amazing person Steph is :) The smile on my daughters face was priceless. We are definitely looking forward to doing another 1 hr session. Thanks Steph you are awesome!! We couldn't be more happier. 100% loved it 😊

Another awesome session with Steph. Some fantastic drills that can be taken away and done at home. Fun and informative. Steph is so engaging in these sessions and she’s makes you feel at ease and relaxed to get the best out of you.

My daughter (11 years) absolutely loved her session with Steph. Steph was very friendly, patient and extremely knowledgeable. She gave our daughter lots of drills and great advice on what to practice at home. She can’t wait for her next session with Steph!

The session with Steph was amazing. The drills she completed were both interesting and challenging. Her encouragement throughout the session helped my daughter enormously. She willingly provided tips on getting the most out of every training session and asking for feedback. Steph’s approach put my daughter at ease (she was very nervous training with her idol) Steph made the session so much fun that she soon relaxed. My daughter (13) learnt so much in such a short period of time. We would recommend a training session with Steph to anyone looking to improve their netball skills she was awesome.
