Coaching Bio

I am a professional netball player (WD/C) on the Sunshine Coast. My areas of expertise are mid-court coaching with a focus on 1-on-1 defence and fundamental netball skills.

As a professional netball player, I am fortunate enough to be involved in one of Australia's most dynamic, competitive and fun sports. I am excited about sharing my passion for netball with the next generation of athletes and helping them to achieve their goals; whatever they may be. I run all my sessions from the Fishermans Rd courts. The Matthew Flinders location is reserved for athletes with access and permission to use the courts. Career: Sunshine Coast Lightning #8: 2017 - current Australian Netball League Queensland Fusion: 2013 - 2016 Queensland Underage Teams: 2012 - 2014

Maddy is an enthusiastic and fun coach who did a great job teaching young players key netball skills. I highly recommend Maddy.

Thanks so much to Maddy ... Wow the entire squad will remember this session for life :) M.M You are a GIFT and you truly have an exceptional ability to connect one on one with anyone you work with. Such an extraordinary talent for the game of netball :) Thank you so much for time and thanks again to the entire PLAYBOOK Team for such an easy process !!

Maddy provided a really well planned session that looked at drills that could help me improve my game. As a male player I have not had exposure to a lot of 1-to-1 coaching opportunities so it was really valuable to not only learn some drills but identify some things that I can really improve on. Having Maddy not only explaining what to do, but why, was really important and meant that I could take a lot of what I learnt on board.

Maddy was so good with my daughter. She discussed my daughter needs and goals then talked about the session and seemed to want her to get the best out of the session for my daughter. We will use Maddy for another session to start next year. Thanks Maddy 😊

Maddie McAuliffe is an incredible coach. From the moment she engaged with the girls her confidence and easy manner ensured they were switched on, eager to please and comfortable in her company. Maddie taught the meaning behind every drill, worked to the girls competence and encouraged match play scenario's lifting the confidence and repertoire of every player. If you want a high octane session with laughs and a hunger to hit the court with new skills here she is.
