Coaching Bio

I'm an Aussie Diamond and Qld Firebird who has been coaching aspiring Netballers for several years.

I'm a former WNBL and Australian underage Basketballer who transitioned into Netball in 2012. 3 years later I made my international debut for Australia during the 2015 Constellation Cup. I am currently playing with the QLD Firebirds in the Suncorp Super Netball and am a 2x Premiership winner with Firebirds. As well as one-on-one Netball coaching I also run Netball health and fitness clinics. Away from Netball I am currently studying Dietetics. ** I will be available for in person coaching again from November 2023, please contact PlayBook to join my waitlist or are interested in online mentoring **

FANTASTIC - Everything and more than what we had hoped for. Gretel was professional yet very friendly and the girls absolutely loved their training session with her. We would highly recommend Gretel and hoping she is back in 2024 so we can make this an annual pre-season coaching session - Thank you Gretel

My daughter thoroughly enjoyed her training with Gretel. Gretel was so kind and encouraging. My 9 nearly 10 year old took away so much from the session and had fun while learning the tips and skills Gretel showed her. Two days later and she's still talking about what Gretel taught her and how nice she is. Thank you so much for your time, effort and also all your words of encouragement. I highly recommend Gretel's training sessions.

My daughter was very nervous prior to the session with Gretel, however Gretel put her at ease right away. Although my daughter has been a Representative player for three years, Gretel showed her new and refined movements to incorporate into her game. Gretel was always encouraging and positive, and my daughter thoroughly enjoyed the session in way I haven’t seen on court in a while. Her face was beaming even while learning new movements. “Gretel said…” started many of her sentences for half an hour after the session, and a new inspiration for pre-season fitness and training shows signs of emerging. We’re beyond delighted with Gretel’s session, and are planning on booking more.

What an amazing experience for my 11 year old daughter to train with her hero. The session exceeded our expectations. Gretel is kind, encouraging and such a wonderful role model for all aspiring athletes. I cannot recommend a session with Gretel enough. Thank you for your time, knowledge and inspiration x
