17 Netball Moments That Will Take You Straight Back To Those Cold Saturday Mornings
Yelling at the shooters on the far end of the court, "REBOUND!"
Braiding your hair for netball comps with ribbons that matched the colours of your uniforms.
And making sure that the bands on your braces matched, for that ~next level ~ commitment.
Shivering through the winter mornings, when you either had to be at an early start carnival or you were umpiring the 8 a.m. netters.
Or sweating during the unseasonably hot days where the sun bounced off the gravel courts.
Eating your way through all the great snacks at the canteen.
And getting a bacon and egg roll, hot off the BBQ, as soon as you rolled up to the netball carnival.
Fishing your ankle guards out of your bag only to find that all your laces had stuck to the velcro.
Muttering under your breath every time the shooter missed a shot off of one your ~fabulous~ intercepts.
Screaming encouragement at your defensive teammate because when the ball came down your end, it was you and her against the world.
Yelling "REBOUND!" at both the defence and attack sides every time the ball was under the hoop.
Skinning your knees and putting your body on the line for an intercept only to hear your mum yelling, "Get up — you'll be fine!"
Saying "no" to every social activity because netball was life.
Jumping up gleefully when the umpire FINALLY called the GA for contact.
And pulling up your shirt when you walked off the courts to show your mum the string of bruises you had forming on your back.
Yelling advice at your teammates when they're about to do something wrong.
Holding a HUGE grudge against a team from a game you played a few years ago.
And finally, going into sudden death at the Grand Final and feeling like you were playing for Australia at the Commonwealth Games.
Netball for LIIIIIFE!!!
