    19 Things That Only GA And GS Will Understand

    Having a solid GA and GS duo literally makes or breaks an entire netball team, don't @ me.

    1. In every netball team, you've got your attack and defence players. But let's be real, if your GA and GS aren't the ultimate duo, you really don't stand a chance at winning.


    You may disagree with me, but you would be wrong.

    2. If you're in said duo, you know that your sweet shooting skills are largely due to your telepathic connection with your GS/GA.

    The ESP is strong.

    3. You don't even have to be looking at each other: you can just feel where the other person is about to head and where you need to feed the ball to.

    And you can count on them to be there at the exact right moment, ready for the pass.

    4. When they're about to take a long shot, you're already next to the goal post, ready for the rebound.


    Blocking out the GK, eyes up, hands up and 100% making sure that rebound is yours.

    5. And you'll always shout "here if you need" just in case they opt for a cheeky pass.


    Because you are ~supportive~.

    6. When it comes to rebounds, you're a ride or die for that quick jump.


    We are not leaving this circle without a goal.

    7. And if the GD or GK even THINK of trying to get that ball from you, you know they've got another thing coming.


    This is OUR circle, babe.

    8. Plus, chances are, they're going to be pulled up for contact anyway.


    Don't hate the player, hate the game.

    9. But you will DEFINITELY chuck the shit if you get called for contact.


    "But umpire, she shoved ME!" * Rolls eyes dramatically.*

    10. Nothing beats the feeling of making a clean goal from the distance.


    Except maybe being right under the post when your GA/GS makes an epic shot.

    11. When it comes to the centre pass, you've got a power play that you run almost every single time.


    It goes C to GA to WA to GS, or back to GA if the GK has cottoned on.

    12. Although sometimes you could run it in less than three passes, which literally made you feel like the biggest boss bitches on court.


    C to GA to GS and straight into the goal.

    13. As a GA, you know the sweet, sweet feeling of getting a pass from an intercept, and then lobbing the ball straight to your GS — who is ready and waiting under the goal post.


    And THAT is how you get it done *hair flick*.

    14. And as a GS, you know there's nothing better than intercepting a GK's throw from the baseline and getting the unexpected goal.


    Because even though you're a shooter, you've also got some sweet defence skills.

    15. If you were the GA, you were definitely one of the taller girls in the team — and also one of the peppiest.

    You definitely dabbled in Little Athletics and dance on the side.

    16. And you were the first to yell "GREAT DEFENCE" whenever your GD or GK stopped a goal.


    If you're not yelling encouraging instructions at your team from the centre third, are you even a netball player?

    17. If you were the GS, you were the queen of sarcasm.


    Someone's got to make the game fun, right?

    18. But the other team found absolutely nothing funny about your ability to score from anywhere in the circle.


    She's funny and she's fierce.

    19. And even though it is a team sport, the bond between a GA and GS ran deeper than most.
