I am a copywriter and cake eater with a funny name squeezing delight from life in the Perth Hills with two invigorating teenagers, a cyclone of a toddler, and some geese.

School Holiday Netball Workshops With Added Girl Power
Australian research shows that girls tend to move away from physical activity once they reach adolescence. Which is just one more reason to be heartened by the sheer volume of girls currently involved in my local netball associations.
There's myth-busting, fierce, feminine energy at netball. Damp hair, rosy cheeks and awesome skills refute the idea that sport isn't 'girly'.
Research also shows us that girls who are friends with other girls who play sport feel more confident to tackle new sports. It's an extravaganza of a cycle and something your girl can be part of right now (even if you've missed signing up to a netball team this season).
Darling Range Netball is hosting morning netball intensives for girls in Year 5, 6 and 7 at the Ray Owen Sports Centre in Lesmurdie. The morning is scheduled for this school holidays – Tuesday 14th July.
The focus is on fun, excitement and improving skills. Your girl doesn't need to be a netball warrior to attend.
Netball is queen of girl's sport – it's the number 1 sport played around the world by girls and women. The knowledge gained on a netball court will undoubtedly translate to these girls' everyday lives, encouraging them to be more confident, skilled and gain leadership qualities.
