Merri Creek Primary School – My Passion: Netball (Anika)



by Anika


Every time a netball game was on the TV I usually watched it. I love how the players could move so quickly on the court and catch any throw.

A few months later my mum got a text from Polly’s mum asking if I wanted to do netball training with her and Matilda, Tepa and Lucy. Of course I said yes because I’ve been wanting to try netball for ages and ages.

I loved training a lot but I went to training I looked at the team that played games and I really wanted to play games. A few weeks later me and a few others got split from the group I usually go with. One of my coaches Olivia told us that we were the new team and I was really excited.

Later I remembered that I have gym on around the same time that the netball games are and I was devastated. That night I decided that I wanted to quit gym to play the netball games and I did and it was so amazing even though we didn’t win our first match.

I go for the Melbourne Vixens and my favourite player is Kate Moloney and my favourite position is centre




  1. Hi Anika. Nice piece. Have you been to see the Vixens?

    PS You talk a lot more than you write.

  2. I like how you watch sport shows, I don’t.
