Boro raises funds for the NBCF

nbcf--logoLast Wednesday, the Greensborough Netball Club held a Health and Well-being night in place of our usual netball training session.

All Boro players and coaches were asked to make a $5 donation to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) upon entry and raffle tickets were sold to raise additional funds.  All funds that were raised have been donated directly to the NBCF, with the current total at $236 (correct as of 08/07/2015).

If you would like to donate, please do so via NBCF Go Fundraise GNC.

The night commenced with a talk on sports nutrition by Boro’s own Team One Captain, Bianca who has recently completed her nutrition studies.  Bianca spoke about the importance of fueling your body prior & post games/training, and the right combinations of fuel and hydration.

Boro’s favourite Physio, Julz Allan from Alphington Sports Medicine and the Athlete Advantage was also in attendance, taking each team through crucial exercises for Netball, including core strength, landing and balance drills.  Alphington Sports Medicine provides 10% off for all NFL and NNL players as well as a vital concussion service on the weekends.

Ebony Korkie, Boro’s Myotherapist from Untangled Living located at Rivers of Yarrambat, took each team through a session of using foam rollers and the general importance of looking after your body pre & post netball.

The event was fantastic and Boro would like to thank our sponsors for the night, who graciously donated prizes for the raffle:

NBCF-thankyou

 

GNC learn defensive skills from the best

Geva Mentor =
The Greensborough Netball Club had the pleasure of hosting Melbourne Vixen Geva Mentor at a special training session for our 2015 players last week.

Standing at 188cm, Geva is the starting Goal Keeper for the 2014 ANZ Championship premiership winning Vixens and also plays in the England national team. Geva’s impressive list of netball achievements include:

  • ANZ Championship All Star GK (2012, 2013, 2014)
  • Melbourne Vixens MVP (2012, 2014), Melbourne Vixens R/UP MVP (2013)
  • Top of the table in Intercepts and Deflections in the ANZ Championship (2013)
  • ANZ Championship premiership – Melbourne Vixens (2014)
  • ANZ Championship premiership – Adelaide Thunderbirds (2010)
  • ANZ Championship Grand Finalists – Adelaide Thunderbirds (2009), Melbourne Vixens (2012)
  • Commonwealth Games (England) (2002,2006,2010, 2014)
  • World Netball Championships (England) (2003,2007,2011)

After the success of GNC winning the Northern Netball Leagues Section Two Premiership last season, the key focus of this special training session was defence as we continue to work through our preseason training themes.

Assistant Coach Natalie Jolley says, “Geva was amazing and all defenders should take note from what they learnt. It’s clear that she’s a natural coach and she took time out to speak with almost every one of our 40 players and provide valuable one on one feedback.”

GNC’s four teams were divided into two squads, with each squad being coached by Geva for 40 minutes in a number of footwork, defence and timing drills.

GNC President Jacqui Martin says, “Geva was an absolute pleasure to have at training and it was an invaluable experience for our club to have someone of such a high international standard to teach our netballers who range in age from 15 right through to late 30’s. She was lovely, encouraging and you can easily see why she is one of the World’s favourite netballers.”
