All players are staring each other in the eyes, this is game time, I have to play my hardest and maybe that won't even be enough.
Silence. The first whistle blows this is only a trial but I put myself in a game state of mind, this is my team and we must work hard to win.
After only five minutes we are called in to talk about our foot-work and court balance the only thing I focus on is my drink bottle, man am I thirsty! Before you know it we're back on court and rearing to go I stand like a shield pushing my defence off the line allowing me to make a loud and clear intercept. Perfect. My plan worked she misses the pass, I snatch it in, I'm a hungry tiger, I heave it down the other end of the court, someone passes it to GS she swiftly balances her palms, then, my favourite sound...... The swish of the net.
Congratulations to all those talented girls who trialled, for those who made it in congratulations! And for those who weren't so lucky keep trying, imagine how hard it would have been for those selectors!
Question to everyone:
Have you ever been under pressure? Been so nervous that you want to scream?
Share your story with me, I'd love nothing more but to hear from you!
