NETBALL CHAT with Linda Bunch

THE official netball anthem has been adapted to the new world of hash tag technology.

The internationally renowned netball catch cry is honoured by players of all ages and levels.

The basis of the anthem is "#hereifyouneed” where players automatically call out to teammates in a sport where the player with the ball can only take one step before passing.

It doesn't matter if the player is Allora goal keeper Laura Geitz, comedian Sharon Strzelecki or 10-year-old Betty in her first fixture season, all players know the #hereifyouneed call.

In netball, every player is vital. No one position is more important than another; players support each another and back you during the game.

The simple call of #hereifyouneed covers a wealth of options and avenues for team members.

"The Team” is the key, whether juniors meeting for the start of the season, friends, family or corporate warriors in the CBD challenge.

In netball, everyone learns all sectors of the game as well as many valuable life lessons like timing and decision making.

Three seconds is all that stands between a good, bad or ugly pass and the well-placed bobby pin could be the vital deciding factor.

The terribly overused cliché There's no "I” in team truly does sum up the beauty of playing a team sport (particularly for children).

There is no individual pressure in netball, just encouragement to grow and build skills surrounded by the best people ever - your #hereifyouneed teammates.

Australian Diamond player Caitlin Bassett has been quoted as saying "whenever I have challenges the first thing I do is go to my teammates, because they're my best supporters.”
