Sarah is strengthening the netball community in more ways than one. Our netball-specific strength programs have our girls getting stronger, faster, and jumping higher on the netball court while growing their confidence at the same time.
Sarah also works with a variety of athletes 1on1 to further specialize their training and nutrition to optimize their sports performance.
With years of sports-specific education, training, and personal performance, Sarah periodizes our programs specifically for injury prevention and better on-court performance based around the netball season. This leaves our athletes on the court rather than on the sidelines needing treatment.
As a netball athlete herself, Sarah has succumbed to injury in the past. She knows first-hand the disappointment, frustration, and hard work it takes to return to sport after injury. This allows her to connect with our athletes through personal experience and knowledge. This has grown her interest in rehabilitation and supporting athletes in their return to sport.

Through this experience I was the head S&C coach for an academy netball team whilst working through 10 S&C certificates and being mentored by some of the industries top sport scientists and strength and conditioning coaches. This saw me make the move to Perth to complete my Masters in Sports Science under one of the worlds top sport scientists Assoc/Prof. Greg Haff (formerpresident of the National Strength and Conditioning Association [NSCA] – the governing body for strength and conditioning in the world) with my research focusing on reducing injury risk factors and improving performance in young netball players.

The past 6 years have seen me as the head S&C coach for the West Coast Warriors Netball Club, I coordinate the strength and conditioning programs for the state league squad, under 20s squad and the mens state league team. In addition to this, I regularly visit the Warriors Academy team, schools and various netball clubs around the region to speak about strength and conditioning in netball and run strength sessions.
