"A valuable resource for any coach wishing to learn more about the art of coaching netball.""Jill McIntoshFormer Australian coach, 1995 to 2003 "A very informative resource."Vicki WilsonFormer Australian captainCurrent Firebirds National League coach ""I played with Jane Woodlands for a number of years, developing an appreciation of her approach to the game. Jane is an extremely analytical thinker, and this book is a result of the way Jane views the game: with precision, great depth and analysis. We are starved of good coaching resources, and what Jane has produced will deliver coaches a complete understanding of all aspects of the game. This book is a must for any netball coach or player who is serious about his or her craft.""Kathryn Harby-Williams, former Australian captain, world champion, Commonwealth Games gold medalist
