I have been playing netball for a Leopold under 11’s side. After all of my teams netball games, it has come to an end. There were no finals or grand finals. In netball I usually play GK (Goal Keeper). The  GK has to try to stop the other team from getting goals.

On Friday the 24th of August my whole netball team went out for tea to the Sporties for our break up. My team mates are Claire, Lainey, Millie, Lily, Hannah, Kamarah, Rhiannon and Chloe.  There are 9 of us.

It was a fun night at the Sporties.

Here is a PhotoPeach:

The photos weren’t taken at the Sporties they were taken at Skilled Stadium where we played netball. It was a round robin and we played heaps of teams. At the end Maddie Browne from the Melbourne Vixens came and signed autographs. It was amazing to get a autograph from her.

  1. Dear Skye,

    As usual, an interesting, informative and well written post!

    It sounds like you really enjoy netball. Have you played with those girls for a few seasons or was this your first year of netball?

    I just played a bit of netball when I was in high school. I usually played Wing Attack or Wing Defense. I wasn’t quite tall enough to play Goal Keeper or Goal Defense like you. 🙂

    I’m sure you were very excited to meet Madison Browne from the Melbourne Vixens. Is she a role model of yours?

    I wonder what you will do now that netball is over! Luckily you still have ballet!

    Your teacher,
    Miss Jordan

    • Dear Miss Jordan,

      Once again, thanks for your magnificent comment! Thanks for the compliment about my post. 🙂

      I do enjoy netball. I want to be a netballer or a teacher when I grow up. This year was the first time I played with the team I listed. I played at Life Be In It last year.

      I am not that tall but I do enjoy being Goal Keeper! My opponent was usually the same height as me. I used to play Wing Defence a bit when I played at Life Be In It.

      Yes, Madison Browne is a rolemodel for me. She plays WA and C.

      My coach (Fadge) told my team that we were playing netball at Life Be In It for the Summer Season which is term four this year and term one next year.

      Have you ever met someone famous?


      • Dear Skye,

        Oh that’s good, you don’t have to wait until next year to play netball! Life Be In It is a good sporting venue.

        Hopefully you can become a netballer or a teacher one day! I think you’d make a great teacher. I’ve seen you helping the new student bloggers during the year and you show great skills and patience.

        Have I met anyone famous? Hmm…in terms of sports, when I was younger I got autographs and photos taken with lots of Geelong football players. I’m not sure if I’ve met any other famous people, if I remember any I will let you know!

        Best wishes,
        Miss Jordan

  2. hi Skye

    I found your BLOG through Miss Riley, at my school. She and her class, 1L, love to visit your blog and this helps Miss Riley in her teaching of blogging.

    You are a wonderful example to us all.

    I am a teacher too, in Sunshine Melbourne. I have a sister who lives in Geelong and my niece and nephew go to school in Manifold Heights.

    I am a netball coach and loved your netball post. Our season finishes at the end of the term. I coach a 13/U team, and my daughter is in the team. She plays C and WA. We will be in the finals this season, but it will be tough for us to get to the GF (some teams are quite fit, we need to work on this).

    I am also a Vixens supporter – we go to the home games, my daughter and I. Maddie Browne is our favourite player – you were very lucky to have her at your club and to meet her. Were you excited?

    The photo peach is great. Should I join photo peach so that I can make these slide shows on my blogs? Was it difficult to learn to use photo peach?

    I look forward to visiting your blog again soon. I hope you don’t mind!

    Enjoy your week Skye!

    • Dear Miss Carmel,

      Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a great comment! Do you have a blog? How long have you been blogging for?

      Thanks for the compliments! 🙂

      That’s great that you are a netball coach. How many years have you been coaching for? Best of luck that your team gets into the grand final.

      I haven’t been to a Vixens netball game before but I do sometimes watch the Leopold side. They are older than me. I watch a bit of netball on TV.

      I was very excited to see Maddie Browne when she came.

      PhotoPeach is a great web tool for blogs. You should definitely try it out. It isn’t that hard once you know how to do it.

      From your blogging buddy,

      • Dear Skye,

        Thanks for replying so fast!

        I don’t really have “a blog” for myself, as such. I am just learning about blogging and beginning to introduce blogs through my teaching. We are about to renovate some classrooms at our school, so I thought it would be great to see what the students would like, in their new rooms (furniture and colours etc). I setup a blog for this:


        Some students have contributed to this – we are just new and learning all about good comments and so on.

        Like I said to you before, you are a great example to us! Keep it up! Your teachers and parents must be really thrilled with your blogging skills.

        In regard to my netball “career” – I used to play when I was younger. I loved it. When I was about 35 years old, I joined a team and played at night, once per week. I loved it still. But, then I had an accident on court and broke my finger. It really frightened me. It made my work really difficult for awhile and I had lots of physiotherapy.
        This kind of turned me away from playing…sadly. I have been coaching for 5 seasons. I love it but I really want my daughter to have a different coach, so that she can learn from someone else.

        I will give photopeach a go! Thanks for the advice.

        I hope to keep visiting your blog and learning from you. I also hope you don’t mind!
        Do you have lots of visitors? How do people find you I wonder…?

        Happy blogging,

        from your (new) blogging friend,

        Miss Carmel

        • Dear Miss Carmel,

          Thanks for the wonderful, long, quality comment! 🙂

          I liked your new blog! It’s great that lots of the students are commenting on it and saying there opinions.

          Thanks for saying I am a great example. I love blogging and it definitely helps you improve your writing, reading and typing skills. I earned my own blog in grade two.

          That’s bad that you broke your finger on court. How did you break it? I used to always get hit by the ball on court. It hurt but not as much as it would have hurt you breaking your finger. I have never broke anything so I don’t know how it feels.

          I have a Clustr Map on my side bar and it shows how many visitors I have had and how many visitors in the last 24 hours. It also has a few other things. It says that I have had 2,514. You should have a look. I think you should put it in your blog. If you don’t know how to I can show you?


          • Hello again Skye,

            Thanks again, for replying!
            You must be really busy with so many visitors to your blog!

            I would love to learn how to add the cluster map. If you are able to “step me through it” that would be great! It is so impressive that you are teaching lots of people to use blogging. What a great communication tool.

            Regarding my finger…it was really painful actually. I went to intercept a ball, playing WD at the time, and hit the ball with my pinky. It kind of snapped in half. At the time, I knew it was bad, because it hurt! But I played for another few minutes…until someone threw me a pass, and I couldn’t catch it! My finger had swollen really badly. When you break a bone, it usually hurts but sometimes your brain causes you to have a delayed reaction – especially in sport, because you want to keep playing. Did you see Sharelle McMahon when she hurt her Achilles tendon? She tried to walk, but she knew it was really bad and had to sit down on the court. Sometimes footballers keep playing with broken bones! They don’t “feel” the pain until they stop. That’s strange, isn’t it?

            Side tracked…!

            So, new blogging pal, yes please! Teach me to improve my blog!


            Enjoy your end of week!

            Miss Carmel ☺

  3. Dear Miss Carmel,

    Thanks for replying! We are sure having a long conversation.

    That would have really hurt when you broke your finger. I always get hit by the ball on my pinky but it doesn’t hurt as much as it would’ve hurt you.

    I’ve helped a few students add a Clustrmap to their blogs, and we use online instructions to help us. Here is the link:



  4. Thanks Skye,

    I will check out the link soon –
    and hopefully have no problems setting up the cluster map!

    I will go now, and look at your latest post!

    I hope you keep up the enthusiasm you have for blogging – your family must be very proud!

    bye for now,
    Miss Carmel

    • Dear Miss Carmel,

      Thanks for replying to me!

      I hope you have no trouble with the Clustr Map. If you do just tell me!

      I love blogging and I don’t think I will stop for a while.


    • Dear Ash,

      Thanks for leaving a great comment on my blog! I really appreciate it!

      Thanks for the compliments.

      Fadge was a wonderful coach and I loved my netball team.
