 Tamara Anderson Netball Selection

Xavier Netballer, Tamara Anderson has been selected for the under 16’s QLD Samoan Team. Tamara is the youngest member of the Xavier opens netball team and has been an instrumental part of our success this netball season.

QLD Samoa will be competing in the Challenge of the Nations Netball Championship in Brisbane this November.  Other Pacific island nations are also represented in the tournament including Maori Netball QLD (NZ) and Australian Indigenous. She was selected into the team after two trial days recently held in Brisbane with girls being invited to trial from throughout the state.  This is a continuation from selection in the Hervey Bay U14 representative side, Xavier Catholic college QISSN at 13 years old and last October, selection into the Netball Queensland Regional Academy program (RAS).
Tamara’s a member of the Motivationz netball program based on the Sunshine Coast. She has attends clinics to work on fitness and netball specific training.  These clinics identify young New Zealand netballers residing  in Australia in an attempt to keep them in the New Zealand system.  As a result Tamara will be travelling  with a squad to Fiji this December to compete in the tournament against other nations and includes visits to the local orphanages to meet and engage with those in communities less fortunate than ourselves.  Such a great experience to be a part of.
Tamara has worked exceptionally hard throughout the year to improve her fitness and skills to perform at an elite level.  Her sessions include fitness and agility for her position in the mid court, training at the local PCYC who sponsor the RAS athletes. She regularly provides training logs to Netball Queensland for their information and assessment.
Apart from her own drive and determination, Tamara has been lucky to have the guidance of RAS coach Kerrianne Farrelly, who is the highest qualified coach in the Wide Bay region.  Kerrianne (KC) plays are big part in Tamara achieving her goals.
