The Redprint with Lisa Beehag

 In this week’s The Redprint, NSW Swifts Head Coach Lisa Beehag talks PB’s, match play and the importance of full-court defence...

The NSW Swifts hit the court for their first taste of match play this pre-season taking on their team-mates and members of the NSWIS Silver Scholarship Squad in an intra-Club match.

Playing six intervals of 10minutes as opposed to the regulation 15minute quarters, Beehag was impressed with some of the phases of play particularly towards the end of the match, commenting that the team improved as the game progressed.

“The girls were excited to play their first game and we started off at a million miles an hour because of all the excitement before we settled and started to work some good lines and get some combinations going,” Beehag said.

“One of the reasons we decided to play 6x10minute periods was because we wanted to work on ensuring we played 10minutes of quality, hard netball and I think overall we did get that.

“We really started to see some combinations and flow in attack and defence towards the end of the game. We have a long way to go with both of those things but it was good to see some little things start to happen.”

With a number of options across the court, Beehag kept the instructions and goals simple for the first game.

“It is exciting. We have a number of different options across the court of where we can play people and we’ll continue to explore those and try to work out what works on certain styles and what is going to give us the best options in each of the games we play,” she said.

“We wanted to work on our full-court defence, so our first goal rather than being an attacking goal was a defensive goal. Attacking wise, it was about using the zones on the court and progressing the ball down the court.

“Everyone impressed me at different times. The midcourters were throwing some penetrating balls into the shooters, we had some smart movements from the shooters, and the defenders took some good ball and got some held ball calls as well.”

Not only did the team impress on the training court, but they’ve also been breaking some PB’s in the gym with Jason (NSW Swifts and Sydney Swans Strength and Conditioning Coach) excited by some of the results of the testing that was conducted this week.

“The work they’ve been doing in the gym has been really good. We had some great results in their competencies on Monday night where everybody improved, including a couple of the girls who managed to do three or four chin-ups,” Beehag said.
 
“The energy in the gym has been really good. The girls have certainly lifted another level which is great to see.”
