"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
