Netball player provides inspiration

International Netball Player – Georgia Elliot

Netball Player and local teenager, Georgia Elliot, 17, is proving that with determination, commitment and great support, it is possible to make your sporting dreams come true, while successfully juggling school and life.

Netball Strength and Conditioning

As a natural athlete, Georgia has competed at District Level Track and Field, Cross Country and Swimming. Her overall passion is netball, which she started playing when she was seven years. By the time she was 12 she represented Queensland.

From Queensland to the World Netball Titles

At 15, Georgia was introduced to indoor netball and this is where she has had her biggest successes to date. She was selected in the ladies Queensland Lightning Team (16 and under) in her first year and in the following year played in Ladies Queensland Heat Team (18 and under). Based on her outstanding performances she then was chosen in the Australian (18 and under) in 2015, which competed at the World Titles in October 2015. They beat South Africa in the final 50–45 to become the World Champions. A truly amazing achievement.

Georgia is now completing her final year at Mansfield State High while still playing outdoor and indoor netball at school, club, open and under 23 levels. She has split Year 12 over two years in order to balance school and sporting commitments. Sometimes tough decisions are made.

I love sport and sometimes I have to sacrifice social events and choose between sports and teams. This is really hard, but the people around me make it so much easier” says Georgia.

Local coaches offer support

Georgia says she has great support in family, friends, teachers, coaches, team mates, physios and her Core Health Coach. Core Health Coaching invited Georgia to be part of their “Pay it Forward Program” and provides her with specialised netball strength and conditioning training.

Owner Cameron Corish was particularly moved to give Georgia support due to little financial support and sponsorship available, plus the additional costs of training and travelling. “Her commitment and determination means she is a great role model and inspiration to the younger players,” says Cameron.

Georgia’s training with Core Health over six months has seen much improvement in stabilising her core and ankles. “So much so,” says her mother, Letitia, “that she no longer straps or wears ankles guards to play netball. Her reach is so much further that shooters are now being called for held ball against her

What’s next

Georgia’s recent success in May was as part of the local School Girls team – Metro East who won gold at the Queensland School State Titles. This is great preparation for the upcoming State Age Championship in July.
