GIANTS’ Kiera Austin at ERNA Clinic

EASTWOOD Ryde Hawks Netball Holiday Clinic proved a huge drawcard again for local players aged between 7 and 14 all wanting to improve their skills now the new Eastwood Ryde Netball season has commenced.

The ERNA Hawks players and coaches worked with the young players on the finer points of netball – passing on new drills and skills and their love of the game.

Some of the older players were lucky enough to have a coaching

session with the ERNA Hawks Opens Coach Jen Wright.

New GIANTS netballer and ERNA junior representative Kiera Austin was in attendance and spoke to the girls during a lunch break.

Kiera talked about how hard she had to work on her game both on and off the court to become a GIANT.

The young girls all had lots of questions for Kiera and then happily lined up to get her autograph.

Sharp shooter Kiera was part of the GIANTS team that defeated reigning champions Sunshine Coast Lightning 54-51 in their Suncorp Super Netball opening round clash at the Qudos Arena last Sunday.
