Natalie Shaw
Under 16 Development Coach

I believe in Sport NZs philosophy “Balance is Better” and think we can see the benefit that this is having as more netball players are coming into our programmes with skills from other sporting codes.

I am passionate about creating opportunities for young, developing athletes to grow and play. I have been coaching for 7 years and been through the Netball NZ Community Coach pathway, achieving my CCA 1 and 2 award in 2021. I am excited to coach the Development Rep team for Hamilton this season.
