News from India: Charu goes to camp!

In the month of December, Charu, a Goal participant from Deepalaya, New Delhi was selected to represent the Delhi team at the 23rd Junior National Netball Championship held at Nasik, in the state of Maharashtra . She was very nervous at the thought of travelling out for a netball tournament for the first time in her life!

She travelled with the Goal Assistant Coach, Sandhya Golder to Nasik for the championship, which was held from 20th December to 25th of the month. The team put in its best and reached the qualifying levels and lost at the Quarter finals to the team from Punjab.

In the championship, Charu specifically learned about coordination. She said that earlier she never gave importance to playing as a team. She used to concentrate on her game rather than the team members. She realized the importance of team building and in coming months will try to work on it. This exposure brought home her own weaknesses and Charu realizes the need to work more on her game and improve on her passes. This tournament was an eye opener for her: She says:
“Contrary to my perception, I got to know that there are many good netball players in India and I want to become one of them!”
