The intense training schedule allows her to improve her game enough she was selected to trial for Severn Stars, Loughborough lightning and Bath U19 NPL squads. Sam was then scouted and selected to go to AOC national Colleges team and was also vice captain of their national A team.
Sam’s training & physio
Sam’s training schedule is very busy, training 6 times a week, which doesn’t include matches. As Sam trains a lot, including weights in the gym, she can suffer from having tight shoulders. A sports massage from 5 Valleys relaxes her shoulders preventing any pulled muscles or discomfort when training.
During netball matches Sam has suffered many ankle injuries, such as sprained ankles, for which she receives treatment from Gemma at 5 Valleys Physio. This treatment has enabled her to return to training and continue to improve her game.
