U 16 Tournament in St. Kitts
Of course England would have taken this scoreline very hard and the final game 71-42 defeat over Barbados came as no surprise being an old hand at the psychology of the game. Barbados also is not fit enough physically nor mentally to take on the kind of assault that would have come from England's bruised egos. The game would have however been a good learning experience for the team demonstrating how far they have to go. The ability to raise their game despite injury both mental and physical and the resolve to dig deep down and proclaim that you are the best and play like it. The difference at this level is fitness, strategy and belief.
With the foundation for a sound coaching team in place, Barbados needs to have a strategic plan for netball if we are to stop moving in a vicious unproductive circle. President Juanita Cordle has to layout a strategic plan to take netball in Barbados forward. Everyone loves a winner. The Association must go after small victories to achieve the greater ones. Netball Shots will be watching on closely and will give the Association its full support.
