About the author

Gillian Lee

<p>Gillian is the youngest of three daughters. She comes from a netball family; her mum and two older sisters played netball. Gillian spent Saturday mornings, and many a night, watching her mum and sisters playing netball and she longed to be old enough to play too. When Gillian was in grade five, (that&rsquo;s the same age as many of you readers!) she finally got her opportunity, and what a stunning debut. She played goaler and her team won the grand final!</p><p>Perhaps all those years of watching netball made Gillian hungry for netball success, or maybe it was the advice of her mother who said, &ldquo;Go mad, go and do everything&rdquo;, because it was the start of a wonderful netball career</p><p>Gillian first played in the city for an under 16&rsquo;s representative team. From here she was selected as a defender for the Victorian under 16&rsquo;s and her elite netball journey began. She played in many great teams along the way, including the Australian under 21&rsquo;s.</p><p>However, one of Gillian&rsquo;s fondest netball memories is playing in a team with her mum and sisters called,&nbsp;MKs, or mums and kids.</p><p>Gillian is now a well respected coach and coach educator, both nationally and internationally, as well as an author of netball books&nbsp;and a netball coaching DVD series.
