Author & Auckland Netball Development Manager
In youth sport the word ‘talent’ is everywhere but it can be a treacherous trap if we give immense value to an inconsistent and unreliable predictor of success. By understanding what to look out for, especially things that may not be what they seem, we can be better-armed with the knowledge that ensures our kids have great sporting experiences.
