Section B - PERSONAL PERFORMANCE PORTFOLIO My sport,being netball,is easy to identify strengths and weaknesses on the court due to the game being in quite a small area compared to games like rugby or football,and also doesnt have too many people on the court (7 players to each team), therefore its not hard to concentrate on all the players.Here,i am evaluating my strengths and weaknesses for certain aspects of my game. I play GA (Goal Attack) in netball,which is one of the most important positions on the court,due to it being an attacking player,it also 1 of the 2 players that can shoot,so good shooting techniques and attacking is essential.Things like co-ordination,agility,balance,fats reactions,etc is vital when playing this position. - Skills/Techniques My strength for this section would be co-ordination.I fell my co- ordination is strong as when i have the ball,i can concentrate on all the players ahead of me and more ...read more.
