EP 27 – Michaela Sokolich-Beatson – From Netball Hater to Star Performer


My guest on today’s show is an aspiring star of her game. Her name is Michaela Sokolich-Beatson and she’s a starting defender for the Northern Mystics Netball Team in the ANZ Premiership Competition.

Michaela grew up on the Whangaparaoa peninsula, 45 minutes north of Auckland City, where she attended the local College and played representative ball from an early age.

In 2015 Michaela was selected in the New Zealand U21 team, a team which she will captain to the World Youth Cup in Botswana this year.

On this episode of the Athlete Development Show I chat with Michaela about:

  • Childhood
  • Parents
  • Overcoming injury
  • Great coaches
  • Motivation and confidence
  • And much, much more…
