Team Reports

Day 1 – 28 June 2013


After months of anticipation and training preparations, we are finally at Brunei for the Asian Youth Championship 2013. Greeted farewell by family and friends, we left with excitement and determination to claim the Champ title for Singapore.

While waiting to board the plane, the girls played “pictionary” and created much commotion which drew the attention from other passengers. Aqilah had to be the most comical and entertaining during the game.

To our surprise, lunch was served on board even though it was just a 2hr flight. We had a choice of Hainanese Chicken Rice or Black Pepper Beef, both were equally yummy. Upon arrival, the Liaison Officers from Brunei Netball Association greeted us warmly. Immigration clearance was very smooth.

However, we were taken aback seeing how dressed up the Sri Lanka team were with their national costumes. They even had a formation for photo taking and the girls picked a tip or two from that.

The weather was good, airy & not too hot. We arrived at Abdul Razak Hotel Apartment about 4pm and after settling down, the girls went for a stretching session with the Coaches.

After dynamic stretches, they went on to play “eagle & chick” & “3-man chain”. You could probably hear Jocelyn & Athirah screaming from miles away and Parveen laughing her head off while Aqilah fell on the floor. I (Shuangru) managed to capture some funny moments and beautiful shots with Oli’s S4.

Dinner was at a nearby restaurant and everybody were looking forward to it not only because we were hungry but more for the free WIFI available. Everyone started to flash out their hand phones and busy asking for the Wifi password. This really shows how addicted we are to the modern technology, including us. Everyone had a satisfying meal and headed back to hotel for team talk.

After the team talk, the captains (Cheryl & Shelby) presented hand made nametags with a quote: 

“No One Is Going To Hand Us Success. We Must Go Out And Get It Ourselves. That’s Why We Are Here. To Dominate. Both The World, And Ourselves.”

We believe the team had set the right energy and tone for AYC and now its time to sleep. Good Night Singapore.

Day 2 – 29 June 2013

ayc 21s team

We started our day with breakfast at 7am. Then, we had a practice match with the Hong Kong team. The final score was 42-18 and we had a good start. Though fatigue hit us, we still played our game with high intensity. Even though Hong Kong team is not in our grouping, we treated the match like the actual AYC competition as that was our one and only practice match we had to familiarize ourselves with the court and poles before the start of our tournament.

During the afternoon, we had a focused training for our attack line so as to brush up on some small details for the upcoming official start of the AYC. We wanted to make sure that we had everything right and in place so that we will be the best that we can be for the up-coming games.

Lastly, we had dinner catered for us at 7.30pm. After which some of us rested, went to see the physio or had a one on one catch up session with our coach before we went for a team talk at 10pm. Initially we wanted to practice our performance after the team talk but due to the time constraint……PLEASE LOOK FORWARD TO OUR PERFORMANCE (WHICH WE HAVENT HAD MUCH PRACTICE BUT STILL…….)

Okay goodnight all~ Olivia and Melissa
