Coach Joanne

Director & Head Coach

I developed a love of netball very early in life and have been playing, coaching and spectating ever since. Many of my best friends, amazing experiences or life lessons have been found either beside or on the netball court. 


In 2012 I co-founded Sport Ready Netball Academy with Sharyn Hill. It was the first netball academy of its kind in Singapore and to us was like our 5th baby – we each have 4 children.  


I want netball at Sport Ready to be a place where all players and coaches discover their inner strength, power and confidence. I want them to learn the true meaning of teamwork and the ability to work with others, especially when opinions, abilities or even appearance differ.  I want them to learn to turn disappointment (a game loss or team selection) into determination and drive.  I want them to laugh, make friends, work-hard and push to be the best player or coach they can be.  


I am so proud to be part of the “PURPLE ARMY”

Coach Asha

General Manager

I am a Singapore born English woman. Having played netball since I was 5 years old, inspired by my mum who always dragged me along to her netball, it’s still one of my favourites!

I want everyone to experience netball the way I have - work hard, play hard & enjoy! Since becoming a coach I have found out a lot about what is important to me. I believe that the best netballers are 'games' players and not just netballers! My netball influenced how I played basketball, and how I saw space in touch rugby and vice versa.


I believe the most interesting and successful players are tacticians, people who can read the game, see space, pass the ball & add something individual to their style of play. I try to incorporate this into my style of coaching. One other aspect I really try to instil in my players is to be thinkers! After all, they are the one playing the game, not me. And if they can understand how their decisions on court can directly influence the outcome then I have done my job!

Coach Connie

I've been playing netball for as long as I can remember and it's hands-down my favourite sport! I love how the game is evolving and I feel like it's getting more and more exciting to watch.

When I moved to Singapore in 2015 from England, the first thing I did was join a netball club - all my friends here are netball lovers!

I love sharing my passion with the players I coach and seeing them achieve their goals is so rewarding. Making sure all players are given the opportunity to fulfil their full potential, whilst keeping their love for the sport and enjoying their time on court or at training is everything to me. 

Coach Lesley

I'm Jamaican/British and I moved to Singapore with my family in 2016. Netball has been a passion since school and I have many memories of playing netball with my mum and sister back in the UK. I have been lucky to enjoy netball wherever I go and when I join a team I know I'm settled!

I joined Sport Ready 2 seasons ago and have really enjoyed coaching such eager and energetic Sport Ready girls and boys. I love sharing the passion and fun of netball with the kids and also helping achieve their personal goals and achievements. 

Coach Mel

I have been involved in netball in many ways for 40 years, from playing and coaching to being Director of Gladesville Karens Netball Club in Sydney. I have coached women and girls of all different age groups.


People play netball for different reasons and I am passionate about developing all girls to enjoy and play netball to the best of their ability.

I believe that teaching great technique is pivotal to girls achieving their best on court. Netball should be fun, challenging, exciting and a place where all are welcome. 

Coach Sam

Hi, I am Australian. I loved playing netball when I was a child and had many good friends from the game. 

After a long break I came back to coaching and playing when my daughters joined Sport Ready. I love the game of netball and hope to teach everyone else to love it too. My philosophy is hard work and enjoyment!

Coach Leeann

I came from a small country town in rural Australia where Netball dominated the landscape every winter.  I was fortunate to learn and love the game from early primary school.  I did go on to representative levels whilst at school then adult years have seen a mixture of social and competitive games.

I coached junior/Netta netball in Australia prior to moving to Singapore 2.5 years ago. I began assisting the netball coach at our international school (CIS) where I eventually took on the role as Development coach then SportReady Coach for Senior girls at CIS.

The fostering of netball as an inclusive, fun sport at an early age, I believe, provides lifelong lessons in; sportsmanship, sharing and winning and losing.

I believe ‘how you train is how you play’, so give it 110%.

My two children are part of the SportReady Purple Power!

Coach Nurul

Hi! A passionate netball player, coach and umpire from Singapore, I embarked on this journey only at 13 and I must say it was the best decision ever. I've always believed that sport can bring everyone together and it's certainly so for netball! I have forged friendships along the way through netball, regardless of age, gender or nationality!

Coaching to me is all about empowering players to work on their strengths so as to excel in their game. What I give to the team is what the players will give back to the team in return. It brings me great joy developing and nurturing talents through coaching. 

Coach Jasmine

I was a horrible Netball player at 10, I couldn’t catch a ball, didn’t understand why I did conspicuous amount of drills  and always took longer than the rest to ‘get it' but you know what - my coach never gave up on me!

When I was 17 I wanted to pass it forward and started coaching, somehow it lead me on the path of becoming a personal trainer but I never stopped playing netball socially. Being a trainer I’m equipped with skills in helping  kids development better movement on court. I’ve been injured many times when I was younger because I wasn’t taught proper landing and strengthening exercises whilst playing netball and I want to use my skills to empower players to get stronger. I’m inspired by my former coaches to pass my skill set on to the little ones.
