Zariah Amory Bermuda July 2018

1. How does it feel to have been selected for the squad?

Being selected for the squad is great. Every chance I get to play at a high level I’m excited as it helps me to bring my own level up.

2. How will you prepare for the competition between now and July 21th?

Preparing for the competition between now and July, I will be constantly training not just with the squad but on my own.

3. When did you start playing netball and what prompted you to start?

I started to play netball at the age of 7 at West Pembroke Primary where we would play netball in gym and I just grew a passion for it. I later signed up to play with North Village where I have been playing ever since.

4. Do you feel the sport of netball gets enough support from the local community?

I do not feel netball get enough support from our local community because they see it as being just a recreational sport.

5. What are ultimate goals in life, both on and off the court?

My goals in life both on and off the court are to be successful in everything I do, no matter what the situation is. I plan to take the opportunities that I have right in front of me and make them become a challenge I can face.

6. If you had to, for some reason, have one non-netball player on your team, like a local politician/entertainer/public figure, who would you choose and why?

I’d say a Gombey. Gombeys show a lot of energy while dancing & I think that type of energy would be good to have on the court.

7. Which Bermudian athlete, coach or sporting figure do you admire most and why?

My Coach Anthony Mouchette. He has coached me for at least 4 years and has seen my ability and has always pushed me to do the best that I can do.
