Singapore Youth Netballers Won Asian Gold After 23 Years with NYSI Support
NYSI Physiologist Marcus Lee tracked each netballer's training load in the lead up to the Championship.
NYSI Sport Physiologist Marcus Lee also supported the coaches by monitoring the training load of each player prior to the Championship.
“We had the players rate how hard they found each training session from a scale of 0-10. These scores were then tabulated to give an overall view of each player’s training load throughout the week,” said Marcus.

NYSI also looked at the nutrition needs of the youth athletes in the lead up.
NYSI Sport Dietitian Ng Ee Ling held a workshop to teach the netballers nutrient timing, how to identify the nutritional properties of different food items, snack ideas, and the importance of hydration.
“They had the opportunity to learn some basic cooking skills while preparing their own lunches. This also provided a good bonding opportunity for the girls and coaches. It was beneficial for the girls as proper nutrition aids in their recovery after matches,” said Ee Ling.

During the Championship in Jeonju, South Korea, NYSI Performance Analyst Nur Adilah binte Masismadi spent many hours analyzing video footage of netball matches. Seated at a higher ground to record matches, she used the Dartfish App to code center-passes, turnovers, feeds and shots as they occurred during the game.
“My role was to analyse the Singapore and the opposition teams’ matches,” said Adilah.
The end of a match still meant more work for Adilah. From syncing the video recording to the tags and looking at specific plays, Adilah picked out clips to identify the opponents’ preferred patterns of play.
