Aspiring netball players coached by the best

It's rare to see Irene Van Dyk in person, and it's not often the netball star pops into school, but for a few lucky students, she and her Pulse team- mates will be teaching some of the trade secrets to improve their shooting game.

It's every aspiring Silver Ferns' dream to get valuable coaching lessons from legends of the game.

While the Pulse is in town preparing for the match against the Canterbury Tactix, it's opportunities like this they really enjoy.

As for the up and coming netball talent, they'll be taking home with them an invaluable experience that could make them one step closer to donning the black dress.
