About Sam Poolman
Sam Poolman has been playing netball in the Hunter since she was seven years old. Since then, she's gone on to represent her region, her state and her country. Sam is currently playing in the Super Netball in the position of Goal Keeper.
Sam attributes her success to three key traits - being coachable, passionate and committed. After reaching the highest peak in her chosen sport, she's returned to her home region to help aspiring young athletes follow in her footsteps.
While Sam currently plays in Sydney, her frequent return visits to her home region allowed her to identify a pathway gap for young girls wanting to turn their sporting passion into something more.
Sam created a program called ASPIRE to help further develop and assist athletes to reach their goals, and we've been right behind her all the way.
ASPIRE assists local netballers in becoming successful on the court and Sam's holistic approach to the program helps develop the life skills and identify personality traits that are vital to a career as an athlete.
