Byrne proud of players' commitment during COVID-19

Published:

The resilience and commitment shown by Sunshine Coast Lightning athletes in recent weeks has impressed Head Coach Kylee Byrne, despite facing adverse conditions due to COVID-19 restrictions.

According to Byrne, the athletes remain motivated while self-isolating and suggested the bonds between the playing group had even strengthened in recent weeks.

“Just like the rest of the country, here at Lightning, we are taking each day as it comes and we are doing the best that we can,” Byrne said.

“Our Lightning athletes have all adapted to this new world and they have been resourceful, using what they have at home to ensure they keep busy and healthy.

“They are working extremely hard to maintain a level of fitness and strength, ready for the day we can return to the court – while also making sure that they stay connected as a group.”

Modified workout and training programs have been implemented in line with the updated player contract requirements, while the Club continues to focus on player welfare and social connection.

“We do a lot of work in sport about controlling the controllable and this situation is no different,” she said.

“As with everything that this group does, I am extremely proud of the way that they have handled this challenge, despite everything that has been thrown their way.”

Byrne said re-gaining ‘control’ in these uncertain times remains a strong theme for the group, with further announcements on the Suncorp Super Netball season expected to be released in late May.
