Swifts' Michaela Armer will try her luck for two lots of success in the 2019 season, playing in the A Grade team and coaching the C Reserve team to finals.
Armer began playing netball as a junior at Stawell Warriors before moving away to Ballarat for University.
"When I moved back to Stawell, I joined the Swifts," she said.
"My brother, Zac was playing at the club and my family were there as well. It made sense for me to try out a new club. A lot of players who I played with as juniors no longer were at the Warriors and had either moved away or moved clubs."
Armer has always played at the attacking end of the court and has become an important player in the Baggies A Grade shooting structure.
"I don't really get nervous and think about shooting too much while playing," she said.
"I don't look at it as I'm the one who has to get the goals. It's a team effort really. I think the defenders have more pressure on them to stop the opposition goals.
"If you miss the goal, you just move on and get the next one."
Armer said the pressure can build up when the games are close where every pass, shot or intercept counts.
"I get more nervous and frustrated in myself when it's a close game and I'm not performing well or feel like I'm letting down the team," she said.
"I'm pretty chilled out on the court. I don't think I show too much emotion even though I could be feeling it inside."
In the first year of a coaching role, Armer has taken the reins as the C Reserve coach.
"I've been an assistant and co-coached many years ago," she said. "It's a very new experience and very daunting. I find it more stressful than anything else.
"There is a lot of pressure finding things for them to do and wanting the players to improve. Because they have been so successful, the pressure is really on.
"My mum plays in that team as well and people always say it's funny where they hear 'go mum' from the sidelines."
During the warm-up before playing, Armer said she tries to keep it simple.
"I don't do anything the same every week," she said.
"I would never walk away if I have missed a shot. I keep shooting until I get one in and then walk away.
"I use it as a bit of a confidence booster before the game."
Not one for superstitions, Armer has changed her Friday night routine recently and said she thought it was paying off.
"I've found if I have a relaxing Friday evening and spending time with friends and unwinding from work it helps me switch off from work and focus on netball the next day," she said.
"Life is so busy. I'm a teacher and your mind never stops. I use netball as a break away from work and have found by changing my routine from going from work to sport it clears my mind a lot better."
