Q & A

Greatest achievement off the field: Finishing school and getting in to Uni

How many hours per week to you train/exercise? 15-20 hours

What kind of diet or nutrition plan are you on? Nothing too special, I naturally eat pretty healthy but everything in moderation. I can’t live without a little bit of chocolate from time to time though!

What do you love about your sport? The people you meet and the experiences you get to share with them, there is nothing better than achieving special things with a special group of people.

If you could change something about your sport, what would it be? I’d love women’s basketball to receive more attention in Australia so that we could make our league completely professional and keep our best players on shore.

What motivates you? I’m never satisfied and am always looking for ways to improve and different goals to achieve.

Do you have a profession outside of your sport? Studying at uni.

Three words that describe you: Determined, loyal, passionate

If I wanted to play your sport, what advice would you give me? Get the fundamentals down first like dribbling, shooting, passing. Once you have the basic skills then just practice and play as much as possible so you can get used to reading the game and learning how to move on the court.

Rachel Jarry Supports Sport for Women Day

Sport for Women Day is a great opportunity to celebrate female athletes who may not always be given the recognition they deserve. They are all great role models and can really promote health and fitness in the community.
