Karla Mostert

Sleep in or up early?

Up early!

Game day breakfast?

Eggs, avocado, toast.

How do you spend game day?

It depends on what time the match is but I prefer doing something to keep busy. Anything involving coffee and a good book would be ideal.

Nervous or excited before a match?


What’s in your kit bag?

Just the usual. The whole kit would be in there. Nothing out of the ordinary.

Favourite pump up song?

I am into any music. I am more into Indie folk music. I do not listen to pump up music, I prefer something more relaxed. Having said that, whatever is playing in the locker room is fine with me.

Speak or silent in the changeroom?

Quiet! I sit there and take it all in – embrace it.

Key message before the match starts?

Have fun! I think it is important to enjoy yourself. The times I did well, I always enjoyed it so I remind myself to be in the moment.

Most exciting thing about playing netball?

The hype during the game. The way you feel, the thrill of the moment. Broadly, the people you meet, the places you see, the off-court experiences.

Post-match recovery?

Ice baths and eating the right foods. I prefer drinking something over eating something – anything with milk. I am always looking forward to the next coffee.
