I agree with the standards, and to be honest they really aren’t that high for full-time athletes. There are KPI’s in every job, netball is a job for these athletes and this is one of their KPI’s.

I know from playing week long netball tournaments myself that it is incredibly physically taxing and every ouce of your aerobic capacity is challenged – and I’m sure it would be even more taxing playing at the international level. The standards aren’t ridiculous, they are absolutely necessary. Aerobic capacity is an enormous part of our game.
