About

Career


If you don’t know the name Jessica Anstiss already, you will soon. Strong, quick and versatile, Anstiss is one of Australia’s leading young midcourters. Her performances for Western Australia at 17U, 19U and 21U level were rewarded with National selection in the same age groups.

 

She dominated the 2015 Smarter than Smoking West Australian Netball League, named Player of the Year in a side that didn’t win a game. She is a current member of Australia’s Netball World Youth Cup squad, recently returning from a series of solid performances on the Netball Australia 21U Tour of Fiji. 


She’s played for the Western Sting in the Australian Netball League since she was 18, walking away with the Most Valuable Player Award last year after dominating her opponents at both Centre and Wing Defence.


All this and she’s only 20.


Jess had her first taste of elite level netball last year, named as a West Coast Fever replacement player for their clash against the NSW Swifts in Newcastle. Her development through the Netball WA Player Pathway has allowed her to fit seamlessly into the 2017 West Coast Fever squad. She epitomises a team-first mentality and is passionate, loyal and committed to seeing Fever succeed in the inaugural season of Suncorp Super Netball.
