Netball Club - Passing, Shooting, Footwork
Ms Day on how Netball Club can help girls stay active for life.
Every week, an outside coach comes to our Netball Club to give coaching sessions to develop students' competitive ability.
Netball Club is open to girls in Years 7 and 8 who were successful in the netball trials at the beginning of the year, with the club running on Tuesday and Thursday after school.
There is a real competitive focus during our training sessions, as girls learn the necessary skills to give them the best chance when they compete against other local schools, which will happen on a frequent basis as they are in a netball league.
Students develop their passing, shooting and footwork alongside attacking and defending tactics.
Netball Club helps to develop girls' leadership skills as they use their experience to coach and support other pupils in the club as well developing their competitive game of netball. Pupils will also develop their officiating knowledge where they will be able to go on and achieve a coaching or officiating qualification from the knowledge they have obtained from these clubs.
The PE department decided to run netball club due to a high demand in primary school netball in the local area. We wanted to give girls the chance to carry on playing netball at secondary school, and also bring in those who are new and want to gain more knowledge.
Through clubs like this, the PE department can help girls stay active and enjoy staying physically activity throughout their school years and beyond.
