Performance Netball Course
This fun and unique 2-day programme has been designed for different ages and abilities, from beginner through to representative level.
The coaches will work with their groups and individuals during the course aiming to improve game play and technical ability. All girls who attend the course will go home having received continuous feedback over the 2 days from the coaches on their performances during the week, with areas to improve and ideas on how to develop further.

The school are and have regularly been County Champions at U14 & U16 and are competitive at the South West Regional Finals. The course aims not only to improve individual skills and match play but give each individual something to takeaway to continue to improve their netball skills.
The course will include:
- Precise shooting techniques
- A range of attacking & defensive skills
- Speed Agility Quickness
- Core and strength and conditioning
- Match situations- getting the most out of centre passes, backline passes etc
Course age groups
We split the courses in to 2 distinct age groups, ages 8 – 11 years and 12 – 14 years. Coaching within these groups is delivered by experienced netball coaches, on approximately a 1:10 basis, ensuring quality training is received by each attendee. Based on the experiences of the Head Coach throughout the course, attendees may be moved between age groups depending on their improvement and abilities throughout the course, and numbers attending.
All groups will be nurtured in a positive and creative environment, ensuring all girls reach their maximum potential. Players will work on all aspects of their game and will be introduced to drills and skills used by top-class players, with tactical play developed to National League standard. The aim of the courses are to fully develop each player from day 1, helping them to achieve their maximum playing potential.
Coaching will take place at the Clifton College Sports Ground in Abbots Leigh, a regular venue for county tournaments. The girls will be training outside (weather depending) and inside within our fantastic Indoor Dome facility.
