Well done for some great netball in this first half of the season. Most of what we have set out to do has been achieved and gone well, with the inevitable minor hiccup! Thanks to the players for all their hard work and to parents for paying, fetching and carrying and supporting! More to come in the new year!
- apologies to the U12 players who turned up at Gateways on Thursday and it wasn't open, at least you got to train at GSAL
- our U11 have their last training session tomorrow prior to beginning their games in January, great to see so many youngsters developing so well!
- huge congratulations to so many of our players for their achievements recently, into England Squads at various age groups, Yorkshire Jets Squad, Jets NPL Squad, those who are already in Jets ADP, those doing well in their school teams......too many to mention individually!
- big congratulations to our Head Coach who is now a selector for the National Academy Programme
- delighted to see our Head Coach of Juniors, Kylie Paynter, selected for Jets and as Vice Captain for her leadership ability, we are delighted. The Club has sponsored Kylie so you will see our Logo appearing on Jets stuff and we will have some tickets to give to the girls
- don't forget to book your tickets for the Quiz Night, see update 12 for information, it is important to support these club events if you can
In juniors, our U16 and U14A were both WY champions and progress to the Regional Rounds. Our U14B finished a very creditable mid table of the top league. Our U12 finished 3rd. In seniors, we are currently top of Northern League, top of Regional League, second in WY Superleague and we are working our way back up the Premier 1 league (which is the real big girl netball!).
As you know, you will see many of our players in the Jets squad. This year's SuperLeague is being described as the most exciting to date, as there have been lots of changes in teams especially on the back of the world cup. We are delighted with the group of players we have at Jets, with Stacey Francis as Capt, Kylie as VC, and our super coaching squad.....buy your tickets here http://www.ticketline.co.uk/netball-superleague-yorkshire-jets#bio
So, two last things.......
- very best wishes to everyone for a great break and all the best for the new year
- massive thanks to our coaches, Anna, Maggie, Jan, Vicky, Melissa, Rochelle, Kylie, Beccy, John, Lucy, and to others who have helped them - we wouldn't have the standard of play and level of achievement if it weren't for their dedication
- massive thanks to members of the committee, again without whom there wouldn't be a club, Mark, Susie, Morag, Helena, Louise, Tim, and to the age group helpers and team admins who try and make the coaches role easier!
