The Club holds trials for U12 and above. Read the Handbook, found on CLUB INFO tab to help you decide if we are the club for you/your daughter, especially because of the standard and the expectations of a “performance” club. Talk to a coach, current parent/player or one of our admin if you’re not sure.
We have a talented coaching team, led by Head Coach Anna Carter (ex England player, Head Coach to former Yorkshire Jets Superleague, an England Technical coach and Leeds Rhinos Coach), with Maggie Birkinshaw (ex England player and Assistant Coach at Loughborough Lightning, England selector and Leeds Rhinos Coach), and a range of enthusiastic, experienced and qualified coaches, such as Jan Hemsley, John Hipshon, Libby Hodgkiss, Mark Boocock, Susie Stead and Becky Hewson. We are continually developing coaches.
The club was awarded CAPS Silver status during 2016/17 season, this includes safeguarding, player and coach
development, as well as all aspects of running a successful club. We are currently aiming for Gold status. We have done the annual Paris Disney tournament and toured Australia in 2018.
We encourage our players to take advantage of the opportunities we provide to fulfill their potential and play at the highest possible level. We have Club members in the England system across, both National Academy and seniors, and playing in Superleague. We also encourage players to learn to umpire and coach, both valuable and sought after skills and experience.
We have occasional social events as a Club and in each age group and periodically support charity events. We are very appreciative of our volunteers at the club, if you are able to help please contact Susie on firstname.lastname@example.org. Please visit the website regularly and follow us on twitter (@LeedsAthleticNC) and our members only Facebook page Leeds Athletic Netball Club to keep up to date with what is happening and how you can get involved.
Here is to a successful 2019/20 season.
