Last update for the year, there was more netball left than I thought! And more successes!
- Big win for Senior Regional last Sunday vs Harrogate Phoenix and Maggie a happy coach because of a good performance as well.
- Another excellent win for Northern League on Monday in the postponed game vs Stormers, and again Jan happy with the girls.
- And another excellent win against a tough team in Netball Nights in the last game of the year, with Mark being very happy with the team performance of the youngsters (supplemented by a couple of seniors who were able to stand in and help support the team to victory)
In terms of our athletes in representative squads, here's some info especially for those not on Twitter! Lots of our athletes played for Yorkshire age groups against Mavericks last weekend, mixed results, but good runs out, so well done everyone. Our athletes have also been in friendlies for a number of NSL squads, and Lightning U21/19 and Wasps U21/19, so again, well done. Updated Roll of Honour lists will be on the website where there are any changes! It’s impressive, take a look! Seven of our athletes were at Roses National Academy Camp at the weekend, including fitness testing and Christmas meal. Let’s hope the Quad Series Roses Squad that is announced today contains some players/former players!
Netball admin continues to be busy, with fixtures and registrations for the second half of the year. Senior fixtures are already all on the calendar. Junior fixtures will be put on the Google Calendar as we get them and team admin will be in touch for availability during the break. The Junior Regional fixtures are available, West Yorkshire Junior fixtures will probably be available after Xmas!
Massive thanks to all our coaches and team admin/backroom helpers for making the Club run and be able to get all those teams on court each week with so many good results and also so many athletes doing so well in their respective age groups/pathways etc. Also great to see the continued development of our coaching team as well, learning for themselves so that they bring that learning back to help develop our athletes.
Here’s to a successful netballing 2018! The season gets going the first week in January, with plenty of matches on 7 Jan, use the Google Calendar for info!
