A superb afternoon of netball on Sunday at The Edge, with the opportunity to see game play from Tameside, Oldham, Huddersfield Giants and Hatfield U16s as well as our U14 team in action against Hatfield and Oldham.

Great news, one of our U17 players Eva Locket has passed her C award umpiring test. A lengthy process involving a day course, a theory test, lots of practise, pre assessment and final practical test. Thanks to Julie Smith who mentored Eva throughout. Well done Eva.
Advice today is for netball players to be washing bibs and balls after each use. Remember to wash your hands before and after the game.
Wash your hands as often as possible for 20 seconds.
Watch out for changes in advice, fixtures and training which will be dependent on England Netball and Public Health Guidance.
There will be a team admin meeting on Thursday 19th March 6.30am in the drama studio at GSAL.
Please remember as a performance netball club it is expected that athletes attend training in the correct training kit. Black loose shorts or leggings and black or LANC blue t shirt or vest. Sweatshirts must be LANC black or blue or from Nationals.
Disney have closed the Paris resort until the 28th March so at present those athletes travelling to Disney in theory are still due to go. However, in reality it is likely that this period will be extended or travel to France will be restricted and insurance will pay out. At the moment it is advised that we wait for further developments so that our insurance will be triggered. Should we cancel now money will not be returned in full and insurance will not cover the cost. Should any major decisions need to be made parents will be invited to contribute to the group response.
