On Wednesday 20th March 2019, Mavericks Netball came into school and provided all KS1 and KS2 classes with a netball workshop. The day consisted of working on various netball skills with each class, looking to develop footwork, various passes and shooting in a fun and engaging way. All the children enjoyed the workshop and many pupils were asking how they could continue to participate in the sport going forward.
Our coach for the day was former England international Becky Trippick, who also played Super League for Mavericks and Storm. As well as providing some excellent coaching throughout the day, Becky, also delivered an inspiring assembly, talking about her career and how she got into netball, as well as other sports. She talked about the importance of determination and perseverance in dealing with set-backs in order to reach her goals.
We thank Mavericks Netball and Becky for a fantastic day and hope this can inspire our pupils to participate in netball, both in and out of school!
