Netball NI are planning to host a series of online training sessions – with a focus on ‘Preparing for Trials’. The beauty of these sessions is that anyone can sign up and be involved from anywhere in Northern Ireland.😁 The sessions will focus on footwork, ball handling and fitness, with some time for questions and chat.
It will be open to all Junior members of Netball NI affiliated schools or clubs aged 11-19 and will start 25th January.
Purpose: Work on netball skills that can be done individually at home to reinforce basics, provide fitness and progress performance so netballers are better prepared to hit the court once we can resume pathway activity in the coming months.
Netball NI want to help and inspire netballers to continue training in preparation for trials, working on individual performance and help set good habits of a performance athlete.
What is it? The Netball NI Performance coaches will host a 4 week online training programme for any Netball NI member (school or club) interested in trying out for a Performance Squad in the future (eg an Academy, U17, U19 or U21 squad).
Netball NI want netballers to sign up for a 1 hour session every week over the 4 week period to help to shake off some netball rust, focus on getting the fundamentals of footwork, balance and ball handling up to speed, and work on netball fitness.
Please note these sessions will start on Monday 25 January (not 18th as previously hoped) and will run for 4 weeks.
There are 2 sessions each week, on a Monday and Tuesday night from 7-8pm and netballers are invited to sign up to one or both sessions.
Monday sessions will be most suited for 11-14 year olds, and the Tuesday sessions for 15-19 year olds however both sessions will be beneficial to all. The sessions will be led by some of our Pathway Coaches – and a massive thank you to them for the time and effort they have put in to help this take shape. A big thank you also to the Emerging Warrior athletes who will be demonstrating the movements and assisting with the sessions – this is an excellent opportunity for aspiring future internationals to see and train alongside some of our elite athletes. Full details around the sessions can be found on the Netball NI website and you can register directly via the Sportlomo Event Portal
Please do take advantage of this 🙂
