Welcome to the Official Website of West Yorkshire Netball
Welcome to the February update from West Yorkshire.
The player training sessions took place on the 12th January these were taster training sessions run by our first class coaching team Jo Walker, Kylie Paynter, Kate Lightfoot and Tanya Bruning.
We ran two types of training that consisted of two sessions at each of our nominated venues looking at Shooting and Attack and Defence and based on feedback from those who attend these were a fantastic success. We did however get feedback on our communication of these events as this was considered poor and not very well communicated which I am looking to address over the next couple of months.
We will be repeating the sessions throughout the year at different venues and the next planned sessions will take place on the 11th and 18th April these will be held at Huddersfield University the timings have to be agreed, but we are looking at sessions starting 6.45pm and 8.15pm. These events are targeted at our membership and offer ‘Player training sessions’ with highly skilled and qualified coaches and will be open to all West Yorkshire affiliated members (first come first served basis).
On other news, you will no doubt have seen the recent announcement from Sport England earlier this week in their new cycle of funding. England Netball have been awarded £16.9 million over the next four years and are pleased that Sport England recognised the work and progress that has been made over the last funding cycle and have accepted plans moving forward to continue the progress that is being made for women’s sport.
See below quote from EN CEO, Joanna Adams:
"England Netball is extremely pleased that Sport England has recognised the work and progress that has been made over the last funding cycle and continue to offer such valuable support to our strategy.
"Sport England`s investment in netball will allow us to continue to develop new and exciting initiatives and has also reinforced the importance of maximising the funding model and growing commercial income.
"We remain committed to providing a first-class service to our current membership, to growing the popularity and exposure of the sport and to delivering an effective and progressive infrastructure.”
This is great news and with the support of the Netball family, England Netball are confident that the sport will continue to prosper and that netball will remain in the strong position it finds itself in today.
