Welcome to the Official Website of West Yorkshire Netball
A warm welcome to the West Yorkshire Netball website.
Lots of exciting news this month. I am sure everyone is watching with interest the England v Jamaica international series following our defeat earlier this week (49-66) for those fortunate to see the match it was an impressive display from the visiting Sunshine Girls who used their physicality and athleticism to condone England to a heavy loss. All is not lost England have the chance to avenge defeat in the second fixture of the three match Series in Manchester on Friday evening.
Looking inwardly we have some great news around coaching. The Yorkshire Netball Coaching Conference is taking place in Sheffield (EIS) on Saturday the 7th January ’17 and West Yorkshire County Netball are looking to fund this via a bursary application to the value of £50. The application is available on the website and all requests must be submitted by 7th December following which a decision will be made and successful applicants notified. Please note the closing date for applying for the conference is the 9th December.
The conference is targeted specifically at netball coaches wishing to broaden their experience and expertise, through dedicated and specialist workshops, along with opportunities to ask all the coaching questions you have needed answers to. The conference will also include key note speakers such as Melissa Hyndman and Elizabeth Broomhead. It you require any further information relating to this offer please contact our NDO Helena Russo email@example.com Helena will be able to assist you with the application for funding.
Continuing on our coaching theme, the county is looking to set up as a pilot 2 coaching sessions to be held on the 12th January ’17. These sessions will be opened up to all our affiliated membership, however, it will be on a first come first served basis. The plan is to hold 2 sessions at each venue 6.30pm – 8pm & 8pm – 9.30pm (venue’s to be confirmed) and each session will accommodate 20 people, this pilot will be funded by the county.
The focus will be on defence and shooting. We will host a defence and court play session which will be run by ex-Yorkshire Jets star Kate Lightfoot, supported by Tanya Bruning who has recently joined the county league from New Zealand. The shooting and attack court play session will be run by former England International Jo Walker and former Wales International Kylie Paynter
Watch this space for the opening date when you will be able to register your interest.
Maintaining the coaching theme, phase 2 of the coaching bursary is now available, and again if you are interested and would like more information please contact Helena Russo, this is open to all affiliated members for all aspects of coaching whether this is UKCC L1 or UKCC L2.
Finally, a reminder that the ‘Sharp Shooting’ workshop is taking place on Tuesday 6th December at Brigshaw high school. This is once again being run by Joan Young and follows the successful ‘On the Move’ session held earlier this month.
