Welcome to the Official Website of West Yorkshire Netball
A warm welcome to the West Yorkshire Netball website.
As we begin our new season I would like to take this opportunity to wish our junior and senior clubs and teams every success for 2016-17.
This weekend sees Silcoates School host to our national school competition. We have our U16 and U19 teams playing 9am-1pm and U14 1pm-4pm. This is a great opportunity to see our young talent in action so please do go along and support our youngsters if you get the chance.
We have had a busy summer in West Yorkshire, netball doesn’t stand still; Pam Hirlam (County Umpiring Secretary) has been working hard organising the next C Award umpires course, this took place on 2nd October and we had a fantastic attendance. In addition to the course Pam has also organised testing during the summer months, we had six C Award passes which is great news for our county association.
As you are aware the bursary pilot was launched last season for coaching, we have provided financial support for five colleagues and are now looking to launch phase 2 – watch this space!
More news, England Netball is 90 years old this year (2016). Check out the website http://www.ournetballhistory.org.uk/ which celebrates the history of netball at all levels from its early beginnings to the present day.
A warm welcome this season to our NDO (Netball Development Officer) Helena Russo. Helena works for England Netball and is looking to grow netball in any way that she can. Helena works in partnership with West Yorkshire County Netball Association, delivering programmes such as the well-loved Back to Netball, pay and play Netball Now sessions and more recently, Walking Netball.
Helena works closely with schools, colleges, universities clubs, volunteers and other delivery partners across West Yorkshire. If you have any queries about setting up netball sessions, finding the best netball session or club near you and anything else relating to the world of West Yorkshire netball, please get in touch! email@example.com, you can also follow Helena on Facebook at @wynetball or Twitter @NDOWestYorks
