Netball

 

A popular, core sport for girls

Netball is very popular at all levels and has seen some recent success at the elite level. This is a core sport for girls in the Lent term and produces 16 teams ranging from an U14E VII to the 1st VII. All girls have the opportunity to train for and play in fixtures every Saturday as well as some mid-week events.

SPARK NETBALL COURSE

Led by Lisa Prisa (Ex-England netballer and Superleague player/coach) and Sue Ivemy (England netball accredited coach and umpire), we are now offering netball courses over the February half term for 10 to 12 year old boys and girls.

The camps will be built around the modern coaching method of ‘Gamesense’ with related games used to teach age appropriate netball tactics in key game situations. Skills will also be improved within the game. Each player will receive five star training, a T-shirt, lunch and the potential to win some prizes; and make friends in the process.

The A teams at each age group enter the Sussex Cup (SISNA) as well as the appropriate national knockout competitions which begin in the Michaelmas term. Winter training sessions on the premier outdoor courts and in the new sports hall run throughout the Michaelmas term with coaching from Lisa Price, director of netball and ex-England international.

Adult league

A strong link has been developed with the Eastbourne adult league which plays every Thursday evening. The College has two teams currently involved: a senior team plays in the top league (having won every league since it entered three years ago), and a junior team who are top of their league. This allows girls who enjoy their netball to access more of the sport throughout the year by taking part in the winter and summer leagues.
