Performance Netball

for Girls U15 & U16 only (years 10 & 11) : 05 - 08 August 2024

Residential - £599.00 | Day - £349.00

The Performance Netball camp is all about helping the netball girls reach their full potential. Being able to deep dive into each individual’s game and help further develop their already established skillset whether that be technical, tactical or mindset.

Laura and Lauren have both travelled on the junior performance pathway journey and have mountains of knowledge and experience to help guide your children growth.

The camp will be as important off the court as it is on it, and we have a number of workshops to support the court time in order to provide a rich and authentic performance experience. The girls will leave inspired, supported and tired.

As a coach i’m passionate about empowering players to take ownership of their own game. For the last ten years I’ve played in the English Superleague, NZ ANZ Premiership, all whilst playing for England. I know what it takes to make it to the top, and that’s exactly what I like to instil in my players. I’m all about developing physical ability, understanding of the game and helping them find their elite mindset.

Coaching for me, is about making the team and the individuals the best they can be, focussing on encouraging players to reach their maximum potential. Pushing boundaries and exploring new ideas, being creative and coaching through chaos to reap the highest rewards and gain success. My competitive nature and passion for the sport is what drives me and those around me.

The key themes of the week will be:

  • Success under pressure

  • Creating, seeing, reading, and exploiting space in attack

  • Forcing high and wide in defence

  • Learning how to use Performance Analysis to aid performance

  • Positional Sessions for shooters, mid court and defence

  • Developing and implementing their own tactical strategies to problem solve 

  • learning to live the lifestyle of an elite athlete
