Sat Nav Details: Aylesbury High School, Walton Road, Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, HP21 7SX
This session is to give you a taster of netball and our league.
🏐All are welcome! After the taster session, you can continue on with our refresher sessions and finally go on to be allocated a team and entered into the league!
👟Some of you who are more experienced and 'match ready' will usually be offered a place in an existing team, if available.
🏐Please arrive 10 mins early so we can go through a few H&S and housekeeping things.
🏐Please bring water and wear comfortable workout clothing and trainers with a good grip. - layers are best so you can remove them as you warm-up
We know it can be daunting coming to something new or after a long time away!
🏐🙃We promise you'll have fun and that there really are many other ladies in exactly the same position as you!
🙃 A rundown of what will happen once you turn up.
We'll check who we have attending
👟We go through a warm-up to get your heart, muscles, and mind in the zone to learn
🧊 Water break
🏐 We go over some simple fundamental ball skills
👟 We then put these into action with some simple practice exercises
🚰 Another rest and water break - you are also allowed to rest whenever you want, so never push yourself and always listen to your body
⛹🏾♀️We'll play friendly games where we will coach while you play, Stopping the game when we need to explain what has happened.
We find this is a great way to learn the rules as you are putting them into action - people forget where they are allowed so it is expected!! You'll have most of it after a few weeks so don’t worry too much!!
Please get in touch if you would like to first come down -even if you just want to watch and see what all the fuss is about! If it helps with your nerves. Please feel free to still register, just in case you turn up and then decide you actually want to play!
We want everyone to enjoy netball and that means keeping us all as safe as possible, therefore there are some deal breakers in terms of being netball ready.
Fingernails MUST be short! NO acrylics, it's for your own safety and everyone else’s ALL Jewellery, earrings, and any piercings should be removed, preferably at home, they are less likely to get lost then. Please see our rules for more information on this.
The only exception to this, Flexiplast inserts which sit flush to the skin on the ear cartilage parts only, you will then need to tape these and wear a headband to cover and protect them. Medical alert flat bracelets and religious/cultural flat jewellery- these will still need to be taped flat to the skin and an additional covering worn.
