Training

Thunderbirds Netball Club is fortunate to have established excellent links with 

  • Stratford Girls Grammar School (SGGS) and
  • The Croft Preparatory School
  •  

which enables us to train on fantastic new Sports Halls in the winter months and outdoor courts during the summer.

 

Girls are allocated to specific training sessions, according to age and ability, thus enabling teams to bond, develop and improve together. Very special consideration is given to this by our coaches and on occasion it may be in a player's best interest to change sessions. Should this ever pose a problem, do not hesitate to contact our Head coach or Club Manager.  

 

   Seniors/ 'Back to Netball' ladies play on Monday 7.20 to 9.20pm 

 

   Regular attendance at training is vital for match selection.

Training times (during school term time only) are as follows:

Monday          5.30-6.30 / 6.30-8.00/ 8.00-9.20 @ SGGS

Tuesday         4.00-5.10 @ The Croft
                       5.30-7.20 / 7.20-9.20 @ SGGS 
Wednesday   5.30-7.20 / 7.20-9.20 @ SGGS

Thursday       5.30-7.20 / 7.20-9.20 @ SGGS

 

The club politely requests that school aged girls are dropped off and collected promptly. For safeguarding reasons, a register will be kept of attendance. 

 

Led by our Level 2 Head Coach, Kelly McCormack (right) and Level 2 coach Molly Salmons, these sessions are aimed at girls who want to play competitively, focusing on skills, tactics and match play.

 

Girls are carefully assessed and placed in groups best suited to their age, ability and level of confidence. Great thought also goes into building and developing teams.

Thunderbirds' Head Coach, Kelly McCormack, received this year’s award for Coach/ PE Teacher at the Stratford District Sports Award 2019.

She was recognised for her determination to get girls playing competitive netball. As well as being a driving force behind the club’s extraordinary expansion, Thunderbirds actively engages all ages and abilities in matches and tournaments. 

Kelly was also credited for the support she gives girls on the England Netball Pathway.
