Croston Netball Junior Division

Croston Netball Junior Division

Rebecca Lyth By Rebecca Lyth

As a club, our vision has always been to offer an opportunity for young girls from a rural location who have few local opportunities, a chance to play a team sport in their own area.

Our club has grown rapidly in the last 5 years, which is a testament to the dedication, ambition and sportsmanship of our committee and our wonderful members. 5 years ago, 6 or 7 ladies met together in effort to get fit. Now, we boast five successful teams. It is at this stage that we want to ensure we can offer this opportunity to young girls in our local area. Our small, rural village presents few opportunities being readily available for young girls. On a national level, chances for girls to take part in sport is far more limited than what is on offer to boys. We want to form a Junior Division that will allow young girls a chance to build confidence, socialise in a welcoming environment and nurture their mental and physical wellbeing. We want to offer opportunities in a field that is extremely limited. Our division will be inclusive of all abilities, and will encourage young girls to increase their fitness in a time when childhood obesity is at an all time high.

What we'll deliver:

  • Training for members wishing to serve as coaches in the Junior Division
  • Umpiring courses to promote a high standard of development for the Junior Division
  • First Aid courses to ensure the health and safety of all young members.
  • Every child will receive netball kit, relieving any financial pressure on families wanting to participate.
  • Buying high quality training equipment (bibs, balls, netball posts etc.)
  • Funding training facilities to subsidise training for young girls, to ensure participation is available for all.

Why it's a great idea:

Creating a successful Junior Division will: - Offer sporting opportunities in a location that has limited facilities and lacks chances for young girls to get involved with sports. - Raise the profile of women's sport (a national incentive!) - Provide a platform for young girls to build confidence and nurture relationships through team sport and socials - Give young girls a regular place to build their fitness, which is a national priority with childhood obesity being at an all time high.

Steps to get it done:

  • Coaching qualifications for current members to provide high quality training to juniors
  • Buying kit and sports equipment
  • First aid courses to ensure high quality safety throughout junior participation
