Netballers learn from the champions
19 January 2018
On Wednesday 10 January, a group of EHS netballers who have also been selected to represent Birmingham County were invited to the Wasps Netball Community Day. The girls, students in Years 7-9, were very excited to meet some of their favourite players from the Wasps team who are the reigning Superleague champions.
The girls rotated around a number of different activity stations, each focusing on a skill or movement pattern which would help improve their netball performance. A firm favourite was learning about injury prevention movements which can be completed at home with the purpose of improving landings and developing core strength. Other stations included fast footwork, developing co-ordination and even a photo opportunity with the Superleague trophy!
The girls had a fantastic day and we look forward to working closely with Wasps Netball in the future. Forthcoming events include in-school coaching sessions for our teams and going to watch one of the Superleague games!
