For some time now we’ve been talking about doing a well being session for our teens aged between 11 and 17. Statistics show its during this age group that young people stop playing sport and surprisingly it’s come down to self confidence. We’ve tried to build a culture within the club where playing netball is a safe place from judging, bullying and all those other things that young people encounter.
With the grant we could take our work to the next level and have the players connecting and supporting each other. We would do this at a one night camp which they love and something our club hasn’t done for a long time. We would run sessions around health (related to sport such as correctly warming up) and then some well being sessions with team bonding. The summer season starts in October and runs until March. We would look at doing this session during the summer season which is our more competitive season.
