Our U14’s cover a huge range of abilities, from beginners level through to experienced club players. Some of our girls have played for many years and alongside playing for us some are also playing for District Schools, West Yorkshire Pathway & Leeds Rhinos Hubs squads. However some girls are just starting their netball journey having only ever played a bit of netball in school .With this in mind we offer both development & competition training sessions. All girls are initially invited to join our development session for assessment and from there may be selected to join the competition training session. Girls from both training sessions are considered weekly to play in one of our 2 registered U14 teams alongside friendlies run throughout the season to ensure all girls get lots of opportunity for competitive match play.
With girls coming from BBG, Heckmondwike Grammar, Rastrick High, Shelley, St John Fishers and Mirfield Free Grammar we are an all inclusive club with team work and friendship a big part of our ethos.
Our goal for the U14’s is to improve all the players’ abilities and passion for netball through positive coaching and encouragement.
We would like our first team to finish within the top three league places this season, whereas our second teams focus is on the development of netball’s core skill set. Although we will always play to win, with the second team our focus is improving the girls skill’s with a view to them being able to enter the first team at a highly competitive level.
Our U14 development team train every Wednesday 4:30 – 6pm at Batley Sports & Tennis Centre and our competition squad every Wednesday 5:45 – 7:30 at Whitcliffe Mount School, both play Sunday morning matches from Sept – Dec & Jan – April.
