Who runs the world? Girls!
The first of several special training session got underway last Saturday. Thanks to the money received from the Wembley National Stadium Trust. England Touch crossed paths with London Netball Academy at Preston Manor High School in Brent.
Our main aims on Saturday were to:
- Introduce Touch to the local community;
- Improve general skill level; and
- Identify high level athletes for our performance pathways.
As we entered a very spacious sports hall we was greeted by 30 focused and determined participants. The day started with a turbo Touch tournament, then onto ball handling and some intense attacking and evasion work. It finished with a turbo touch finalé where each team’s progression throughout the morning became evident.
A massive thank you to all the coaches, helpers and parents for making it such a great day. The session was led by School Liaisons Daryl Owens and Matthew Alan Thomas.
An email has gone out to all the parents of the players identified and will forward their contacts to the Junior Lead Ben Powell.
A very impressive start to the scheme. Our second session will be on Sunday 21st February 2016 at Kilburn Cosmos RUFC.
