Aims of the project
A partnership to support the development of netball at Felsted, a core sport at Felsted for girls.
Background and goals
Felsted were looking for netball expertise to support Felsted's provision for talented sportign girls. A Mavericks player had been to provide coaching and this started the discussions to formalise a school partnership.
Our Head of Netball, Lucy Barratt, works closely with Mavericks Netball to ensure we tap in to their expertise and provide opportunities for our children to see professionals in action. The partnership began in 2016 and will be reviewed every two years.
We have already seen some Felsted girls go on to play for a superleague club whilst at Felsted.
All girls from the age of approx 11 years will benefit from the professional coaching provided by Mavericks Netball. Members of the local community can also access holiday clubs run by Mavericks Netball.
Frequency and duration
The partnership runs mainly during term time in the netball season.
