masterclasses by England netball

Today was an action packed day. It all started with a very lively warm up at the Netball courts as we did a conga to Disney tunes around the courts. We then split into our school groups working on individual skills with coaches from England Netball. In the skills tests, Lucy and Susie took the top marks, with Rachel and Taizya gaining the top shooting score, Mary winning the core strength plank test and Eloise and Romilly winning the passing challenge. The girls then had sessions on attacking, defending. We then had the chance to quiz Australian netball star Kim Commane, who is signed to the superleague side Team Bath, on what it takes to be a netball professional. We asked lots of questions, mainly about injuries!? But the best question was from Kylie who asked if professional players still make mistakes like footwork. Kim assured us they do, and that it was important to not let this impact your game. A message quickly retweeted by the Team Bath Head Coach!
The afternoon was filled with more Disney and the girls had plenty of time to go on lots of rides and enjoy a meal with their teammates. We returned to our cabins exhausted and with another busy day tomorrow it is pyjamas all round.
