Netball at Clifton College Preparatory School aims to provide young netballers with every opportunity to develop their skills, reach their full potential, and enjoy their participation in the sport.
Netball is the major sport for girls in the Lent term. Girls follow a progressive balanced programme of training and competition throughout their time at the Preparatory School. This programme respects the girl’s natural stages of physical, mental and emotional development, and its key aim is to increase the likelihood that players of all abilities will remain active throughout their lifetimes. Three afternoons a week are set aside for the development of core netball skills, tactical knowledge and games awareness, alongside promoting positive attitudes which value respect, commitment, determination and teamwork.
The fixture list is extensive; where we aim to play at the highest level whilst fielding as many teams as possible, providing every girl with the opportunity to compete and represent the school regardless of their level. Often with great success, we regularly compete in tournaments at a local, regional and national level.
We are very fortunate and have excellent netball facilities which, boasts three indoor courts and nine outdoor courts.
Each netball team has its own member of staff as coach and mentor throughout the season. We have a number of very experienced and specialist netball coaches who are supported by enthusiastic, experienced members of staff.
With an excellent staff-to-pupil ratio, children are provided with the perfect opportunity to flourish and fulfil their true potential.
