I hope you have all had an enjoyable summer. Just a reminder...tomorrow is our first netball session back, meeting at St Francis 7.30-9pm. I look forward to seeing you all there. As well as welcoming some new faces, Trudie our new coach will be joining us from tomorrow.
Wednesday 21st August will be a pre-season session, a good chance to get back into it, catch up and welcome new faces.
This year Pewsey Netball will be running Squad Selection for the first time.
We will have 2 squad selection dates, 28th August and 4th September. An external coach has been invited to assist with this process. She will advise on who she believes is suited to Division 1 play, Division 4 play and who needs a bit more time before playing competitively. The sessions will be informal and everyone will get the chance to play. Prior to the sessions everyone will be given the opportunity to put themselves forward for 2 or 3 preferred positions.
Players will be spoken to individually once a decision has been made. If someone is suited to Division 1 then they will have the option to play in Division 1, Division 4 or they may choose not to play competitively. If someone is suited to Division 4 they will have the option to play in Division 4 or they may choose not to play competitively. Those players who it is felt are not quite ready for Division 4 will be given the opportunity to develop further through training and organised friendly matches.
Please do attend both sessions if possible. If you are unable to attend either of the dates these players will be ‘squad selected’ on an individual basis at a further training session. They will definitely still be considered.
If you are new to Pewsey Netball Club please get in touch, either via email or the contact form. Let us know which dates you can attend and your preferred positions if you know! Any questions at all please get in touch. I really want to stress this isn’t something to worry about.
