The two courses, which will provide advice on techniques, skills and tactics from qualified, checked coaches, begin running on Wednesday 25th February at Perins Community Sports College in Alresford.

U11’s (School Years 5 & 6) 5 – 6pm Outside Netball Courts

The courses cost £20, the equivalent of £1 per week, or £5 equivalent to 25p per week for children of parents who are receiving Income Support, Job Seekers Allowance, Housing Benefit or Council Tax Benefit. All players need to register in advance, as spaces are limited.
