Severn Stars Inspires New Generation of Netball Players

Budding young netballers will have the chance to be coached by professional players from Severn Stars netball club at an upcoming netball camp.

The club is running a Severn Stars Future Stars Netball Camp at the University of Worcester Arena on Sunday, January 7, with subsequent camps at the University of Worcester, on May 27, and at the University of Gloucestershire, on February 12 and April 6.

The camps are run by Severn Stars coaching staff along with Superleague players for the Stars, a joint franchise between the University of Worcester and the University of Gloucestershire.

The camp is aimed at children in school years four to nine (seven to 14-year-olds) and runs from 9.30am – 3.30pm. Participants will have sessions on team building skills, ball skills, attacking and movement skills, defence and also match play. No level of ability is required to attend.

Last year’s camp attracted youngsters from Worcestershire, Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and Shropshire.

Louisa-Jayne Walker, Director of Netball at the University of Worcester, said: “We are excited to be offering the Future Stars Netball Camps for the 2018 season after the success of last year’s camps. They are a great opportunity to work with children from the Severn Stars community to improve their netball skills, have fun and also inspire them, through Severn Stars players as role models, to continue in the sport and aspire to maybe one day play for Severn Stars.”
