      Junior Netball

      Junior Netball is played throughout the year. We offer after school clubs for Years 3 – 6 and a lunchtime team practice for years 5 and 6. In the Summer Term, when after school netball is replaced by summer sports, the lunchtime practice continues, enabling teams to become ‘match ready’ for the following year. We organise fixtures for all abilities of pupils in Years 4, 5 and 6; and where possible in Year 3 also. Throughout the season we participate in the Local Macclesfield and District Primary Schools’ Netball League and we are proud to have been League 1 winners for the last three years. We enter a number of tournaments over the course of the year. In the Year 2015-2016 we achieved third place in the St Pius V Netball Tournament in October and second place in the AJIS U11 tournament in March.

      We pride ourselves on our strong links with netball clubs outside school and many of our matches have been umpired by coaches from Macclesfield Pink Ladies and Wilmslow Lightning. Our pupils are encouraged to join an external club if they enjoy the sport and want to take it further. Whilst challenging our more able players with a high level of competition and skills development, after school netball is an all-inclusive club which does cater for all abilities of student. Indeed, throughout the netball season there is a strong emphasis on inclusion and enjoyment and a great time is had by both coaches and pupils alike. Our annual House Competition includes all interested players from Year 6, as well as some for Year 5, and we often arrange fixtures for three teams of different abilities in order to include all players who regularly attend practices. Senior school PE staff and highly qualified netball coaches are also involved in both year 5 and 6 games lessons.
