Challengers Netball Club offer the opportunity for young girls to receive netball coaching and active participation in a team sport. With our training venue at Tewkesbury High School for U13′s and below and Bentham Country Club for U14’s and U16 Squad, we attract players from across the North of Gloucestershire and South of Worcestershire. We have the Rockettes, Sparklers, Fireworks and Meteors sessions, depending on your age.
This netball coaching is open to children of ALL abilities, encouraging them to achieve a higher level of fitness and skill, improve social skills and bring players of a diverse range of backgrounds together. We have had our juniors in the Club since 1990, and have formed strong links with 2 local High/Middle Schools. With the training and support provided by Challengers Netball Club we are now delivering the Youth Umpire Award. We also work with the cluster of local Primary Schools and have developed a High 5 Netball Academy.
Our Commitment to Juniors
All of our coaches and volunteers are encouraged to work to high standards and adopt recognised best practise. They follow safety guidelines and good ethical conduct. All coaches are first Aid trained, and are DBS checked, and have also completed an equity in coaching course. We currently have sport England Clubmark and hold a SILVER CAPS award from England Netball.
