Netball Report 2014-15 Season

Truro Prep Netball Report 2014-2015 season

This has proved to be a very busy and purposeful season for the netball squads and teams, with some very high standards of play being demonstrated. We have once more extended the fixture list and have played the following schools across the season; Truro School, Truro High School, Mount Kelly , Archbishop Benson, Polwhele, Mylor Bridge, Bosvigo, Halwyn, Threemilestone, Alverton, Chacewater, Truro High School.

Netball fever has taken a firm hold at the Thursday after school club and there have been between 30 and 40 pupils (both girls and boys) attending; battling it out in skills and game situations. Huge thanks go to Mrs Becconsall and Mrs Newman who have been there to support and deliver new warm – ups and skills.

Fixtures, tournaments and festivals have been busy and in some instances very successful; numerous girls have had the opportunity to play and represent the school. We have played High 5 and full netball, with some great results! Congratulations to all players and I sincerely hope that you will all continue to play in the future!

The years 3 and 4 have spent the year growing in stature with their development of skills and will be a force to be reckoned with next academic year. Their away fixtures this term were sadly postponed, but some of the pupils took part in a festival of netball last term

The year 5 players have improved and become very confident on the court. Only last week they took part in our own invitation high five netball event and won all of their games convincingly. They will all be presented with a certificate of participation

The U11 squads have had a roller-coaster year that has proved to be highly successful. All girls in the year 6 have had the opportunity to represent the school. They were successful winners of games and competitions and the A squad were worthy qualifiers to get to the National Finals held in Brighton at Roedean School. The opposition was tough, but what an amazing feet to get there and play against some top netball schools in the country! In addition to this, the A and B squads travelled to the county U11 Tournament hosted by Truro High School. The A team were winners and the B team a very creditable 4th.
