Altrincham Junior Netball Club is a thriving local netball club which has grown significantly since its establishment in 2015. Playing in both competitive leagues and local tournaments it focuses on both participation and performance in all age groups.
The development plan focusing on participation for the first 4 years of the club has been met by managing to secure over 200 girls training and playing matches on a weekly basis. From 2020 onwards we are committed to maintaining participation whilst developing a competitive performance tier; challenging our current and new players to compete with the best in Cheshire and beyond.
We are based in Altrincham, currently training at Altrincham Leisure Centre, Wellington High School and Lymm High School.
All of our coaches are qualified and affiliated with England Netball, with all of them also involved in coaching at adult clubs; schools, colleges and /or universities. Our Head Coach is currently also part of the coaching team for Manchester Thunder Performance Pathway. We are constantly looking at expanding our coaching abilities and have and will offer assistance to parents and players who wish to gain coaching or umpiring qualifications.
In addition to playing in local leagues (Warrington Ball Hall League) our teams enter local tournaments, the Cheshire County League and will work towards qualifying for regional competition. Players from the club have been selected for Cheshire County Netball and to join the Manchester Thunder Performance Pathway.
Our focus is on the development of our young athletes to afford them the best opportunity of achieving their true potential within the sport. We are also conscious of the benefits sport offers girls of all sporting abilities and value the importance of maintaining a sporting interest at whatever level of netball you wish to participate in.
Outside playing netball we support our girls in their Duke of Edinburgh awards with umpiring training and coaching training in the hope they take this development further in their netball career.
