At the beginning of the week, our senior netball girls visited Loughborough University to take part in an intensive pre-competition training day.
The session was hosted by netball super league team, Loughborough Lightning, and our netball team were able to utilise the world-class facilities and expert coaching from current Lightning and England player Rebekah Airey.
The day consisted of a gym familiarisation session with Worksop’s own Strength and Conditioning coach George King in the phenomenal surroundings of the Powerbase - competition was created in the session with a team rowing challenge.
This was followed by a two-hour court skills session supervised by Rebekah Airey. The key messages of the session were simple skills done well.....repeatedly.
After lunch, the team were exposed to life as a Lightning player when they were shown statistics and video analysis of a recent Loughborough Lightning game.
Sports Performance Director, Chris Plume said:
“The day finished with a tour of university facilities led by Lightning Programme Manager, Tara St Claire, who we’d love to thank for organising the visit.”
