This season is a very exciting time for The Downs’ juniors as we are growing and expanding our age groups to include under 10’s through to U14 teams.
First training for 2019/20 season will start on Sunday 8th September 2019 at St Johns School, Leatherhead. THE NEW TIME WILL BE FROM 10am-11.30am.
The Downs are placed in a unique position as we offer a full pathway from junior to elite level netball. Training offers an elite foundation for high performance netball. Our highly experienced coaches focus on the development of good habits with a high level good core skills and tactical awareness of the game.
Fitness is an important part of becoming a netballing athlete. We expect players to commit and learn how train for peak physical fitness. We also develop the girls mental strength in order to compete at the highest level and prepare the girls for adult netball.
The Downs provide a pathway to high performance senior netball with teams in the Regional and Premier divisions of the Premier league but also a pathway into our talent development squads.
Talent on it own is nothing without the right attitude and ability to apply oneself. If a young player shows promise and demonstrates that they will commit, work hard, get fit, offer determination and a willingness to be on the court in any position then they will be given opportunities that no other club in Surrey can offer them.
The Downs has become recognised as offering juniors an excellent platform to become the best they can be.
