Hawks Netball Club Senior training is on a Wednesday evening at St Ives Outdoor Centre from 7.30-9.00pm. A coaches clinic will run from 7.00-7.30pm to focus on specific elements for both coaches and players, should any members want to come along to work on their personal skills or shooting practice before Club training starts at 7.30pm.
Training is run by certified coaches and combines elements of fitness with specific netball-related skills and drills. We have occasional guest coaches including a wonderful Solo Sessions ran by Sasha Corbin during the 2018-2019 season. We are also are looking to develop further coaches and umpires within the club with mentoring and support available for those members looking to get more involved.
Matches are an integral part of each training session with regular match play evenings and coached match play to provide additional opportunities to develop whole court and team strategies. Competitive matches are played on weekends during the winter season and weekday evenings during summer season.
Winter league is the most competitive season, we have 3 teams playing in Division 4, Division 2 and Premiere league. Players are named to a team at the start of the season but occasionally will be asked to ‘play-up’ to help cover holidays and injuries.
Summer leagues is more friendly in nature, with teams being placed in groups depending on their winter league results. We entered 2 teams for 2018-2019 and a finished a close 2nd in Division A and winners of Division D. Which with many new players was a fantastic result.
League, club and mixed tournaments are played throughout the year, and along with Summer League are a great opportunity to play against different teams and with different team mates, to build on skills, fitness….and generally have a lot of fun.
