Roundwood Development Squad started in 2010. It is aimed at girls who are aged between 14-18 years. The session is designed to enable players from our junior section to move up to senior level netball and play among peers rather than the older seniors. Any girl who is aged 14 and over is eligible to compete in the senior leagues.
All members of Development Squad are expected to commit to playing for one of our senior teams upon turning 14. Entry into the senior teams is through our trials which happen in the summer and January.
All coaching staff for Seniors have a Level 2 netball coaching qualification.
Winter training (August to mid May) is on a Wednesday night from 7.30pm to 8.20pm at Croydon High School and then Coombe Wood School from 24th June 2021. We will invite the Development Squad D-E Squads to train on a Wednesday from 7pm to 8pm, and our Development Squad (Year 9-13) on a Thursday from 7pm to 8pm. Your coach will tell you what night you are invited to train.
