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.
Members of the Development Squad who are of a suitable ability to compete in a senior ladies league will be invited to trial for a place in our senior teams. Entry into the senior teams is through our trials which happen in the summer and January.
All coaching staff have a Level 2 netball coaching qualification.
Training (August to mid May) is held at Coombe Wood School. We will invite the Development Squad to train on either a Wednesday, or a Thursday from 7pm to 8pm. This will be dependent on what team you have been selected for. Your coach will inform you which night you are invited to train.
