Little R’s and Juniors

Roundwood Juniors started in 2006 for girls aged 8 years or older and has grown from strength to strength. In response to a high demand for places, RNC split the junior section in half to cater for more players. Our new section is mainly for the younger players aged under 12 and is called Little Rs.

For both Little Rs and Juniors, players are grouped according to ability rather than age but as a general guideline Little Rs is for girls in years 3, 4, 5 & 6 and Juniors for years 6, 7, 8 & 9.

Training

All coaching staff for Little Rs and Juniors have either a Level 1 or Level 2 netball coaching qualification.

Winter training (September to mid May) is on a Thursday night at Croydon High School.

Little Rs: 5.30-6.30pm in the sports hall.
Juniors: 6-7pm. Training starts on the outside courts before moving into the sports hall at 6.30pm.
