Mini’s, Little R’s and Juniors.

Roundwood Juniors started in 2006 for girls aged 8 years or older and has grown from strength to strength. Due to a high demand for places, in September 2018, RNC split the juniors in half to create a new section, Little R’s, that is mainly for younger players aged between 8 and 12 years of age.

 And an exciting new development – as of June 2021 RNC is proud to add our Minissection for players aged 5-7. Minis is aimed at developing self-confidence, sporting competence, health and fitness all whilst having fun and is line with England Netball’s Bee Netball programme.

We hope that players joining these sections will progress through the club into our senior teams.

For both Little R’s 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.  Minis is based on age and is for girls in Reception through to year 2.


All coaching staff are Level 2 netball qualified.  

Winter training (September 2020 to mid June 2021)

is on Thursday night; 5.30pm to 6.20pm for Little R’s and from 6.30pm to 7.20pm for Juniors on the outside courts at Croydon High School. 

 Summer training (24 June 2021 to end of August 2021). Little R’s and Junior’s training will be moving to Coombe Wood School. Our Minis section will start on 30 June 2021.  Minis will train indoors at Coombe Wood School on Wednesdays from 5pm to 6pm. Little R’s will train indoors on Thursdays from 5pm to 6pm.  As a result of the move to Coombe Wood School, an additional Junior section has been created. Junior training is either indoors on Wednesday (6pm-7pm) or Thursday (6pm-7pm).  Your day of training will be decided by our coaching staff.

From June 2021, new membership enquiries will be invited to a free taster session.
