Royal Russell has a reputable and well established netball programme. Our mission at Royal Russell is to aid girls to become the ‘best athlete they can be’. Being a dedicated and motivated towards our netball programme will help towards achieving this goal.
Our aim is not only to coach the core skills, depending on the age and experience of all our players, but to excel the elite by focusing on a high level of technical and tactical play.
Our carefully designed Long Term Athlete development model sees players typically receive around fifteen hours of coaching per week from highly qualified and experienced coaches. Resources include the use of handbooks, video analysis of matches and evaluation of performance related statistics. Alongside team specific court sessions, we also run positional masterclasses, one to one workshops and classroom based sessions for external feedback and tactical understanding. Personal fitness programmes are delivered according to players needs identified by our thorough fitness testing procedure using our state of the art sports science and swimming pool facilities.
We have a strong links with local netball clubs, Superleague teams including Surrey Storm and London Pulse and the national programme pathway.
We have an exceptional standard of facilities including 3 floodlit netball courts and 3 training netball courts. We also have use of an indoor court in our large Sports Hall with an inside training-warm up area.
We expect all our players to leave Royal Russell having reached the very limit of their potential and to pursue lifelong participation in netball and sport.
