Preseason lacrosse and netball training

Preseason lacrosse and netball training

We are writing to invite your daughter to preseason lacrosse and netball training which will take place between Tuesday 31 August and Thursday 2 September. These are important sessions designed to reacquaint students with lacrosse and netball after the lengthy summer break. If your daughter is keen to play lacrosse and/or netball next season and represent the School in a competitive setting we would advise that they attend preseason training, as this will be an ideal opportunity for students to prepare for the new season. All current sport governing body Covid protocols will be in place for the entire duration of the preseason training to ensure students are as safe as possible.

For the senior lacrosse and netball squads and the U16 netball squad, preseason training will consist of skill sessions, game play and fitness testing. In addition, there will be a series of presentations covering the role of strength and conditioning, sport psychology and nutrition.

All other year groups will focus on strength and conditioning, refreshing skills and building upon these skills under game-like conditions. There will be both netball and lacrosse sessions scheduled for students currently in Year 6 moving into Year 7, together with new students who will be attending the School in September.

Each year group will have its own timetabled session which is outlined below. Students will need the following for all activities:

  • lacrosse equipment (mouth guard, lacrosse stick and goggles)
  • food
  • water
  • sun cream
  • school PE kit (including appropriate footwear for both lacrosse and netball)
  • personal hand sanitiser

If you would like your daughter to attend any of the sessions applicable, please complete the electronic response form by 4pm on Friday 9 July.
