Our Netball Programme

Netball is played across both the Michaelmas (Autumn) and Lent (Spring) terms at RGS, alongside Hockey for girls.

some people want it to happen, some people wish it to happen and we make it happen.

Our Netball Philosophy

  • Provide and promote opportunities for all pupils, and facilitate player development in a safe and fun environment.
  • Create and implement an environment where everybody will learn, be accountable and work hard at all times.
  • Actively support and facilitate personal and team goals.
  • Encouraging participation and inclusivity within all our Schools.

Whether it is at a recreational or performance level, we promote students of all abilities to experience and enjoy Netball by encouraging all girls to participate during Games, lessons and Co-curricular activities. RGS Worcester fields numerous Netball teams, so there are plenty of opportunities for players to compete.

From Wrekin to Wanganui, from Adelaide to Aldershot, RGS Worcester have made their mark in Netball. RGS Worcester frequently features at the West Midlands Schools Competitions, as well as National School events across a variety of age groups. We currently play in both the Independent Schools Netball Cup and Sisters in Sport Cup and reached the National Finals at Under 18 and Under 14 last year.

Outside of School, we encourage pupils to continue their Netball through supporting links between clubs, leagues and Super league franchises so that pupils can participate in Netball in a community setting.

Developing Performance

We identify and develop performance athletes who have the potential to succeed by progressing them into our Athlete Development Programme (ADP) through 1-1 mentoring, strength and conditioning sessions, video analysis and individualised plans whilst helping balancing training, academics and potential clashes In their schedules.

At present, we have a number of pupils representing at County level and franchise pathways, Severn stars U14 Future stars, Nova, Performance Development Pathway (PDP) and U17’s along with links to central Warriors U17 and U19 programmes. RGS Worcester also has strong links with local Netball clubs in the area with a large number of our pupils attached to clubs.

Whether you aspire to be an international player or have never played netball before we pride ourselves in finding a place for everyone.
