The RGS Netball philosophy is that all players are provided with opportunities to fulfil their potential. It is based on the principles of providing an environment in which participation, inclusiveness, player development and enjoyment are seen as paramount to our success. Whether it is at a recreational or team level, we promote students of all abilities to experience and enjoy Netball.
RGS fields nineteen Netball teams, so there are plenty of opportunities for players to compete against school, club, county and regional sides. For two consecutive years, RGS has been Worcester City Champions in the Under 12, 13 and Under 16 age groups, Worcestershire County Netball Champions in both the Under 16 and Under 19 categories and Superball Champions.
Netball staff have a wealth of experience together with coaching and umpiring qualifications. We encourage all pupils to take part in a range of opportunities to develop a range of skills in Netball including playing, coaching and umpiring. For pupils who want to get involved in officiating, we deliver the Into Officiating Award and for those who want the chance to take the first step on the coaching, officiating or administration Netball ladder, we deliver the Community Sports Leadership Award.
Outside school we encourage pupils to continue their Netball through supporting links between clubs, leagues and school. We also identify and develop performance athletes who have the potential to succeed by progressing them into the England Netball High Performance programme.
Finally, Netball tours are arranged both within the UK and abroad.
