England international coaches young talent
11 August 2011
50 of London and the South East’s most promising young netballers took to the courts at Surrey Sports Park yesterday for a full day of elite coaching from Storm and England star Tamsin Greenway and manager Naomi Taylor.
The intense 6 hour programme had an attacking focus and with arguably the best wing attack in the country at the helm, there was a lot to be learnt! The morning session looked at the girls’ movement and ball handling skills, with the afternoon developing this into more game like situations and culminating in some match play in the afternoon.
It was just the second Elite camp run by the Surrey Storm Franchise and saw a massive increase in numbers from the first camp.
Head coach Tamsin Greenway was pleased with how the day went: “It was great to have as much interest as we did in the camp. The standard of the girls was very impressive and they worked well through what was a full and high intensity day’s programme. It’s great to see girls from across the region and get an idea of where they are at in terms of their individual skills. All of them should go away from today with a number of things they can work on to improve their own game and that is massive for them at this age.”
This success is something Greenway is keen to build on for future camps, “Judging from today, the interest and talent is clearly there and it is important that we harness that in as many ways as possible and offer these young players a range of development opportunities.”
Storm’s next netball camp is being held on Wednesday 17th August at the Surrey Sports Park, and is open to girls aged 8-14yrs. Limited places are still available but selling fast. For more information please contact the Surrey Sports Park or check out the website.
