Crosskeys Netball Tournament Sunday 29th April Mark Hall Sportcentre

Crosskeys U11s Netball Squad April 2018

My first Tournament with the U11s – a bit of an up-and-downer. My daughter once said to me that playing netball for some length of time was like winning at life. Today’s experience gave me some insight into what she meant!
The first Match we drew 3-3 in fair style and, allowing for us to get used to 2 halves of 4 minutes, we seemed set to do ok. The 7th and last match we won in blistering style, with the squad really switching on and doing consistently in that match a lot of basic play: good passing — made possible by good movement away and driving into the pass, that really pleases the coaches and entertains our parents and supporters. Also, the interplay between Gracie and Rhiana in and out of the circle as twin GAs paid off. It’s so good to see that they can all play that well and coupled with the determination in this squad, bodes well for the future.
I think it’s true to say that in our group of 7 only one team outclassed us and the squad picked themselves up from this defeat to turn in an astonishing performance in the last match. And drawing and losing other games was our not coming good with the basics, rather than the opposition outplaying us.
Final Results Won 2, Drew 2, lost 3
Coaches POM: Kacey.
Squad: Kacey(Capt), Juliet, Darcey, Becky, Hannah, Gracie(Vice-capt), Rhiana, Ruby, Lily.
Thanks to Louise and Joan for taking outside training sessions in between matches to try to ground some of the ideas of good play. And to the parents for their good-hearted support. And finally a big thank you to the organising committee for putting on such a successful and enjoyable tournament.
