The Tonypandy Netball Academy has been running since September 2011.
Our Junior Academy (KS3) currently trains once a week after school. All the girls who are attending are making excellent progress and are making new friends from different classes. Our Year 7 team has just participated in a local tournament and finished in 3rd position. Well done to all who took part! We also have matches against other schools in the area too so if any girls are interested in playing for the Junior Academy please come along on Thursdays 3pm-4pm.
Our Senior Academy currently trains on Tuesday and Thursday lunchtimes and after school on a Tuesday. Every week the Senior Squad have been training hard to secure a place in the A and B team, to play in the Rhondda Schools Netball League where we are competing against five other schools from within the area. So far, we have played Treorchy, Tonyrefail, Ferndale as well as a head to head match against each other!
The Academy Captain is Paige Martin and our Vice Captain is Chelsey Thomas. All girls are working hard during training to improve as individual players as well as working as a squad to win games. There has been a massive improvement over the last two months from when we initially met to start up the academy in July. Our A team are currently 4th in the league out of 10 teams.
Keep up the hard work girls and you will reap the rewards!!
