Volunteer Planning Day
Volunteers from across all five counties were invited to a regional planning day to discuss the future of netball in the Region. The day was organised by Sue Connor – Vice Chair of East Midlands Netball, alongside volunteers from the regional board and Technical Support groups.
The aim of the day was to identify where the region is currently with regards developing netball in coaching, officiating, performance as well as putting forward ideas and suggestions for the next four years moving forward with England Netballs vision.
Thank you to everyone who turned up on the day, and to the volunteers who organised the event, lots of valuable feedback and ideas which will continue to move the region forward in the right direction.
