Fast5 comes to Netball Youth Camp - Nottinghamshire
In it’s 4th Year Nottinghamshire saw the annual Netball Youth Camp take place at Trent College from 26th – 28th July. 34 girls from 11-16 years attended an actioned packed three days of fun, skills and a variety of activities themed with the ‘Fast 5’ version of the game.
Throughout the 3 days, the girls took part in a variety of shooting, defending and attacking sessions as well as dodging the rain with activities such as designing their own ‘Fast 5’ power play card and positional change paddles. The week was finished off with a visit from England Netball Star ‘Chelsea Pitman’ who took part in a question & answer session and shared her netball experiences including a talk on nutrition. Chelsea was also on hand to give 1:1 shooting tips and liked the ‘netball rounders’ game to which she said she would be using it when she went back to Australia.
Julian Taylor Netball Development Officer for Nottinghamshire / Derbyshire said ‘ It was a great three days with fun and skills, the theme gave them a taste of our forthcoming ‘Fast 5 Allstars’ which takes place in September.
