The intensive netball programme, designed in collaboration with Netu, provides an insight in to training like an elite netballer and is balanced with the opportunity to socialise and meet other like-minded ballers.
Your week will begin on the Sunday evening with an introduction from the Head Coach and Pastoral Team alongside your fellow campers. The team will prepare you for the week ahead and engage in some icebreakers during a social BBQ. Following the meal, our staff team will help you to settle in to your accommodation.
During the first day of coaching, we will analyse your current skill level in order to adapt the curriculum to best develop you during the programme. Throughout the remainder of the week you will take part in 1-on-1 coaching sessions, small group sessions and team gameplay sessions as well as a variety of challenges.
To keep you on your toes during the week, you will take part in a variety of Challenges designed by Netu and Crazy Catch.
During the week, all participants will learn valuable practical skills for both on and off the pitch, inlcuding a Umpiring L1 qualificaion. We give campers the opportunity to develop their independence and social skills, perfect for their personal development.
After dinner, we will provide a fun filled evening led by our pastoral staff, creating a relaxing and firendly atmosphere to relax with your fellow campers. We will ask you to check in to your rooms by 9pm, lights out between 9.30pm-10.30pm (depending on age).
The finale of the week will be a netball tournament held on the final afternoon, looking to crown the NETBALL FEVER CHAMPIONS!

We will be staying in Crosthwaite house at St Georges School, Harpenden, which ordinarily serves as the boarding house for the term time students at the school. This is close to the netball facilities that we will be using for the course delivery. Rooms will be shared with up to 5 other participants on the course with shared bathroom facilities on each floor. There are plenty of communal areas available as well as a garden area which will be used for some workshop delivery when appropriate. Check out our VENUE PAGE for more info.
The main course content will be delivered on the outdoor netball courts, with the Sports Hall available for extreme weather. St George's School have 3 courts available, plenty of space for a variety of 1-on-1, small group and team coaching.
Our seasonal staff team are put through a rigorous interview and training processes to ensure that we have just the right people for the job. All staff hold an enhanced DBS. Our venue manager will be supported by a team of pastoral and first aid professionals who are equipped to deal with any eventuality on site, as well as support participants with the challenges of being away from home.
