Meet the committee
ADMIN: Erin Young
I have grown up playing Basketball until I moved to Sweden and decided to play a new sport. I have been playing netball a little over 3 years and love the social aspect of the club. My closest friends in Stockholm are from the club and I enjoy meeting all of the new players.
COACH: Sophie BAILEY
Netball is one of my passions. I started playing at the age of 7, and competitively since I was 11. I have represented both county, regional and university teams in England. I am a qualified Level 2 coach with experience of coaching both regional and premiership teams. Here in Stockholm, I coach the Competitive Netball Team.
COACH: Sarah Coats Chandler
I can't imagine life without netball! I've been playing since I was 7 (standard Aussie indoctrination!) and have only had seasons off due to injury and pregnancy. I've played netball in Australia, England, Ireland and now Stockholm. I'm not the best player you've ever seen, but I can hold my own and love the competition. I am a qualified umpire and have coached senior teams for many years - and now I'm delighted to be part of the fab crew at Stockholm Netball Club!
What we are about
The aim of the competitive league is to raise the skill level of our current players and to develop as a club with coaching. The club does take commitment so please take this in mind when signing up as we do not want to have to cancel any practices as they are only once a month. The competitive club is for females only but we would like to play a match or two against an all male team.
We will be playing on Fridays from 6 - 7:30. The first 30 minutes will be warm-up and drills. Anyone is welcome to participate in this portion. Then we will play a game and only players selected for the competitive league will get to play in this portion. Please try to arrive by at least 5:45 so that we can start on time at 6 after removing the tables and chairs.
Teams & Umpires
We will send a bokat out the week before the game. You need to reply before the Friday to be able to play. We will then evenly divide the attending players between two teams. We feel that by not having set teams we can have equal teams each week and mix and match teams on the day if needed. We will ask that all selected players umpire at least one quarter through out the games. This will ensure that it is not the same people each week having to sit off to umpire and it will also build the amount of players that we have that are able to umpire.
