This year we decided to have our Christmas party at Airhop and over 50 girls attended. Everyone had a great time bouncing and jumping and we are pleased to report no major injuries! It seems we picked a very ‘sporty’ evening and shared the time with members from Bristol City Football Club and Bristol Flyers Basketball team! The girls clearly worked up a hunger and managed to demolish all 22 pizzas that we ordered!Hope you all have a great Christmas break and see you in 2019
Our U12’s group is now in its second year and to celebrate we have entered a team into Avon League! The girls are pictured here at the Seeding Tournament which placed them into Division 3. The girls are enjoying experiencing what competitive playing is all about! They’ve had a couple of very close matches so far with only one goal in it! Well done girls! The group in once again being sponsored by Haywards Chauffeurs in Bristol – thanks to Steve and his team.
Our annual Awards and Social Evening was held on Saturday 30th June in Emersons Green Village hall. It was good to see so many people attending and a massive well done to all those who received awards. Next year we are planning on doing something a little bit different, so watch this space and keep the date free – Saturday 22nd June 2019.
Congratulations to Erin Peshkin who played in our U14A team last season. Erin won ‘Most Nominated Player’ award for U14’s Division 1 in Avon league and was presented with her award at the Avon AGM in May.
What a great season we had! With 50 girls at the main club, we entered 2 x U16 teams and 2 x U14 teams into Avon league and started up our U12 session which is currently full with 20 more young players! After many exciting and nail biting matches, both of our U16 teams came out on top and won their respective divisions. Amazing work girls! Very well done! The U14 teams also had a great season. Our 14A team stormed their way through the seeding tournament to be placed in Division One meaning there was some challenging netball, but the girls never gave up and fought all the way. The 14B team also had a great season and narrowly missed out on the Runner Up award in Division 4. Next time girls, and very well done to all our players.
We have now introduced a brand new session for Under 12 netballers which is taking place at The Jubilee Centre, Bradley Stoke every Wednesday from 4.30pm to 5.30pm. This session is for girls in years 5, 6 and 7 and is a great opportunity for our younger players to train and develop their skills in 7-aside netball and gain some confidence before joining our older girls in the Under 14 section. This year the sessions are kindly being sponsored by Haywards Chauffeurs. We have now filled all the places at this session and have started a waiting list. Please email the club: BSNCJuniors@yahoo.co.uk
Our annual Awards and Social Evening was held on Saturday 1st July 2017 with over 100 people attending! This year we held the event at a new venue and it was good to have a bit more space. Awards were made for Most Nominated Player, Most Improved Player, Players’ Player and Coach’s Player in each team and the Achievement Award and Helen Newman Trophy were also presented. A massive well done to all those who received awards and thank you to Amy Callaway, our chairperson, for organising the buffet and disco. Thank you also to parents and carers who brought along raffle prizes – the girls always love this part of the evening and it wouldn’t be the same without your help. We are already planning next year’s event!
We are thrilled to announce that this has been our most successful season so far. Massive congratulations to the Under 16 team AND the U14A team who both WON their divisions (both Div 2) in this year’s Avon League competition. Both teams had a fairly easy first half of the season but had to fight their way through the second half to come out on top! Huge congratulations also go to the U14B team and U12 team who also did extremely well. U14B’s had a great season with lots of wins and missed out on the runners up award by just one point! The U12 team amazed everyone by going straight in to division 1! It meant they had a few tough matches but they held their own and played some great netball.
We are very proud of one of our Under 16 players, Annabelle Leach, who won ‘Most Nominated Player’ for the division for the 3rd year running. Well done everyone – We are very proud of you all and can’t wait for next season!
Our Christmas social evening was held at Hollywood Bowl and 44 girls came along to take part and enjoy an evening with friends playing a different kind of game! Despite the large number in our group the girls were amazingly well behaved and we had great fun. You can find more pictures on our facebook page – click the link over on the right!
