Juniors

Cirencester Netball Club has a vibrant and energetic Junior Squad

Our Junior Squad provides access to netball for girls between the ages of 10 to 16 years old.

We have over 80 girls in training with us this year.  We enter teams at U12, U13, U14 and U16 in the Gloucestershire County Netball Junior League and tournaments.

We also provide opportunities for our talented and performance junior players to experience netball in the adult leagues at a competitive level.  As well as this our junior players are regularly selected for County Academy and County Development Squads.

We strongly encourage our Juniors to participate in coaching, umpiring and volunteering.

With the 2018-2019 season coming to an end, we have started to look forward towards September and the start of the new season. As we did last year, we strongly encourage our current players to register for a place in their squads. This allows us to provide the correct number of sessions needed for the players that we have and to enter teams in to the Gloucestershire League.
