YOUTH

Our Junior section offers netball coaching to girls in school year 4 through to year 11. We currently have 125 girls training and playing competitive matches 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 all aspects of netball including coaching, umpiring and volunteering.

2023-24 Season

We are excited for the coming season in September. During the summer break our current players have been registering their commitment to return. 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.

New players to the club, please email cirenyouthnetball@yahoo.co.uk if your daughter would like to play for Cirencester. One of our junior coaches will then make contact with you.
