A WEIGHTY PRE-SEASON SESSION

What a fortnight Netball in England! We’re all exhausted from the early starts last week! Just before the team took off to Sydney, England Netball came down to join us in Twickenham to see what we were up to!

Elaine (Coach/Player/Chief) and Nicky (Regional Captain/Personal Trainer extraordinaire) took us through our 1st weights session and here is what Elaine had to say about the experience.

“Along with the coaches, Nicky and I wanted to have a really structured pre-season to ensure we all hit the season in peak condition. Held at world-class facility at St Mary’s University, our aim was to ensure that everyone became familiar with using free weights as this should form part of our training programmes outside of netball.

“These exercises will be part of the seasons training programme, in order to try and maximise performance as well as help reduce injury risk. (Elaine’s area of interest & expertise). More women are engaging in regular weight training and seeing the benefits and for netball players the benefits are undeniable.”

Everyone loved the session and we all got a lot out of it, the weights were fun, and it was even followed by quick, high-intensity circuits at the end – there’s no stopping us!

This training will complement the skills based and tactical training through the season that our wonderful coaches put together and we all look forward to a great season ahead.
