We’re officially in pre-season training!!

Our trials are now over and we’re now into pre-season training. Trials brought out some great netball and it was lovely to see many new faces and combinations. It was also a chance for us to meet our new upper squad coach Lou, who has already made a positive impact on our club.

As we had so many lovely new faces along on Monday night, coaches will continue to select squads next Monday (19th of July). While our official trailing dates are completed, we’re always on the look out for players of a good standard, so please to contact us on our Facebook page, twitter or good old fashioned email if you’re interested in coming along.

Monday will give the coaches a chance to see different combinations between players and it will give the new players a glimpse into what Tiffin is all about!

Preseason will be going on for the rest of July and the entire month of August with Lou, Mick and Clare taking most of the sessions. Please remember to fill out your availability.

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.

Tiffin – 2014 Surrey Rally Champions!

Two super squads from Tiffin took to the very sunny Nonsuch School courts on Saturday to compete in the annual start of season Surrey Rally. Over four hours of netball were played between us with lots of new combinations being tested. Big congratulations to our super Tiffin A team who were crowned overall champions, winning both glory and some very shiny medals too!

Tiffin takes the Cup at Fairlands Rally

TIFFIN VERSATILITY WINNERSA super team of 7 took to the court in the Fairlands Versatility Rally 2014. With 4 players whose first position is either GD or GK – we had super height but were lacking in the all-important department – shooting, with only one first position GA/GS in the lineup. Lynda donned the Whites for us and offered words of encouragement like, “just as long as you have people either side of Claire who can shoot, it can’t be toooo bad”.

Jo furrowed her brow as she sought the most strategic first line up to ensure success throughout the day (and did a brilliant job of it). SJ was all smiles as she took to the court – and that smile didn’t leave her face from start to finish – it’s great to have you back SJ! Sere didn’t appreciate the ribbing for her attacking style and showed everyone just what a brilliant GA/GS she can be. Nicky got super excited when she got to play out of position, which to be fair for her is really only C and WA… Morgan played like a champion in her last day in the Tiffin Blue before she moves home to her native Australia (we miss you already Morgs and you haven’t left yet!). Miranda showed us why she was Tiffin Player of the Year and stole the show in every position she played in.

With 100% wins in the pools we were sure we’d come up against Cobham or Gems in the Final. After a nail-biter in their pool match the two teams knocked each other out of the race seeing Fairland’s Over 35s run through the middle to meet us on the centre court! The first few bibs came out ok, with Smiley SJ in GA, and usual suspects in the defence end… but when Claire was handed the GS bib the groans from Tiffin were audible on the football pitch… Manning up, Claire decided to play a support role/chief rebounder putting a ton of pressure on GA SJ to get the ball in the net. The balls were coming down thick and fast from the defence end and SJ smiled her way through the pressure and shot for success.
