Chichester College’s netball team are celebrating a new partnership deal, which it is hoped will herald the start of a netball academy.
The college and local netball team MSL have teamed up to create a three-tiered playing structure, with players of all ages enjoying the opportunity to take their talent to the court each week.
Sponsored by local letting agency mystudentlet.co.uk the teams will benefit from new kit – including dresses, under layers and training gear.
They will play across three leagues, with the college’s development team taking to the court in the Chichester Netball League, while the first team will defend the Chichester Premier title.
College players will have the chance to progress into the MSL team, which competes in the Portsmouth League.
Coach Nicola Holmes said: “This is an important step forward for the college’s netball set-up. For the first time, there will be a clear progression route for players as they develop and as they move on from the college.”
MSL are running a Junior Summer Camp in Felpham from Monday, August 5, to Friday, August 9, 10am-4pm, for children aged 12-14. Day (£18) or week (£75) passes available. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
