ARGYLE Community Trust’s new Under 13s and 14s Netball team have successfully taken part in the Plymouth and District Junior Netball League, at Plymouth Life centre.
The two netball teams are part of Argyle’s PL4Sport programme, which aims to offer young people across Plymouth the opportunity to get involved and learn up to twelve different sports. Argyle delivers a range of sport sessions, from Badminton to Athletics. These sessions are open to anyone from 12-25 years old and aim to provide a relaxed social environment, as well as an educational aspect on each sport.
Argyle’s Under 13s team have been training together since the summer and have recently taken part in competitive netball matches throughout Plymouth. “After the successful formation of Argyle’s PL4 Sport Netball team last year, the new under 13s was a logical progression following the now under 14s team moving up an age group,” said Ryan Hooper, the programme manager of PL4 Sport at Home Park.
“It was great to see a large amount of girls playing a form of competitive netball, which they may never have had the chance to do, prior to the formation of the programme.” Ryan continued.
The Under 14s team, who have trained together for over a year, have made a steady start to the league.
“I’m sure both teams will have a successful but challenging season in the Plymouth and District Junior Netball League,” Ryan commented. “Regardless of results, the fact that so many young girls have the chance to represent their local football club in competitive sport is a success in itself.”
Argyle’s Netball teams are welcoming new members who are under 13 and 14 to come and play with their team. Please contact Ryan Hooper on email@example.com
