Letter from Kevin Rowley - Cheshire Trial 2013 - Why the Change?
As you may or may not know England Netball are changing their performance pathway. They have realised that there is a high drop off rate of players aged 16-19yrs and that players are not training at the intensity or with the commitment that they need to play international netball. They have realised that competition is needed. When I first became involved in County Netball and the England High Performance centre with my eldest daughter she trained every week with county for 2 hours on a Tuesday and 2 hours on a Wednesday with Excel athletes. She represented Cheshire in Northern County league matches against Manchester, Lancs, Cumbria counties and also in an English Counties league so they played the likes of Hampshire, Devon, Birmingham either home or away on Saturdays.
