City Netball Tournament

Precise passing and flawless footwork was the aim for our U12 netball team representing Derby High in the Derby City Netball Tournament.

The nine members have been attending an extra early morning training session with Mrs Hancock and elite U15 netball coach Issi Bryon and were keen to put their developing skills to the test against some local opposition. Confronted with some extremely tall players from other teams the Derby High girls showed incredible persistence.

In defence Molly, Aminah and Olivia made some great interceptions and in the mid court Megan, Areej, Lucie and Eden turned defence into attack with ease. In the shooting circle Olivia and the captain Alex scored in every match. Overall the team had four close losses, one draw and two wins which was a great accomplishment. 

Well done to them and to Issi for coaching and umpiring the squad.
