Leeds Beckett University - Headingley Campus

Sunday March 18 – Leeds Beckett University – £20 for the day

We are looking forward to our next Leeds Rhinos Netball Festival where Academy and Hub athletes can come together and put all they have been learning into practice, and then learn some more about the Rhinos way to learn, play and win!  This is for all our Hub and Academy athletes, except U11s. Last time we had an incredible number of athletes who all had a fun filled day of learning. Places are limited, so book early!

The day will run between 10am and 3:30pm.  All athletes will take part in four interlinked activities to build on what they have been doing so far through the programme. Athletes will be split into groups and rotate around the activities during the day. Please note some are indoor and some outdoor, so note the kit requirements! We will brief and debrief the athletes all together at the beginning and at the end of the day, including a question and answer session with a Rhinos coach and Netball Ambassador.

Please wear Rhinos kit. Please bring water, snacks and a packed lunch. Be careful not to have any unnecessary valuables. Please bring a kit bag with any medication, strapping, recovery snacks (see bottom of page), plus any spare clothes/trainers.

 Activity 1: #Play like a Rhino, Netball, Sports Hall

  • Netball games in Blue Hall. Rotations/short games, with players deciding on what they will work on and giving each other feedback. Also likely to be filmed for use at another session during the day

Activity 2: #Train like a Rhino – Part 1: Rugby (outside)

  • Rugby drills outside (outside clothing/footwear)

Activity 3: #Train like a Rhino – Part 2: Netball drills and skills (small gym)

  • Sharpening the basics

Activity 4: #Think like a Rhino (classroom)

  • Elite player to talk through analysis of one of their games/or footage of their position – what they are looking for, to help athletes think about analysis
  • Play tactics e.g. centre pass attack and defence, shooting and defending – looking at specific footage and learning about what’s good and bad etc

We will have a selection of Rhinos coaches on the day, plus hopefully our Netball Ambassadors helping as well.

We can’t wait to see you there and continue the journey of personal development. If you have any queries, please ask!
