Leeds Beckett University - Headingley Campus

Our third Prestige Workshop features ex-International player, current Rhinos Performance Coach and National Selector, Maggie Birkinshaw. As a player and a former coach for Loughborough Lightning & Yorkshire Jets, Maggie has a wealth of knowledge from the world of  ‘defence’ at both the international and Superleague levels and is keen to pass this on to performance-bound athletes.

This third in our four-part series will focus on the circle defenders, GK and GD. Maggie will take athletes through the principles of defending from within the circle and goal-third, giving them the skills,  know-how and confidence to assist their future strategies in game-play. The 90-minute session includes:

  • Winning the ball
  • Working together to create interceptions
  • Key defence principles through on court set-ups


Our two 90-minute sessions can facilitate a maximum of 20 athletes each from the U15 and U13 age-groups, times as follows:

U13s: 6-7.30pm

U15s: 7.30-9pm

This is also an opportunity for coaches to come and learn from a leading performance coach. Choose one of the two 90 minute sessions to watch – U13s (6pm) or U15s (7.30pm) – observe, take notes, and put your questions to the coaching panel post session.
