On the weekend of 12th and 13th July, North West Girlguiding held their first ever large scale multi sports event at Stanley Park, Blackpool for all girl guiding units from across the North West of England to access. North West netball have been working closely with North West Girlguiding for a couple of years now aiming to attract new audiences to netball and engage with more volunteers. We have also supported the ENERGISE event and were excited to be one of the key sports providers delivering netball taster sessions to groups of girls from all over the region throughout the weekend.
Four members of the North West staff team and a local volunteer from Blackpool netball club delivered 10 taster netball sessions over the two days to a total of 470 Girlguiding participants ranging from the age of 6 to 14 years old, including rainbows, brownies and guides. Research we carried out on the day tells us that out of the 470 girls who took part only 48 of these were currently engaged in community netball sessions.
We are looking for new multi sports coaches to help deliver our Open Goals programme on weekends and during the school holidays for the LFC Foundation.
We are really keen to include netball as part of our activities and would love some more female coaches to join our team. The recruitment and interview day will be held on June 2nd from, 1:30pm at Anfield Sports and Community Centre. More info can be found below:-
