New junior section to be launched by Portishead Pirates

PUBLISHED: 14:12 04 June 2014

Portishead Pirates Netball Club is launching a new junior section.

PORTISHEAD Pirates Netball Club is pleased to be launching a new junior section on June 10, which will initially be open to girls in school years 7, 8 and 9 (in September 2014).

The club, which has been running for almost five years and currently has two teams in the Weston League, is running the new section with two volunteers who have experience in sports coaching. Players from the club will also be offering their coaching skills on a voluntary basis.

The junior club will run on Tuesday evenings from 7-8pm at Gordano School outdoor courts initially for a 10-week pilot to assess its success.

If the junior section takes off as envisaged and with help from the children’s parents, Portishead Pirates are looking to establish themselves long term and to play indoor in the new school sports facility at Gordano.

Chairperson Lindy Cox of Portishead Pirates, said: “It was a fantastic relief to be contacted by two motivated volunteers keen to get the junior section started after being approached on numerous occasions.

“Currently girls in the town have to travel to Nailsea, Clevedon or into Bristol to play netball, so this is a fantastic opportunity for young girls living locally in the town.”
