Academy Play Day
The 19th October saw the first ever East Academy Match Day. Athletes from both region Academies, Braintree and Oaklands, plus invited county academy athletes from across the region came together to put their training into practice. Athletes were divided in to 5 teams to play 10 rounds of fast paced netball. Sam Meade, East Region Performance Pathway Coach (PPC) said,
"This is a great opportunity to bring both regional academies together, along with selected County academy athletes. The day is designed to give match play experience where they can apply their training and to have the platform to work on goals and targets we have set them to date. For the County academy athletes, this is their chance to see and play alongside athletes higher up the pathway and have an idea of the level they are working towards. It's also exciting for me to see what we have coming through the pathway and to help direct some of their training".
