County mailing list

Gloucestershire Netball county mailing list

Want to find out about Gloucestershire Netball news and upcoming events?

A change from previous years: in addition to the clubs mailing list, this season we will be running a separate Gloucestershire Netball county mailing list:

  • The clubs mailing list will be used for league-specific issues.
  • The county mailing list will be used to send out details of upcoming events, coaching and umpiring courses, volunteer opportunities and general news (these will no longer go to the clubs list). The county mailing list that is open to all of our individual members – players, coaches, umpires, etc. So please feel free to send this invitation around to all the members of your club.

The advantage of this approach is that you can choose what you want to receive, and that our news and events can be advertised to a wider group of people.

You can unsubscribe from our county mailing list at any time, and this won't affect any important emails you receive as a club, umpire or coach.

Coaches have their say in Gloucestershire

The newly appointed Gloucestershire Netball Coaching Secretary and NDO (Rachel Bussey) facilitated the County’s first Coaching Forum last month. Just shy of 20 coaches from across the county attended an informative evening. Funding sources, UKCC pathway, coaches needs and offers were among the topics discussed and we have some clear action plans to take away and implement.

"We are going to make it a biannual event and hope for increased attendance next time from a more varied selection of clubs and schools," said Stella, the Coaching Secretary, "I've taken a copy of all the notes taken and will be circulating them in due course to all those who attended."
