WASPS CAMP

Last week, some of our year 9 & 10 netballers headed to the Ricoh Arena for a free Wasps Camp, provided by the PE department to celebrate their successes over the past couple of years.

The students did Southam College proud, rotating round a 10 station circuit. The first station was a tour of the stadium, where they got to go into the changing rooms and out onto the rugby pitch through the tunnel – fantastic views into the backstage parts of arena!

Tamsin Greenway, former international netball player and Wasps coach led the girls in some fun drills on the show court. This is the first time that Wasps have let people other than the players on their match court.

Sam May, a current Wasps player who has been to Southam before, showed the students how to develop their footwork skills with some difficult ladders drills.

Activities also included; shooting, passing and possession, where the teams were challenged by coaches from the various Wasps hubs.

The students also met Tamsin Moala from New Zealand who has recently joined the Wasps team this season, for a Q & A session.

Overall, the day provided some outstanding opportunities for the students to meet their role models and learn from the players and coaches at the top of their game.

Well done everyone!
Miss MacLachlan & Mrs Smith
