NetballStars was created to offer an alternative sports activity for young people in the Newbury area and began its journey in October 2018. We encourage children to not only learn the skills of the sport but also to learn that exercise can be fun now and in the future. At NetballStars we promote the social side of being part of a team, so new friends are made and experiences are created.
To allow us to design a fun and safe environment we have carried out the necessary training required to achieve this. The NetballStars Team hold the following qualifications:
All England Netball Coaching Qualification
Level 2 Certificate in Coaching (Sport and Physical Activity)
First Aid in Sport
