In Gloucestershire the final session of the season for the Satellite Academy as part of the Gloucestershire Performance Pathway saw the girls reflect on the skills they had learnt and developed throughout the season and ended with some fun games and match play.

A big well done goes to all players for their continued hard work and development this season and fingers crossed for all attending trials over the next few months. A big thank you to all coaches involved in the pathway, Performance Pathway lead Vicki Wood and the Gloucestershire County Netball Association for all the hard work, support and organization that goes on behind the scenes in the running and sustaining of the performance pathway in Gloucestershire.
