TOP NETBALL COACH JOINS TEAM

Top Netball coach, Sue Gullick, has joined the Plymouth Studio School coaching team which already  includes former Commonwealth Sprinter, Kat Endacott-Foster and Olympic swimmer, Antony James.

Sue, who has been playing and coaching with Plymouth Pilgrims Netball Club for over 40 years and has also coached at England Netball Academies, trains aspiring Yr 12 – 13 netball players at the specialist sport academy school based on-site at Marjon.

Students taking part in the coaching include Mia Cardrew, who began playing with the ladies division 1 team for Plymouth Pilgrims club when she was just 14.

Year 12 Mia was awarded PDNL Young Player of the Year 2016 and played for the Plymouth under 16’s regional squad last year.

She most recently put in an appearance for the Pilgrim’s regional ladies squad against Hucclecote.

Sue explains, “It’s fantastic to be able to offer netball coaching to some of Plymouth Studio School’s up and coming young athletes.  Even if it’s not their first sport, many of them are discovering a new talent for the game.

“My ambition is to get players like Mia playing at regional league level as this is a real opportunity for them to have their talent spotted and progress on to the England Netball Performance Pathway”

Plymouth Studio School Head Coach, Kat Endacott-Foster,  “It’s great to have a coach of Sue’s experience and calibre joining the team and we look forward to developing netball as one of our talent sports.“

Students interested in combining their academic studies with Plymouth Studio School’s High Performance Sports Programme or studying for a career in sport can apply for a Year 10 or 12 place, sign up for a personal tour or next open day on March 30th at www.plymouthstudioschool.co.uk
