Netball Academy Added to Surrey Storm Pathway
"Shirley and I are pleased to be linking up with Surrey Storm this coming academic year. Itchen College will become an Academy for players aged 15-19 years who want to start progressing in their netball career through the Surrey Storm pathway. Our academy will help drive players into the age group categories and hopefully see them being successful in selection next year for the U15, U17, U19 and U21 teams. I have always wanted to bring the netball closer to the south coast and with Surrey Storm being our closest franchise and close to my heart, I want to help young girls achieve their dreams, just the way I did.
With the Academy being at Itchen College it will help eliminate long distance travel and provide a balanced lifestyle for a student-athlete. I'm excited about exploring the talent around our area and helping build a future for my own franchise. A huge thank you to Itchen College and Surrey Storm for allowing us this opportunity; we are really excited to get started".
