Fresh from international success against Jamaica in the Test Match Series, the England Netball coach is coming to Loughborough University this weekend (Sunday 8 March) to give coaches in the East Midlands region some top tips at a special training day.
National coach Sue Hawkins will be leading a training session focusing on shooting, attacking and defending play for over 40 coaches at the University’s Netball Centre.
Organised by Regional Talent Coach, and former Loughborough Lightning Coach, Rosie Port, the session with Sue will run from 9am until noon and there are still places available.
Sue Hawkins recently led the England team to a series sweep against Jamaica in The Co-operative International Netball Series in three test matches at the O2 Arena in London, Coventry’s SkyDome Arena and the Trent FM Arena in Nottingham.
Rosie Port said: “The training day has been organised for netball coaches in the East Midlands area to pick up new training tips in sessions involving 14 regional players and players from the National Talent League.
“We are thrilled that Sue is able to come along and pass on her expertise to the coaches and players. I’m sure the day will prove useful and interesting for all involved.”
Current Lightning player-coach, and former England captain, Olivia Murphy, said, "This day is a fabulous opportunity for coaches and players to work alongside the England National Coach.
“I am looking forward to picking up some ideas that might help Lightning in their final phase of the season! These opportunities don't happen very often, so I am really looking forward to the experience"
