Budding stars to learn from the best
Netball players at the Stephen Perse Foundation will be receiving expert tuition from a Superleague side through a partnership with benecosMavericks.
The teams at the school have already been producing top performances, but the tie-up with the Mavericks will see them learn from the experts.
Gabby Marshall, the benecosMavericks mid-court player, visited the Stephen Perse Foundation senior school to share some words of wisdom and try out their new state-of-the-art sports hall with the under-14 and under-16 netball teams.
“We’re really excited to build and develop our relationship with the Stephen Perse Foundation,” she said.
“Their netball teams are playing incredibly well at regional level and we look forward to sharing our expertise as well as providing masterclasses to take the teams one step further in the future.”
The benecosMavericks are one of the most successful and longest running netball franchises in the country, and Tricia Kelleher, principal at the Stephen Perse Foundation, said: “The opportunity to train with elite netball players and get to know such inspirational women will be hugely motivating for our students, encouraging them to work hard and achieve their potential – both on the netball pitch and beyond it.
“We are committed to investing in the aspirations of our students, giving them the tools and experiences they need to fulfil their ambitions and enjoy every moment.
“I’m therefore delighted to build this partnership with benecosMavericks.”
