Here at Chis and Sid the Netball community is thriving. With the highest rate of female participation in the school we are proud to offer an inclusive environment for all pupils allowing them to progress within a new discipline, as well as build on crucial character components such as resilience and courage.
The school grounds include indoor playing facilities as well as five full sized netball courts and students throughout Key Stages 3 and 4 will have Netball based lessons as part of the House Points Awards system.
Our teams enter both the Bexley District Competitions across KS3 and KS4 and North-West Kent Tournaments, where pupils have the opportunity to progress to regional competitions and additionally to represent Bexley at the London Youth Games.
With a reputation of achieving great success in the Bexley Borough, our teachers and coaches pride themselves on offering dynamic and creative training sessions, enjoyed by all who attend. Netball is a core component of the PE curriculum with extra-curricular training occurring at lunch times and after school during the autumn term which builds up towards the major tournaments.
The Netball community is supported by the Netball Parents Association who, play a pivotal role in fundraising for resources, such as the recent flood lights and resurfacing project which is due to be completed in September 2019. The association works year round on a multitude of projects and is always recruiting for committed and enthusiastic members to join their team.
In September 2017 we opened our doors to Key Stage 2 pupils from local primary schools, allowing them the opportunity to participate as part of the CSGS Junior Netball Club. With around twenty attendees recruited from our annual KS2 Netball Festival, we are looking forward to seeing this club flourish. In addition we are proud to offer a thriving senior netball programme which compete at school level, as well as part of the Swanley Whiteoak Women’s Netball League on a Wednesday and Thursday evening. Our teams have also undertaken successful netball tours to locations such as Italy, St. Lucia as well as local tour weekends within the UK.
