Speaking from experience, we know that sometimes tall young girls may feel uncomfortable in their bodies, embarrassed to stand out from the crowd. We want to embrace their stature, join a sport that offers confidence building, self-esteem, team work and sense of belonging.
What are Tall Camps?
Netball Scotland’s Performance team have a brand new and exciting programme built specifically for girls between the ages of 13 and 18 who would say they are tall. What do we consider to be tall? As a guideline, we would like to meet:
13-14 year olds who are over 175cm
15-16 year olds who are over 180cm
17-18 year olds who are over 185cm
Our Tall Coaches will be hosting our first ever Tall Camps on Monday 16th to Wednesday 18th July, at the Academy of Sport and Wellbeing, Perth College UHI, Perth from 11.00am – 1.00pm each day. This is your chance to come and work with our experienced (and tall) coaches that have themselves gone through an empowerment programme to learn how to turn height into a netball advantage.
I’m tall but I don’t play netball?
That’s alright – no previous netball experience necessary, that’s what we are here for, to teach you how to use your height to develop your netball skills and ability. It would be advantageous if you have a sporting background.
Who will be coaching at the camps?
