England Netball are offering a High Five workshop in Lincoln on November 22nd. The three-hour practical workshop will introduce the game of High 5, the skills involved and how to get High 5 up and running in a school or club. The workshop will examine everything from the philosophy and principles of High 5, effective warm up and cool down, the basic netball skills needed to play High 5 including movement skills, passing, catching and shooting through to the organisation of a High 5 game. Teachers/coaches will have the opportunity to take part in a game of High 5 along with exploring the other support roles involved in High 5 rotations including scorer, centre pass marker and time keeper. The workshop will also address the rules of High 5 and give attendees the opportunity to umpire a High 5 game in action and gain confidence in officiating the game. This workshop is accompanied by a DVD covering all you need to know about the skills of the game; handy skills cards to use during sessions, High 5 rotation sheets, centre pass marker and score cards, and a rule book to help you and your players become more familiar with the game.

Please note that this is a practical workshop and may require coaches to participate in some activities, it is therefore advisable to ensure appropriate clothing and footwear is worn.

Sport at Lincoln are recruiting Higher Education Officers to be volunteer leaders whose role will be to help assist with the development of either Badminton, Netball or Football around the University (there’s one position in each sport). The successful candidates will also be required to also take lead the casual badminton, football or netball sessions. On average the role will take about four hours of voluntary work per week, but it’s flexible and will be fitted around the person’s studies.

This is a really good voluntary opportunity for anyone wanting to go into sports development work later on: the current HEOs have had the chance to attend national conferences and training days that have been paid for by the NGB: the Football Officer has been to St Georges park on a number of occasions and has also given a presentation to fellow University football officers at a recent national conference whilst the Badminton HEO has had her Badminton Level 1 paid for and officiated at the national BUCS Time Attack festival in February. The Netball Officer will have similar opportunities.
