Recent Classroom Takeover:
We recently took over the online classroom at Trent College and The Elms and had a fun three days delivering netball the Lightning way!
Our coaches and players delivered a range of ball skills, netfit and performance anaylsis sessions to a variety of age groups and we had a blast doing it. 

What did the students have to say about it? 

"Thank you so much for the opportunity to have a training session with Sam May, it was incredible!"

Performance Analysis session with U17 Lightning Head Coach, Alex Styan...
"It was really useful. Very good from a defensive perspective to get that high level of intel on new techniques!!"
