We are very proud of our Netball teams at The Rodillian Academy. The Netball structure allows our best players to access more coaching and allows those who are developing their skills plenty of opportunity to progress through the A and B teams. We currently have A and B teams throughout years 7-11. These teams compete in the Leeds City Netball League and The South Leeds Netball League. Over the past 5 years we have had great success in these leagues. Last year the Year 7 and Year 9 teams won their leagues.
We actively promote the key values of dedication, commitment, respect and sportsmanship and expect all of our team members to have these key core values to be a part of the Netball teams. Netball is played as the main sport throughout all year groups in the first term. We have strong links with Rothwell Netball Juniors club and all players are encouraged to play Netball outside of school.
Netball is part of the enrichment projects in years 8 and 9. 16 girls have been selected from each year group to take part in the programme. The girls have been chosen based upon their effort, attainment and progress during their Physical Education lessons. The aim of this enrichment project is to develop the necessary skills, techniques and tactics to compete in netball at a high standard against other schools across Leeds.
As part of the programme the girls will take part in skill based learning, game play and fitness activities, which are all essential components in a game of netball. Every half term the girls take part in various team bonding activities such as ten pin bowling, orienteering and raft building. These activities are designed to make the team work together and become united as a team. As well as these activities the girls will be taken to watch competitive netball across the city e.g. Yorkshire Jets, Leeds Met and England.

Netball Results 17-18
We are amazingly proud of all our pupils in the Netball Academies and the amount of effort and additional commitment they put into the squads to ensure they are successful.
The 17-18 season has seen a superb set of results from all squads, in both league games and friendlies against some big competitors. This has resulted in some impressive wins against some of the leading netball schools, including GSAL and Queen Ethelburgas.
The year 8 & 9 squads both finished second within their league and the year 11’s and seniors both took first place!
There was also progress within tournaments, with the year 7 squad reaching the quarter finals on two separate occasions, which shows how far they’ve progressed from their first initial set of results.
