EY is set to sponsor the Year 7 Netball Programme, which is open to girls and boys in school year 7. Regardless of their previous netball experience, everyone is welcome to the sessions that take place every Monday evening (during term time) from 5.00pm - 5.45pm on the indoor courts at Beau Sejour.

Amy Fallaize, Netball Development Officer gave thanks to EY for their support: “We're really grateful to have EY supporting GNA’s Youth Netball programme. The goal when starting this initiative was to ensure that every child wanting to play netball after school has the opportunity to do so. We started up in September, focusing on Year 7, and we now have almost 60 children attending weekly, which continues to grow!

EY's support is vital in helping us to ensure the programme can continue to grow and develop in the years to come. It's a brilliant next step in our journey to providing safe, inclusive and enjoyable netball experiences for all” says Guernsey netballs development officer.

Fiona Morton, EY’s Assurance and People Partner, explained why EY wanted to be involved, and said: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to support the GNA with their newly founded Year 7 Netball Programme. The wonderful team of paid and volunteer coaches help facilitate the programme and create an environment where children can learn new skills, build new friendships, and have fun playing netball!

It’s our hope that the programme will help make netball more accessible to children from a much younger age across the island, ultimately giving more children the opportunity to experience and enjoy netball. We look forward to supporting the GNA as the programme grows over the coming years.”
