Netball is the major sport for girls at Belhaven during the Spring Term.
Every girl in the school takes part in daily netball sessions which are coached by year group – U9, U11 and U13.
The different teams are coached by members of the teaching staff, who make sessions enjoyable and allow the girls to build upon their skills, coaching them to a high standard.
Over the past few years, Belhaven has fielded teams at U13, U12, U11, U10 and U9 level and this has allowed every girl to represent the school in at least one match. Matches allow the girls to play competitively and afterwards to socialise with other schools during the match tea. The past few seasons have seen the senior girls triumph in tournaments and remain unbeaten.
Highlights of the term’s senior netball fixtures include: selection for the Thistles Netball team (consisting of girls from local prep schools) to play against two other Scottish representative sides; patrol netball matches; a staff match and Mothers v Daughters matches.
