Trainings & Calendar
During the winter season (Nov-Mar) we train indoors at Laan van Spartaan sports hall. Our trainings are divided into two main sessions:
- Thursday night training - General Netball skills and drills
- Sunday match play - split into two 1 hour matches
Our court and clubhouse is based on the Kinderdijkstraat 29 in Amsterdam, which is where we train in the summer season.
The first Thursday and Sunday of evey month, we hold open Orientation sessions for people who would like to join our club.
Thursday Orientation session: Good stretching and warming up, followed by a short circuit to get the muscles going. The rest of the training will be focusing on medium intensity skills training (ball drills, footwork and general movement), ending it off with some game play.
After the session we will also be hosting drinks close by. This is a great way to meet current members and test the club vibe 🙂
Sunday Orientation match play: An open session where club members can mix and play in teams. You will be delegated into a team for the morning.
AMSTERDAM VS UTRECHT LEAGUE
To keep the competition level to a high standard, we have monthly matches against our sister club Utrecht Netball. These are great trainings for future tournaments, and we just love seeing Netball grow in The Netherlands!
We love a good pub quiz! We host 2 pub quizzes a year and use the procedings to fund our upcoming tournaments.
These quizzes are open to all Amsterdam Netball members and their families.
The most relaxed part of Netball: Brunches after Saturday morning trainings!
We usually pick a spot in the area and just have a quick bite before starting the weekend.
We end off our year with a Christmas party equal to no other!
Ugly Christmas sweaters are totally allowed.
At the end of every season (half year) we go do a fun group activity like bowling or laser tag.
