Netball is the major game for Girls in Years 9, 10 & 11 in the Spring Term. A, B & C teams run in each age group and the Sixth Form currently have a 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th VII. All teams have a busy and competitive fixture calendar.
Wycliffe is one of the NOVA centres for the Severn Stars franchise, hosting the Wycliffe Nova Academy which provides S&C sessions alongside Netball development by our Level 2 coaches. Teams compete in the South Cotswold District tournaments, Gloucestershire County Schools competitions as part of the National Schools programme, the Smile ISNC and invitational tournaments. For a small school we compete to a consistently high standard, often progressing to the knock out stages in County competitions in a tough County. The U18s are through to round 3, the last 32 in the ISNC.
Our Talented Athletes Programme (WASP) runs Netball sessions during the Autumn and Spring Term to offer pre-season, in-season, skill development and competitive play to all age groups.
Netball tours are organised and run separately or with hockey. In March 2019 the U14 & U15 A & B squads will compete in a PGL tournament weekend. The senior Hockey and Netball squads travelled to Sri Lanka in Easter 2017 for a 10 day tour. Previous touring destinations have included Edinburgh, Barbados, Malta, Dubai and Abu Dhabi. A senior long-haul tour is in the early stages of planning.
