Redmaids’ High Netball coach selected for first England Mixed Netball team

We’re delighted to announce that Miss Hull, sports coach at Redmaids’ High School has been selected for the first ever England mixed Netball squad.  

Miss Hull plays for the South West Hawks, a newly formed mixed netball team who aim to build on the provision of mixed netball in the UK. As an experienced coach as well as a talented player, Miss Hull has worked with both the U19 and U21 Severn Stars National Performance League teams over the last 5 years and last summer became the Head Coach for the new Severn Stars Under 17 Nova Academy which is hosted at Redmaids’ High.  

Nova Academies provide talented players with weekly training sessions, strength and conditioning programmes, high level technical training, sports therapy and off-court support. The new training academy hosted at Redmaids’ High is the only Nova academy in Bristol and one of only 10 in the South West region.  

Director of Sport at Redmaids’ High, Claire Maggs said, “We are so proud of Miss Hull for being selected for the first ever England mixed netball squad. She is an incredibly talented player and will be a real asset to this team. Her passion for netball has inspired many of our own students to pursue netball outside of school and our students and the players coming through the Severn Stars academy have benefited so much from her expertise and exceptional coaching.”  

Netball is an integral part of our outstanding sporting provision at Redmaids’ High. This year saw our Under 16 teams reaching the national school finals and our Under 19 team placing as runners up in the ‘Sisters n Sport’ national plate final. Our new purpose-built sports facility The Lawns, near Cribbs Causeway will enable us to continue improving our offer with its new floodlit and versatile netball courts. 

The formation of the England mixed netball squad reflects the EMMNA’s (England Men’s & Mixed Netball Association) goal of enabling more people to play netball and have access to the huge benefits the game can bring.  

Commenting on her selection for the mixed England squad, Miss Hull said “I am thrilled to be selected for this squad. Netball is such a fantastic sport, and this is a positive step in making it more inclusive and accessible to those who consider it a female only sport. It’s going to be a great experience playing alongside these highly skilled players and I’m excited to see what we achieve together as a team.”
