Club training & 5th team
Sessions for everyone – every Wednesday from 7.30pm – 9.30pm at Petchey Academy (starts in September).
These sessions are led by current Highbury 1 player Dennis Hartsink. Dennis has played for many years, starting as a junior player in the Netherlands (where korfball originates from, so he knows his stuff!).
The sessions will focus on core skills and match-play. Squad players are also strongly encouraged to attend and will be able to focus on developing skills from their own training during these sessions.
Season costs will be announced soon.
