Juniors

Team kit sponsored by Salsa and PSP Data Communications Ltd. Youth Korfball
Youth training sessions June 2009 – June 2010.

PLEASE GET IN TOUCH IF YOU ARE A LOCAL SCHOOL TEACHER, YOUTH LEADER (OR POTENTIAL JUNIOR MEMBER) TO DISCUSS TASTER SESSIONS IN YOUR LOCAL AREA Korfball was originally developed by a Dutch school teacher in 1902, as a sport that would encourage cooperation between boys and girls at his school. It remains ideal for school-aged kids today, so CaNKorf formed its own Junior section in 2009. We would also like to get korfball introduced into the curriculum (and extra-curriculum) at as many schools as possible, and would love to hear from any teachers or assistants who could help us to do this. CaNKorf’s Junior section is currently open to new members between the ages of 8 and 16. The older people in this range (those over 14 years old) are also welcome to join in with the adult section that trains after the youths if they want to (and if their parents consent to this).

Clubmark logo All of our youth sessions are coached by a small team of nationally-qualified korfball coaches and DBS-certified assistants from CaNKorf and Castle KC. The club does everything that it can to be child-friendly and is accredited by Clubmark, the country’s leading quality assurance scheme for clubs with junior sections.

When and where we play

Please get in touch with us if you are interested in joining. The Junior section meets on Tuesday evenings, from 8:00m to 8:30pm in the main sports hall at Malbank School, Welsh Row, Nantwich CW5 5HD. For those joining-in with Adult training, the session continues until 9.30pm.

What do you need to play?

You don’t need any special equipment to play korfball – just a regular pair of trainers, and some clothes that you don’t mind getting a bit sweaty in! Most players just wear shorts and a T-shirt. It’s also a good idea to bring a bottle of water along so that you can have a drink during the breaks. New players will need to fill out a parental consent form, giving us contact details and details of any medical conditions, etc. Parental consent forms will be available at all training sessions, or can be downloaded from the web by clicking here.

How much does it cost?

CaNKorf’s Junior sessions cost £1 per week. The cost for attending the full training session, i.e. including Adult training until 9.30pm is £4 per week.
