The Barbados Under-16 netball team.THE BARBADOS UNDER-16 netball team is still basking in the glory of being crowned the new champions of Caribbean netball.

Two days after returning from St Kitts with their first-ever Caribbean Under-16 title, all but one of the team's members assembled at the Netball Stadium for a look back at the tournament which has catapulted them into the limelight, and the history books as well.

The girls were all smiles as they reminisced on being unbeaten throughout the tournament, but the laughter was at its loudest when they spoke of victory over Jamaica in the penultimate match. < Read more >

goal shooter Lydia Bishop (left) showed why she is one of the best goal shooters in Barbados, taking full command of the circle. Also going for the ball is goal attack Janilla Thornhill (right) and EnglandÕs Pamela Cookey. Netball has been played in Barbados since the 1940’s, where the game has remained the most widely placed female sport on the island. Barbados is currently ranked 7 th in the world and second in the Caribbean behind Jamaica.

The Barbados Netball Association is responsible for the organisation of Netball on the island, both regionally and internationally, with just under 45 clubs and two leagues being affiliated to the BNA. Netball is played in all 22 secondary schools on the island, organised by the Barbados Secondary Schools Leagues. Competitions are played in Under 15 and Under 19 categories and at primary level under 13.

Just over 1200 players participate at club level in 10 divisions with ages ranging from 11-58. Club and Tours are played principally at the Netball stadium in Waterford, St Michael, which showcases three hard courts and seats approx 1000 spectators.

At the recently concluded 21st Caribbean Netball Championships held in Trinidad, Barbados went all the way to the finals before loosing to the Jamaica team. Trinidad and Tobago placed third and St. Vincent and the Grenadines was fourth. Following are the details on the team that represented Barbados so well.

Recognising the need for training in speech and public speaking, a group from the Barbados Netball Association (BNA) came together recently to form the Future Speech Masters Club.

BNA president Annette Beckett said at a time when there was a struggle to find the positive things, this was just one of the many initiatives the BNA had introduced over the past 18 months.

“We looked in-house and used the expertise to launch a successful Netball High Performance Programme, we worked hard with our senior national team, against major financial constraints went to the 2003 World Championships and landed a seventh rating in the world. Our Under-16 programme continued to improve and we placed second in 2002,” said the proud president. < Read more>



National Sports Council’s primary schools’ netball and football competitions

National Sports Council’s primary schools’ netball and football competitionsThe striking combination of red, black and white made Half Moon Fort Primary the only choice for the best teams on parade yesterday.
They took the top prizes when the National Sports Council’s primary schools’ netball and football competitions held at Waterford.

They were uniform right down to the shoes and socks and the black and red ribbons worn by the girls.

The girls then beat defending champions Lawrence T Gay 10-4 for the Aileen Jeffers Moore Trophy to make the return trip to school a very happy one.
