We have a thriving junior section who compete in the Junior Oxfordshire League, in five teams:
- U15’s – two teams
- U13s – two teams
We also have an Under 11’s team. There are no league games for U11’s. Training emphasis is on fun and teaches a variety of core skills needed to get them into netball and aid fitness. DNC accept girls from school year 5 and upwards.
The Oxfordshire junior league only has a winter season (September to April), with all matches played on Sundays. The season concludes with a tournament in May.
Club Action Planning Scheme
Didcot Netball club holds bronze level CAPS status.
CAPS is aligned to the Sport England Clubmark (the accreditation scheme for clubs with junior sections). It ensures that accredited clubs operate to a set of consistent, accepted and adopted minimum operating standards.
Our club’s bronze CAPS status means that we regularly review the areas of safeguarding and protecting children and young people, plus providing quality coaching and officiating, competition, talent development, sports equity and good management.
We have two designated Club Safeguarding Officers who are the first point of contact for all safeguarding issues with the club (this includes the wellbeing, safeguarding and protection of all the young people in the club).
Didcot Netball Club holds an annual awards night. The year’s successes are celebrated and volunteers thanked for their support.
As a club, we also attend national and Superleague netball matches, which are great days out together.
