Tamsin Greenway looks at how to maximise Premier League netball
Highlighting the key topics of netball, debating with them with robust conversations about these is something which Tamsin Greenway feels strongly about. This week, she also examines Premier League Netball’s subject and also how it may evolve to the better.
Last month the conversation about the contest opened on media and has been met with a dialogue that engaged both fans and club members alike and a wealth of responses.
There’s loads of attention but is your competition being maximised?
The branches of Premier League Netball have been running as the 2006-07 season and a division came in 2010. It’s the maximum level of club netball supporting Superleague and teams need to come through regional, county and national pathways to take one of those 30 areas.
Greenway knows the Premier League well having played for a number of clubs within it throughout her development.
“It had been brought to my attention from people whom I know that are heavily involved in clubs and in the set-up and I believe they were simply feeling a tiny bit left out of the loop,” said Greenway.
“I have been quite outspoken about it for quite a while, though Superleague is the top competition in the country and you don’t have any relegation out of it (at least not every season) then we will have to look at what other leagues and what rivals are occurring to make sure that we’re producing players and that they’re getting the best opportunities to compete”
If it comes in Premier League netball in its current form, the contest is the period spans from September to March and also a one.
“it is a excellent contest, I imagine the struggle for me is that it takes place on Sundays and it is all around the nation.
“You might end up playing matches at Norwich, Jersey or even Newcastle and I really found that the commitment to Superleague had been a whole lot less.
“When I stopped playing Superleague I’d have loved to have carried on playing something such as a Prem competition however, for me commitment [time and geography] with using a household was so hard.
“I think that would have been really useful for the kids coming through. Imagine if some of those retired Superleague players helped and carried on playing Prem bring throughout the young players coming out? You would have this remarkable transition”
Greenway considers Premier League netball must have its own space and its own identity , however. The contest is steeped in history and also some critical amendments working ardently for netball in England’s broader image in addition to may have that identity.
“If we examine the Signing Window, Superleague teams do not actually have to mention their squads until January so we have got four or five months speculating about who is moving where…”
“There are a lot of talking points around it. We might be talking about a fresh young player that Surrey Storm have just signed and because she’s playing in Prem and we might have the discussion about her and watch her firsthand”
Greenway is well-aware that perspectives differ on Prem situation and also that now the scenario is different by club and whether it has to alter or not.
For the international, it’s apparent that using a team which sits alongside Superleague and that helps’feed’ talent is vital. Talent from a standpoint but also from the point of view of helping to boost the game’s top-level resources concerning coaches and umpires.
From understanding people involved in Prem, that there are components to a coach’s role there that are not the standard in Superleague, greenway knows.
For instance, not having all players in coming against sides that have their players arrive on, training every week or even a coach only having their Superleague players available for just 2 quarters is forced in that respect.
All of these do not help a Prem coach develop the facets they need to be ready to step to a Superleague coaching role.
At the center of Greenway’s view on evolving Premier League netball are two fundamental elements – timing and geography.
Centralising would help with gamers’ involvement alongside bringing umpiring programmes collectively and growing training hubs. It would also produce a focal point to spur elements on. Throughout these ideas, Superleague gamers into Prem’s interaction needs to stay but ought to be fulfilled on a case by case basis.
With any discussion of change into netball in this country, heads turn to what’s happening in the Southern Hemisphere and that’s something that Greenway has her own perspectives on.
“If we have got this fantastic league that operates with all these volunteers and so many people which have been doing this for this long time. I just think it’s about time we made those guys feel part of it.
“I have talked a good deal about the fact we know there are thousands and thousands of girls playing netball each week and not a lot come to observe the elite game. If they believed part of it imagine? They might do that.
“If you have got a set of women that are off to a Sunday for seven weeks of the year [playing Prem] then they are probably not going to spend their Saturday forthcoming to see a Superleague match.
“They simply might when there is a tie ? And, if they were playing for four months of the four weeks and this year they watched Superleague and bringing club members which are attempting to get into those Superleague teams along.
“I think that there are a few tweaks that we can do and that doesn’t mean introducing a new feeder contest for Superleague. It’s about looking at what’s working well and just how do we alter and adapt this to make it even better?
“We still give individuals the choice of what they’re doing in the moment but we also take that second step to be sure that we’re receiving the best performance out of those players, coaches and umpires.”
