You will be picked up from your club or school this morning for the journey to Disneyland Paris. On arrival, our tour managers will check you into your accommodation and you will then have the remainder of the evening free to settle in.
This morning we will commence the International Junior Netball Tournament matches which will take place throughout the morning and early afternoon. At this pool stage of the Tournament, teams compete to determine their place in either The International Cup or Shield Competition Play-Offs and Finals. The remainder of the afternoon and evening are then free to enjoy Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park.
Today players and coaches will take part in our exclusive Coaching Clinics and Masterclasses delivered by England Netball. The specialist sessions will promote and develop both team and individual player skills. By spending time with each team and players individually it is possible to deliver bespoke and innovative sessions that build on their current ability levels and lay the foundations for future development. There will then once again be free time during the late afternoon and evening for everyone to enjoy the Disney® Parks.
The International Cup and Shield Competition Play-Offs and Finals will be played today, taking place during the morning and early afternoon. Sure to be competitive and featuring a high standard of netball, they also enable players to put into practise the knowledge and skills picked up during the Coaching Clinics and Masterclasses. The late afternoon is then free to enjoy the Disney Parks.
The Festival will conclude with the Awards Ceremony, held in Disney® Village, with dinner included. The international player celebrities will present the tournament winners with their trophies. In previous years England internationals Rachel Dunn, Stacey Francis, Serena Guthrie, Sasha Corbin and Lindsay Keable have joined us at Disneyland Paris to present the trophies!
After breakfast you will leave Disneyland Paris and make the journey back to your school or club at the end of a thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding five days away.
Coaching Clinics and International Players Masterclasses
As a result of our partnership with England Netball, the coaching clinics and masterclasses are led by world-class players and coaches. These inspirational and passionate players and coaches are all involved in the game at the highest level.
The aims of the clinics and masterclasses are to combine both individual and team development, including defending, attacking, ball skills, movement skills, Centre Court play, Defending Circle play, Attacking Circle play, tactical and strategic play and strength and conditioning. Young players will have the opportunity of enjoying coaching through technically accurate demonstrations from elite players, who are themselves beneficiaries of high performance coaching.
We are pleased to offer all groups of 40 or more paying passengers the exclusive use of their own 48 or 49 seater coach for the entire duration of the Festival. Groups of less than 40 paying passengers will be allocated a shared coach with another school or club for their travel arrangements for the duration of the Festival to ensure they have no coach under-occupancy charge to pay.
Specifically chosen for its suitability for junior sports teams, Disney's Davy Crockett Ranch® offers cabin style accommodation, with each cabin containing one double bed in one bedroom and three or four single beds in a second bedroom. These spacious two-bedroom bungalow cabins can therefore accommodate up to six people (*For school teams it is best to plan your tour arrangements based on five sharing a cabin - for details see the Information Pack).
