03 England Netball

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.

 

04 Transport & Accommodation

Travel Arrangements

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.

Your Accommodation

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). 

Disneyland® Park and Walt Disney Studios® Park

All attendees of the International Junior Festival of Netball have a three day Hopper Ticket that will provide them with unlimited access to both Disneyland® Park and Walt Disney Studios® Park on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Therefore outside of the time devoted to netball, everyone is free to enjoy both Disney® Parks, ensuring a packed itinerary throughout your time away.

Five Day Self-Drive Festival Arrangements

We appreciate that some schools and clubs may wish to make their own travel arrangements, either using their own coach or minibus or even travelling with families by car, therefore we are also offering the
Festival without Sport Experiences’ travel arrangements. On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, you will need to travel between your accommodation, the Disney® Parks and the netball courts. You will therefore need to make your own arrangements for these
transfers.

Disney's Davy Crockett Ranch

Your accommodation throughout the tournament will be at Disney's Davy Crockett Ranch, just a 15-minute drive from the Disney® Parks.
