About the event
We play a format of Netball designed to give players the freedom to not care about the consequences of failure and just do.
Players are encouraged to try things they’ve never done before and in some cases are prevented from relying on the things they know work. It feels like a dance of connection - changing the rhythm and flow of movement in the space between "everything is known and going to plan" and "nothing is known and everything is going wrong". The space where life is.
Everyone is encouraged to find ways to express who they are as we play for fun, fitness, and kindness. We get lost in the creative curiosity - as we laugh as we all (teammates and opponents) share in a dance of movement. A warm welcome is guaranteed.
- 7.30 to 8.30pm.
- It is at Longdean School, but the entrance is not the school. There is a separate entrance that you can only find by just putting the post code in - and nothing else - HP3 8JH
- 13+ - Mixed - All ability - club players are welcome. As are basketball players.
- There is a big "ish" with age. 11 is ok, if it works for the player and especially if a parent is playing as well.
- It is currently outside - so feel free to just turn up - as it all depends on the weather.

"Why do I go to Jon's sessions?"
"They are fun. They are stress free. Jon - has a way of teaching that I don't feel I am are being told what to do. I am encouraged to make my own choices and then supported with the decisions I make. There is no wrong decision. Only learning opportunities.

We are Imaginatively open. When someone joins - no matter how good or bad they are at sport - everyone automatically imagines new ways for them to share in a dance of sport. Sharing a connection is more important than playing correctly so the rules of a sport are adapted so that everyone can share in the dance - this is for the best as well as those who physically struggle. Everyone is encouraged to find what works for them in their context and to keep doing it till it stops working and then stop while at the same time trying other ways to find what else works for them in their context. To be free-thinking. Openly imaginative. We want lots of alternative views on a given situation. We value a viewpoint that doesn’t make sense to others because they are the most imaginative. We want and seek neuro-diversity because having a variety of approaches that are constantly evolving to any one problem creates a high-performing, agile, creative, and inclusive community. We promote fresh thinking. We are open-minded. Inclusion is in our DNA.
Health and safety
The additional risk for what we do compared to Sports Coaching is that we have a much wider range of abilities and ages. Sports Coaching manages this risk by streaming players by ability and age. We manage this risk in a different way so that we can safely bring a more diverse group of people together. Click here to see our risk assessment in a google doc.
Lets play ball
We are a social enterprise. We use all profits to give those who are excluded or vulnerable to social exclusion a free experience of playing sports and games where everyone set's each other up to succeed. Where everyone constantly imagines other ways. Where everyone uses mistakes to find what is next and grow. Experiences to build a belief that they are not stuck as they are now. Thank you.

Pay it forward
This "Pay it forward" ticket gives someone a free ticket to this event. They are typically people who suffer social exclusion because they think differently. They use our events to grow a belief in themselves that they can live a life of their making free from a fear of not being good enough in the eyes of others. Thank you!
