Rheanne Lee

The experienced players & coaches focus their sessions, tailored on skills we need and want to learn, making us a versatile squad. With opportunities such as regional tournaments throughout the year, we’ve been given brilliant chances to succeed and progress. The programme works well around my A Level subjects and has encouraged me to achieve my Level 1 Coaching qualification whilst playing competitively in and outside of my club environment.”
