Mavericks Partner with Leading Independent School Felsted

18th January 2017

 

  • New two year agreement sees Mavericks partner with Felsted to help develop the school’s netball programme
  • Community outreach paramount to both Mavericks and Felsted.

 Hertfordshire Mavericks are delighted to welcome leading Essex based independent school, Felsted to its family of sponsors as an official Partner Institution in a new two year agreement.  This deal will see Mavericks works with Felsted to develop their overall netball programme and extend Mavericks outreach into Felsted’s local community.

Gloria Keech, Franchise Director, Hertfordshire Mavericks, said, “I am delighted that we now have an official relationship in place with Felsted School.  We pride ourselves on our commitment to player pathways all the way from primary school children through to our Superleague squad so ties like this to key schools in the area are vitally important.  The link with Felsted is even more exciting for us given one of most senior players, Lindsay Keable is a member of staff at the school.  We look forward to working more closely with Felsted over this two year period and beyond.”

Lucy Barrett, Head of Netball at Felsted commented: "We are thrilled to formalise our partnership with a Superleague Team such as Mavericks as it means we now have strong pathways for our pupils across all our major sports (Saracens Rugby, Hornets Hockey and Essex Cricket). It gives our pupils great exposure to top coaches, such as Lindsay Keable, alongside access to tournaments and workshops."
