Welsh netball captain and former Rydal Penrhos pupil Suzy Drane will be running a special master class at the school next month.

The talented athlete, who is also a lecturer in Sport Development and Performance Sport at Cardiff Metropolitan University, will be passing on her knowledge to budding stars on Wednesday, September 20.

During the sessions Drane will be implementing a series of skill-set drills aimed to improve technique and awareness, while also passing on some of her own experiences at high-profile competitions such as the Netball World Cup.

Drane was also part of the coaching team at Rydal Penrhos that travelled to Greece for a special tour earlier this year, where she was hand to lend her expert advice during both training and competitive fixtures.

She has amassed more than 75 caps for the Welsh side in what has been a fantastic career to date, while also contributing significantly to the recent success of the Celtic Dragons, who ply their trade in the national Netball Super League.

Director of Sport Allen Boyd, said: “Suzy has a wealth of experience and our netball players benefitted significantly from her presence on their tour of Greece, and we are delighted that she will be returning to Rydal Penrhos to deliver a master class to our young hopefuls.

“She has been a hugely influential figure in the growth of the sport nationally in her role as captain, and Suzy continues to serve as an incredible role model for any aspiring talents that want to follow in her footsteps.”
