Christina Brend makes the step up from County to South West Academy
Year 11 West Buckland School student Christina Brend has been selected to join England Netball’s South West Regional Performance Academy.
Regional Performance Academies deliver specialist coaching and training sessions for up to 20 U19/U17 athletes, some of whom are England squad players who also attend the National Academy.
This is another step up for Christina, who was a member of the County Netball Academy based in Exeter last season. She will be travelling to the University of Bath to train every Tuesday evening throughout the year until May.
