Sarah-Storey

Sarah Storey – Level 1 Coach

Sarah has been playing netball off and on for 40 years and absolutely loves it!  Her best sporting achievement has to be winning The U18 English Schools (vs Croydon).  Her coach ran on court jumping up and down & crying, that’s when she realised they had won!  It was this Coach, Sue Woods, who instilled Sarah’s love of sport and now her desire to help Stars Netball.

Sarah still plays league netball in Crawley, and has three daughters, two of whom are members of Stars.  Sarah is also Stars U13 Team Manager.

vicky-ferris

Vicky Ferris – Level 1 Coach

Vicky has been playing netball since she was 7 years old (so over 40 years!).  She has played for various teams during her netball career and has made many friends along the way.

Her current team is called Southwick Manor and they play in the Worthing League. They have just won promotion to the Premier League which Vicky says will mostly be a test of her fitness for next season but she love a challenge!

When Vicky’s eldest child (she has 3!) started school Vicky wanted to spread the good news of playing netball so she set up an after school netball club at their primary school. Vicky obtained her Level 1 coaching qualification back in her early twenties but coaching for her was about getting children active and having happy faces. Vicky continued coaching at the school for 7 years and grew a successful school team before stepping back from this role.

After a two year break from coaching Vicky was delighted when her daughter also developed a love of netball and joined Stars NC when she was 9 years old. Vicky guesses it was inevitable that she would also get involved and she thinks it’s a real privilege to be a part of such a great club.
