That this House welcomes the success of East Renfrewshire’s All Stars Netball Club, which, pre-pandemic, was the biggest junior netball club in Scotland with over 150 players aged from 4 to 17; notes that over the pandemic the club continued outdoor training, overcoming difficulties in accessing premises to do so, and secured four newly qualified level one coaches from their under 17 members to help coach younger players, with the training for this award being done on line; congratulates the club on winning the Under 15 Scottish Youth Club competition at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow, after being undefeated all season and on reaching the final of the Under 13 Scottish Youth Club tournament; further congratulates the club’s Marissa Carlin on being shortlisted for Volunteer Coach of the Year and Alex Wittmann who won Young Volunteer Coach of the Year in East Renfrewshire Culture and Leisure Awards, and the club on winning Club of the Year; recognises the club’s growing influence locally and nationally, with East Renfrewshire District Under 15s winning Scotland’s national netball league, also undefeated all season, the Under 17 team coming 4th in Scotland, and two players involved in the Scottish Under 17 long squad, under the expert coaching of District Coach Lauren Wright, and congratulates Anna Beattie and the many volunteer coaches and managers, whose time, energy, and commitment contribute to the club’s triumphs and the fun and joy shared by the club’s members every week at training.
