Sophie's passion is netball. As well as playing she coaches a youth team and she has set up 'Back to Netball' clubsI want to build my Junior Netball Club which I run on my own on an entirely voluntary basis. Currently I can cater for girls aged 11 - 17 and my aim to expand to welcome youngsters aged 7 - 11 to play as well. I want for the girls to be able to access and enjoy playing a team sport and to show them that team sport is a healthy and fun way to stay out of trouble and get fit and healthy. By becoming a torch bearer I hope to bring more visibility to our wonderful sport and encourage more women and girls to give it a go. In addition I want to encourage young girls and boys to become Young Leaders and help them learn about Umpiring and Coaching Netball by being a strong & confident role model for them.
