Following the devastating news about Delyth last week, we have decided to postpone training for another week.
Instead, we will be at Rydal Sports Hall on Wednesday from 6pm with a book of condolences. We will also be collecting donations towards the Club's flowers for the funeral, with the surplus going to the charity of the family's choice.
Everyone is welcome to attend - past and present club members, parents, committee members, others from the wider netball community.
This will be a safe space for us all to come together and remember what an amazing person, player, coach, and chairperson Delyth was.
We hope to see as many of you there as possible.
It is with deep regret that we have to inform you all that Delyth sadly passed away last night (24th September).
As most of you will know, Delyth was chairperson and coach of Colwyn Netball for many years. She was loved by everyone involved with the club and an inspiration to many. Her presence will be greatly missed in the North Wales netball community.
We are all shocked and saddened by the devastating news, and our thoughts are with Delyth's family and friends at this tragic time.

It's our annual summer social event this Wednesday! We'd love to see as many people as possible come along and support the club :)
There will be club members on the beach near Porth Eirias from 5.30pm. Don't worry if you can't make it that early, we'll be there for a few hours at least, so please do still pop down later on.
This year we're offering kayaking with Colwyn Watersports or handball with Lauren, followed by a delicious BBQ cooked up by Judith's lovely husband, Richard!
Kayaking & BBQ: £10 per person
Handball & BBQ: £5 per person
We're starting pre-season with two registration nights on 22nd & 29th August 2018.
Before entering the sports hall, you'll be asked to complete a registration form for the new season by Linda, Jack, and Jemma. This is even more important than ever this year because of GDPR, so please be patient while we sign everyone up.
Fees will remain the same this year, but we do need a deposit of least £30 from every single member by 31st August.
If you can't make either registration date, please let us know ASAP.
Juniors (up to Year 6): 6pm - 7pm
Juniors (Years 7, 8 & 9): 7pm - 8pm
Seniors (and anyone playing adult league): 8pm - 10pm
adult league trials
The second of the registration nights will include a trial for the adult North West & North East Wales netball league.
The panel will be made up from three independent committee members: Heidi Bakewell, Gwenan Owen, and Tracey Young. As always, the panel's decision is final and we ask that all players and parents respect that decision.
If you're unable to make the trials, but would like to play in the league, please let a committee member know as soon as possible.
With the new season fast approaching, lets have a look at what happened at last season in our quarterly newsletter!
Read all about it in the first newsletter of the 2017-18 season!
Copies will be printed and handed out at training & emailed to all registered members.
Just a quick reminder for those who still have fees outstanding. Please contact our treasurer, Jack if you have any issues regarding payment.
All the information that you require to make a pay are displayed below.
Applications are now open for the LA (Local Authority) Hub Trials.

Last night was our annual pre-season social event – and what a success it was!
First on the agenda: kayaking! We’d been threatened with rain and 40mph winds by the good people at the BBC, but it actually turned out to be a very mild evening on the Colwyn Bay coast.
A quick shout out needed here for Colwyn Bay Watersports (www.colwynbaywatersports.co.uk), who provided us with an excellent session of sea kayaking. We encourage all the locals to get down to Porth Eirias and give it a go – last night’s participants had great fun!
For those that wanted to remain dry for the evening, there was a treasure hunt, which had a whopping jackpot of £10 cash for the winners. After much anticipation, the winning team was revealed. Well done to Summer Sunshine!
With bodies absolutely exhausted from the activities, everyone sat back and enjoyed the BBQ, lovingly tended to by Richard, who did a sterling job.
Once our bellies were full of burgers and hot dogs – which came with every type of sauce and relish imaginable – we dug into pud. A big thank you to Gem’s Cakes (www.gemscakes.com) for the beautiful and delicious netball-themed cake. We may have set a world record for the time taken to demolish it!
Not only did everyone have a great night, but we also made a profit of approx. £150!
The funds will be put straight back into Colwyn Netball Club and put towards advanced training sessions with our new coach, Heidi Bakewell.
Our heartfelt gratitude goes to everyone that turned out last night, whether you’re a committee member, player, family member, or friend. We appreciate your support and hope to see you again at training/matches throughout the season.
