For the 10th year running Julie, has stepped in to lead netball training sessions for the Surrey Youth Games. Last year she led and mentored a team of six volunteers so that over sixty five girls, none of whom were members of a netball club, could benefit from 1.5 hours a week for 8 weeks of their favourite school sport. In 2017 Reigate & Banstead took 4 teams to the games. The older u13 girls 1st team, some of whom have benefited from 2 to 4 years of Surrey Youth Games coaching led by her, took Gold. Her coaching and encouragement promoted the level headiness, fairness, team work and friendship that bought the team of girls from five different schools together for success.
