Peppermill Champions 2022!
The Peppermill Challenge, which took place on 26 March, is Swiss Netball’s national seniors club competition. Nine clubs took part this year and we were thrilled to see AGNA bring home the coveted trophy. Congratulations to team AGNA for this fantastic achievement.
Junior Clubs Tournament, 6-7 November 2021
The JCT, which took place in November, is Swiss Netball’s national juniors club competition. This year, AGNA entered teams in all four age categories. Well done to everyone who represented AGNA at the competition. We’re immensely proud of you all.
Our U17 team took the gold medal in a nail-biting final; our U15 team went home with the silver medal; and our U13 and U11 teams were both placed 3rd in their age categories.
A special mention to Mia who won the U17 Players’ Player Award and the Jo Beveridge Player of the Tournament Award and also to Saoirse who won the U15 Players’ Player Award.
We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone associated with the club who helped to make this weekend a success: players, coaches, umpires, scorers, parents and supporters.
Europe Netball Open Challenge, 7-10 October 2021
Congratulations to everyone who took part in Europe Netball’s Open Challenge in Gibraltar, especially the four AGNA girls who were selected to represent Switzerland. Also, our own Head Umpire, Bronwyn, who accompanied the girls as part of the coaching management team. We’re very proud of you!

Assistant netball coach opportunities
Are you a parent who would like to be involved with the club? Are you a player and would like to expand your skills further? If yes, then why not be an assistant netball coach? We always welcome new additions to come and help with the club.
Assistant coaching duties include the following:
- Arriving at training on time and fully prepared for the session. This entails reading the session plan in advance, in order to know what to expect.
- Greeting players on arrival and guiding them to and from the gym hall.
- Helping to set up and put away equipment.
- Monitoring players throughout the session and encouraging use of correct netball technique.
- Taking directives from the Head Coach and assisting the Head Coach.
- Ensuring health and safety practises are followed.
- Promoting a caring, positive environment for everyone.
- Attending some tournaments and matchplay events.
The aim of the assistant coach role is to eventually be able to plan the training session and lead this for a small group of girls. It is extremely rewarding to help the girls build their confidence and to watch and help them develop their netball skills. If you are interested, please come along to one of our training sessions to find out more.
