My name is Claire Connor. I first came to the UAE in 1998 to work as a PE teacher – the perfect environment for me to indulge in my passion for fitness and sports which included representing the UAE in Netball.
Over the years I have had the pleasure of coaching many children in various sports with my aim always being to instil a passion for exercise and to arm them with the core skills which they can build on as they advance through the age groups. It is always a pleasure to see the children develop their skills and enjoy the camaraderie that team sport brings.
When I moved to Abu Dhabi in 2013 I decided to set up CCN to start teaching my daughters and their peer’s netball. From this small beginning CCN now provides coaching for 6 to 14 year olds.
Whilst the primary focus is on training the core skills in the various key areas of netball the overall objective is to make netball enjoyable and fun so that the girls want to continue playing for years to come. I am a firm believer that players getting as many ball touches as possible within each session as this constant repetition is vital to reinforce and build these skills.
I am looking forward to seeing your girls join us.
