Laura Horne (2001-2008) was recently appointed by Rounders England to coach the U14 England squad.
Laura got into rounders during her time at Pocklington and was sent for trials, working her way up through the age groups to make the senior squad in 2011. In 2008 she attended a rounders coaching course and in 2009 was asked alongside another rounders player to take on the U16 South national team. Laura takes up her position as U14 National Squad Coach with Sophie Calvert who will be joining her as Assistant Coach.
Each of the coaches are qualified and chosen for their commitment, enthusiasm and motivational skills. Through the season Laura will be using the skills from her coaching qualifications to encourage every player to perform to the best of their ability and to increase their confidence and to deliver skills and tactics training to enhance the team performance. We wish her well.
