Our Star Coaches
We have a great line up of Star Coaches who will be attending Academies for one of the two days, delivering a masterclass to every group. Having them coach inspires young players, offers hands-on advice from people at the top of their game and an insight into what it is like to perform at the highest level.
Our previous stars have included...
Hannah Joseph - Loughborough Lightning & England Roses
Bethan Dyke - Celtic Dragons and Wales
Georgia Lees - Surrey Storm
For 2018 we have partnered with Gilbert Netball to add another level of quality to the academy both in terms of the programme and the kit that young athletes will use when on the academy with us.
We’ve narrowed the age range for 2018 and worked with senior coach Melissa Hyndman to develop our programme, making it the best we have ever offered.
The programme improves each player’s fundamental skills to develop them as a confident and competent player. We use small sided invasion games plus extensive game play to develop understanding of strategies within every position and within a team context. Our coaches create a fun and inclusive environment within which players have the opportunity to develop, practice and apply new techniques.
The Academy Will Cover:
- Fundamental skills – catching, footwork, passing
- Attacking skills and positions
- Defending skills and positions
- Midcourt skills and positions
- Shooting skills and positions
- Centre pass – techniques, tactics
- Game play and tactics
Our coaching team are happy to help players develop a specific area or skill within which they wish to improve. Please speak to the Lead Coach when signing in on the first day of the Academy.
