Get Into Coaching
Netball is changing. Participation is growing, more clubs are developing and players are getting faster and stronger. High quality coaching at all ages and ability levels is essential in helping us to be the number one sport for women and girls in England.
As the game progresses, the role of the coach in helping to develop players and teams cannot be underestimated. That’s why at England Netball we recognise the need to provide coaches with a portfolio of courses and workshops that are packed with expert knowledge, covering all areas of player and game development.
Our coaching pathway allows coaches to plot their own learner journey through a range of qualifications and workshops, helping them to fulfil their coaching potential. So, for more information on these, please explore the coaching section of the website.
For many netballers in England, their coach is the individual that empowers them to fulfil their potential, inspiring them to carry on playing and enjoy the sport. Having the passion, enthusiasm and willingness to learn are qualities needed by any coach.
You may be a parent who wants to help at their child’s local school or club, or maybe you have been playing for a while and want to explore a different way of getting involved in the sport. Whatever your reason for getting into coaching, we can help you to find the right training to progress your knowledge and understanding and give you the confidence to realise your coaching ambitions.
