Netball is a fantastic sport where girls can make friends and have fun whilst maintaining a healthy active lifestyle.  It is a fast, skillful team game based on running, jumping, throwing and catching.

It is the fastest growing female sport in England and we’d like to get even more young people into the game and keep them in the game. We recognise schools give many girls their first experience of netball and we’d like to support teachers to deliver an experience that will keep them in the game for life.

We want to help schools to delivery quality curricular, extra-curricular and competitive netball opportunities for all pupils who love netball.  We aim to support the links between our clubs, leagues and schools to ensure pupils can continue their netball participation into a community setting. We have workshops and resources available for schools and have a team of dedicated netball officers across the country ensuring opportunities are available for schools.

The following sections aim to support you to deliver and organise netball within your school. If you want to keep up to date with all the latest relevant developments in the world of netball why not become a member of England Netball for all our communications.

Your local netball support

 We currently have a team of dedicated Netball Officers covering every county in England. Part of their role is to support our young eager netballers, teachers, schools and clubs.

Whether you need to gain more netball technical knowledge when teaching, familiarise yourself with the different resources available to support your lessons, run a leadership award, or find out how to help talented netballers progress into Academies, we can help!

Listed below are examples of how NDOs are currently supporting schools:
  • Further information for teachers about the coaching workshops, such as, Sharp Shooting, On the Ball and On the Move can be found here
  • Facilitating the Young Umpire Award and Young Netball Organiser courses for students aged 14 and over.
  • Identifying volunteering and leadership opportunities within the community to support young leaders in gaining more qualifications and experience.
  • Signposting and supporting internal and external programmes and schemes, such as funding applications, facility project applications and County Sports Partnership (CPD) courses.
  • Linking schools with local clubs and coaches.
  • Advising schools on the opportunities to compete within the local area.
