The NET ACADEMY is designed to help players to learn, train and perform as athletes so that they can reach the next level of their game, be outstanding on the court and be confident entering club, county or franchise trials, training environments and competitions with their clubs and schools.

The academy is completely athlete centred, meaning that we focus every session around the individual to help them to improve their own performance and reach their own goals. In each session players will be exposed to strength and conditioning training, fundamental skills coaching, technical and tactical challenges and team building to help them to create the building blocks they need to become a better athlete.

The Academy does not replace club or school training. Rather it supports the learning of skills and understanding of the technical and tactical game so that players can reach their goals within the sport wherever they play. We aim to support the netball journey of players in a professional, performance driven environment alongside club and school commitments.

Founded in 2022, the Academy has since worked with over 40 athletes to help them to improve not only their skills on the court, but also their confidence and mental resilience for the game. It is important to us that, whilst all of our academies are performance focused, our approach to training and development remains holistic and we are able to allow players to progress and develop in a nurturing environment.

Developed by NET Founder and Head Coach, Jenni, both our Performance and Development Academy will help support the netball journey of all it’s athletes to reach their goals in the sport alongside our committed, passionate and skilled coaches.

Hear some of the stories and success of the athletes already involved in our academy programme.

Clemmie has improved so much since joining the academy, not only in her individual skills, but also in her tactical understanding of the game and ability to analyse and better her own performance. Here’s what she has thought of the programme so far:

“Absolutely love it !! I’m always very excited to go to my NET session. Jenni is an amazing coach she makes hard work fun !! I’ve learnt a lot very useful things from my sessions over the weeks and I can tell it shows in my gameplay. I would defiantly recommend NET training sessions to people who want to take there game to the next level”

Bella joined the academy with a view to improving her chances for a county/hub selection next season.

“In the academy, it isn’t just netball games it’s the tactical techniques to make your games improve. You learn how to make your passing accurate, give and go when passing to lose defenders and improve your attacking. These techniques are game changers because it makes you realise how much knowledge is behind them and how much this helps you improve in your games. Especially, with a great coach that boosts your confidence, makes you feel like you can achieve anything and is really understanding when teaching them.

Thanks for another fantastic ‘social distancing’ netball and fitness session. Crosskeys are really enjoying these brilliant sessions delivered in such a professional and friendly manner. Your enthusiasm and energy are amazing and it’s no wonder we have a waiting list for all sessions.

Karen – Head Coach Crosskeys Netball Club

All the girls loved the session, even though it was a tough work out in the sun! The training was pitched perfectly to stretch them but remain fun, and each felt that they improved their technique. Watching from the side-lines it was clear you kept them totally engaged and gave meaningful individual feedback. They loved being back together on court after such a long time, working hard and learning from a really energetic and passionate coach.
