In September 2022 we move into our fourth year of the Netball Academy and look forward to welcoming a new cohort to build on the success of our previous years.
It will be a two-year course that will be adapted to suit the individual needs based on ability and personal targets. We invite applications from current netball players of all levels who are looking to improve their skill or require assistance with higher level training and fitness development.
The curriculum will be timetabled to include technical, strength and conditioning sessions as well as team play.
"As a new student at Great Baddow High School, the Netball Academy helped me build new friendships but also focused me on my goals and helped me realise what it takes to become a confident netball player. It's great for me as an A Level student, promoting a healthy balance between studying and my aspirations in netball." Sixth Form student
Students will receive a bespoke training programme with ongoing support to achieve their goals whilst studying either a two year academic or vocational course.
The course will be delivered by experienced netball coaches including former Saracens Mavericks and international player Vicky Sweeting who will be Head of the Programme.
Vicky has had a netball career playing at the highest level and first represented U18 England schools in 1992 and in 2000 was selected into the senior England team.
Vicky is an experienced qualified Level 2 UKCC netball coach and is part of the Saracens Mavericks pathway team. This year she will be the Assistant Coach for the U15 Saracens Mavericks Academy Squad and currently is the Head Coach of Conquerors Netball Club.
