Performance Pathway

The Performance Pathway is England Netball's process for developing athletes with the attributes to attain excellence. The programmes within the pathway are focused on developing athletes to reach their potential and form the foundations to enable England Netball to be the Number 1 Ranked Team in the World.

The Satellite programme provides performance-enhancing training for individuals, not squads. Competition takes place outside the Performance Pathway Programme, in club and school competition.

Athletes identified as having the potential to develop netball skills through the England Netball Performance Pathway are invited to attend screening for the Gloucestershire Satellite Academy.

About the Pathway

U13 Academies

The Satellite Academy is the first step on the England Pathway. County Netball Associations manage and deliver Satellite Academies on behalf of England Netball, delivering about 15 sessions per year.

Qualified and experienced Level 2 coaches should deliver the training programmes set by England Netball. The emphasis in the Satellite Academy is for young netballers to learn how to train on their own, and to understand, experience and practice some of the different components required in a training programme.

U15 Academies

County Netball Associations manage and deliver the County Academies on behalf of England Netball, delivering between 15-30 sessions per year.

Qualified and experienced Level 2 coaches should deliver the training programmes set by England Netball, providing athletes with the support and skill set they need to progress to the next level of the pathway, the Regional Academy.

U17s

Netball Superleague, Yorkshire and London U17 Academies, are located across the country within the NSL clubs, Yorkshire and London Pulse NPL team.

They provide a training and competitive environment for the athletes. Some athletes from this group will also be in the National academy group.

U19s
Roses National Academy

The National Academy operates via centralised and weekend camps, bringing together the best U17 and U19 players in England for extra coaching and training.

It also provides athletes with an opportunity to access similar support services that are available to senior athletes, e.g. individualised strength and conditioning programmes, on-site physiotherapy, performance lifestyle and medical services.

Prior to tours and Netball Europe, U19 and U17 squads will be selected from the National Academy.
