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.
England Netball offers a range of courses and grants to support coaches taking their qualifications. Most clubs are also keen to have extra pairs of hands to help out with junior and senior coaching sessions, so why not offer to help with your club to get a taste of coaching!
