Well done to both Northants JMs and Rutland Rockets at the Under 16’s tournament – both teams have qualified to go to Nationals - fantastic news
The County Netball Academy Programme is part of England Netball's "Netball First Performance Pathway". The aim of the pathway is to facilitate the progression through the Pathway of those athletes who demonstrate the potential to do so. Further information on the pathway can be found Here!
Essentially the County Academies are for players who are of an excellent netball standard and have the potential to improve into a performance athlete. The County Academy programmes focus on quality and not quantity, providing performance-enhancing training for the individual, not squads. Competition is seen as valuable but is delivered outside the Netball First Pathway programme in club local/ regional leagues and tournaments.
County Academies will provide an opportunity for players to be seen by the Regional Talent ID Scout, and potentially the opportunity to move up the England Netball pathway ladder into the regional development squads.
