Coaches play a vital role in the sport of Netball through their interaction with their athletes, support staff, parents and supporters. Coaches provide a safe environment for their players which leads to and builds on skill development, tactical awareness, teamwork and enjoyment of the game. The role of the coach is imperative to the continued success of the game and athletes from the grassroots program (ANZ NetSetGO) to the elite level (ANZ Championship & Australian Diamonds).
Netball Australia (NA) in conjunction with their Member Organisation’s (MO’s) are committed to providing education, development and resources for coaches at all levels to increase their knowledge and understanding of the game. It is also important that coaches are valued for their role and enjoy a fun and rewarding experience along their coaching pathway.
Netball Australia intends to drive and develop a structured netball coaching community over the next 12 – 24 months, allowing the opportunity for coaches at all levels to interact and learn with, and from, each other. Keep your eye out for any updates to the NA coaching website during this time.
Good luck with your coaching and thank you for playing a pivotal role within the sport.
