Netball is an ever growing sport, and as participation increases, so does the need to develop high quality coaches at all levels and all abilities.

The England Netball coaching pathway offers a range of qualifications and workshops, allowing volunteers to fulfil their coaching potential.

Together with local sports partnerships (in Bedfordshire's case, Team Beds&Luton), they are delivering technical netball qualification courses and UKCC certification, as well as more generic welfare courses.
