Delivering the ultimate netball experience, Elite’s netball academies run to an annual plan that is sent to parents at the beginning of the training year. Regular feedback is provided, and players get the chance to demonstrate skills learnt in regular match play sessions and play days with other academy players from around the country.

Elite classes supplement your club/school training programme to help you get the most out of your club/school matches. We focus on four performance pillars – physical, performance, tactical and psychological.

This environment actively encourages research-based learning to develop a well-rounded netball player aiming for future success.

We have a strong reputation for helping players gain a place in school, county, franchise and pathway programmes.
