Freya’s netball has improved significantly. She has made new friends and always finishes the session with a smile on her face. The sessions are fun, challenging and everything that Freya needs. She looks forward to the classes. As a parent it’s pleasing to see my daughter enjoying the sport!”

With the culture instilled by Elite Netball Academy, players and coaches in our High-Performance Centres are given the freedom to work in an explorative environment where they can be challenged and comfortable in making errors in order to test their boundaries and be creative with the coaches. 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 several athletes make franchise and pathway programmes for Superleague netball clubs in the UK.
