Designed by Elite Netball Academy, the Schools Award programme is for pupils to learn and develop core netball skills by setting and aiming for personal challenges in a structured, progressive way. We provide all the information and assets you need to make your Schools Award programme a success including certificates so the children’s achievements can be recognised at every level.

The Schools Award programme offers a National standard for netball skills and is structured to encompass all physical skill abilities. All supported by an assessment framework and award certificates on completion of each level. The programme is designed to be incorporated into Physical Education lessons.

The Schools Award programme consists of five levels: Butterfly, Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. Certificates are awarded upon completing each level.
