Netball for kids
Our Minis Netball Class provides netball for children of 5 years old and upwards. This netball class is a fun and educational way to introduce your child to netball. Our young netballers enjoy learning new skills, taking part in mini-games, and having fun forming new friendships. Players are split into age groups to maximise engagement and we welcome netball players of all abilities and experience from complete beginners to those who want extra netball to sit alongside their child’s school and club training.
In these netball classes for kids, we work on ball-handling skills, footwork drills, movements skills, team building, netball rules and fun gameplay.
Our Minis netball classes for kids happen every Saturday during term time at Gateways School near Leeds.

We all know in sport how important it is to have solid fundamentals to build on.

Netball classes for teenagers
Emerging Talent Hub
Our Emerging Talent Hub (ETH) is for netball players who love to play the game regularly or for those who are keen to improve and progress their netball knowledge. These are quality sessions aimed to upskill players and provide opportunities to players without the 2.5 hours of commitment needed in our High-Performance Centre.
This netball class for teenagers takes place at The Grammar School at Leeds for athletes between 14 and 17 years old. The Emerging Talent Hub is for netball players of all abilities and experience.
Our ETH shows an understanding of different players’ learning styles and physical developments by providing an enjoyable, safe and secure learning environment where growth and development can take place. Every week we cover a different netball theme, including technical skills and unit work in attack and defence, ball and movement skills, gameplay situations and understanding how strength and conditioning plays a huge part in a players’ development. We also allow the opportunity to practice these new skills in games during each class.
“Millie has really enjoyed the weekly classes, they have vastly improved her ability and skills. The classes and activities have really kept her motivated during lockdown. I am sure she will be returning to school and club netball at a much higher standard. Many thanks to all the brilliant Elite Netball Academy coaching team and staff.”Jo, Emerging Talent Hub parent
