Introduction to the Regional Academy
Wales Netball aspires to create a sustainable over-supply of athletes via its Performance Pathway for its National Squads. Regional Academies are the first step on our Performance Pathway and are vital to ensuring success at all levels. Our Regional Academy model is skills and values focused, and as such Wales Netball supports the Regional Academy Coaches to continue to develop themselves, as well as guiding performance activity within Regional Academies, to ensure consistency. Regional Academy coaches focus on developing young athletes in line with the ‘Welsh Way’ focusing on a curriculum of skill development – allowing us to ensure that we develop athletes who have the requisite skills and attributes to transition smoothly into our National Academy and Wales age group squads.
