Natasha nets place at Regional Performance Academy

Congratulations to Natasha M who has been offered a part time place at the St. Albans Regional Performance Netball Academy.

Regional Performance Academies provide the ‘daily training environments’ needed for athletes aged U19 and operate year round delivering individualised training for athletes. Regional Performance Academies provide between 6 - 10 hours per week of coaching, forming about half of an athlete’s overall programme which usually consists of between 17-19 hours per week (including strength and conditioning, 3 levels of competition, observation and analysis, coach 1-to-1s). There are up to 20 athletes in each of the Regional Performance Academies, some of whom will also be U19/U17 England Squad Athletes.

Lucy Adams, Head of Netball, said “Natasha will be making the most of this excellent opportunity, training hard and working towards a full time Academy place. This is pathway that will prepare her for the next step; national training and selection.”
