Netball New Zealand – New Coaching Framework – please read below to find out more about coaching in our centre and the pathway to sucess.
Coaching is for anyone who enjoys netball and genuinely cares about the overall development of the players in their care. It is such a fantastic way to give back to the netball community, whether you are a new coach or a High Performance coach, or whether you are coaching beginner netballers or representative sides. Coaching is not just about improving a player’s physical performance, it’s about the development of the player on a physical and mental way to be a ‘whole’ person. The physical skills players learn may only be used for a few years, but the attitudes and values they develop towards themselves and others will last for a lifetime.
Our Centre works closely with Netball New Zealand (NNZ) & Netball Mainland’s Coach Development Manager to offer player centred, community based coaching courses which extend and develop the knowledge of our coaches at all levels.
If you are new to coaching and want to learn the basics, begin with the online Taking off into Netball Coaching – a Starter Pack for New Coaches (in association with Sport NZ) – it’s free, interactive and takes 30-40 minutes to complete. This is on the Netball New Zealand website: http://www.mynetball.co.nz/community-netball/coaching/information/taking-off-into-netball-coaching.html
We are always looking for new coaches to start a new journey and we have over 115 teams playing each week, and with our Junior Programme numbers on the increase we would love to increase our numbers in coaches too.
If you’ve already begun coaching a team (Junior to Senior), and need information on training activities, tactics and rules, visit our free, online Netball Coaching Toolkit located in the relevant sections within the coaching area on the NNZ My Netball site; http://www.mynetball.co.nz/community-netball/coaching.html
NNZ’s coach accreditation structure is designed to empower coaches to provide high quality coaching to all players. Netball New Zealand run courses through a module format, this accreditation will be optional for coaches; however, it is advisable for those intending to coach at representative level to become accredited. For our representative teams, we endeavour to appoint coaches who have NNZ coach accreditation. See below for more information on what modules we can offer, and how the framework works:

If you would like to see specific topics presented, please contact us. We realise not everyone is wanting to complete the accreditation pathway, but input and feedback of what club coaches would like to see allows us to offer courses specific to your requirements.
