DiSE Coach – Talent and Performance Coach Programme (6 places available)

(Closing date: Friday 22nd September 2023)

The England Netball Player Pathway is evolving; our vision is to have the World’s most successful Player Pathway and to prepare future Roses for the specific demands of international netball to ensure that there is an oversupply of Roses-ready players available for selection and prepare to soar.

The Diploma in Sporting Excellence programme, governed by Sport England, is delivered to 65 performance Athletes each year selected by England Netball not only to progress within the player pathway but it will also help Athletes to develop an extensive range of wider, transferable skills to help them balance the unique challenges around their sporting, social and academic demands. This can greatly assist Athletes in progressing to higher education or employment, either within sport or an alternative career pathway.
