U15 Netball Performance Competition

England Netball introduced the U15 Netball Performance Competition in 2019 which saw VNSL franchises and invited teams compete to enable a high performance competition, whilst developing appropriate skills and experience both on and off the court to help them adapt to a performance environment.

England Netball joined up with the Youth Sport Trust (YST) to work on a new programme, helping to prepare the next generation of elite athletes.

Supported by Sport England Lottery Funding, the YST and England Netball put on an educational programme to run alongside the competition. This included workshops on key topics that athletes may face in their journey to become professional netballers.

The programme also encompassed workshops for the athletes’ families and support network to help them understand what it takes and the encouragement they will require in their netball career.

The U15 Netball Performance Competition took place at Wolverhampton University between 30th August – 1st September.

The competition was streamed on the England Netball YouTube channel, which can be found here.

Congratulations to Manchester Thunder on taking the title!
