In light of the current and ongoing Coronavirus situation, England Netball has taken the decision to suspend the next CAPS assessment during June 2020.
This decision will mean that some clubs will be unable to submit their information in time to re-accredit in line with the CAPS accreditation timescales.
England Netball has also taken the decision to extend the accreditation of all those clubs who were due to re-accredit from 1st March 2020 – 30th June 2020 by 6 months. We will directly contact all those clubs who are affected by this and if you are unsure of the expiry date of your CAPS accreditation, please do make contact with your regional office who will happily advise you of this.
During this time, we know many clubs may take the opportunity to update areas of their CAPS accreditation in readiness for future assessment dates, hopefully in the autumn. Our network of Netball Development Officers are able to help and support you through this as fully as possible. There are a small number of elements that are unable to be completed or updated at this point due to the suspension of all netball activity, these include;
- DBS checks – find out more here.
- Site visits
- Coach and umpire courses and qualifications
We will continue to review the situation and clarify if there need to be any further changes in line with Government guidance as soon as possible.
In addition England Netball have set up a web page with a range of information specifically for clubs to help support you through the current situation.
