Satellite and County Academy Screening

Satellite and County Academies form the bottom two tiers of the England Performance Pathway and are managed and delivered through a partnership between England Netball and the County Netball Association.

If you are a teacher or club coach, please make use of the online video resource and downloads below to help inform yourself of the attributes and characteristics we are looking for in our athletes on the pathway. Following this, if you feel there are players at your school or club who demonstrate these, please contact your County Netball Association for information on local screening events.

Training and Support

England Netball has developed two resources/workshops in order to support this work.

  • Trained Identifiers: Identifying players using a game-centred approach. A free online video resource is available to help club coaches and teachers identify the range of attributes and characteristics we are looking for in the England Performance Pathway when nominating players to attend Satellite or County Academy screening events.
  • Scouting Workshop: Scouts are responsible for seeking and identifying potential athletes for the Performance Pathway. This workshop seeks to train new and existing scouts. For information on a workshop running in your area, please contact your Regional Coordinator.
