England Netball recently launched its new Roses Development Framework, which has been created to further support the development of athletes.
To share the principles and ideas of the Roses Development Framework, we are running a number of workshops across the country for franchises, clubs, counties, satellite coaches and parents to attend.
The workshops will:
- Introduce the concept of the Framework in relation to supporting the developing athlete and their support network
- Explore and conceptualise the idea of managing load with developing athletes, whilst highlighting the repercussions when overloaded
- Highlight the development of movement competencies and discuss what this could mean in practice
- Discuss the principles of an effective warm up and impact this can have on injury and performance, plus more.
Thomas Smith, Performance Pathways Scientist from the English Institute of Sport, who is supporting England Netball with the development of the Roses Development Framework, said: “The aim of the Roses Development Framework is to enable more athletes to progress through the netball Performance Pathway. There are a number of areas that England Netball believe are vital in helping the development of an athlete, which the Framework supports.
“We aim to work with coaches, athletes and their support network, to empower them in creating an environment that supports the development of identified skills and behaviours. We hope that this session is informative and interactive for everyone that attends, and supports their own coaching or home environments.”
Vladan Dragosavac, Performance Pathway Manager at England Netball, added: “This Framework is key to ensuring we give athletes the best chance of achieving their potential and giving their supporters the tools they need to help them get there.
“We have been working on this Framework tirelessly and are excited to be sharing it and our findings through these exciting workshops. We have already had great interest in the sessions so can’t wait to get started.”
