Kent Netball Academies

Kent Netball Academies are a fundamental part of the England Netball (EN) Pathway and form part of the talent identification process. The academy programmes focus on quality and not quantity, providing performance enhancing training for individuals, not squads. 


Kent Netball delivers U13 and U15 Academies, the first steps on the Performance Pathway, which aim to provide training to athletes aged between 12 and 15 who are identified as having potential for progressing up the pathway.
