County U13 Player Development Programme

This is the first entrance into the Performance Pathway and the focus is on individual development. This stage coincides with peak motor learning, therefore athletes are learning how to train and develop the skills of netball. They are also learning the basic technical/tactical skills, and ancillary capacities including:

  • Warm up and cool down
  • Stretching
  • Hydration and nutrition
  • Recovery
  • Relaxation and focusing

Although the focus is on the training and skill development, competition should be used to test and refine skills. The training to competition ratio is 75% to 25%. Athletes should be competing in appropriate club (county and regional leagues) and school competition.
