New Player Development Programme and Futures squads mean nearly 100 aspiring netballers now benefit from Team Bath coaching

Team Bath Netball have named three additional squads designed to help retain and develop more talent from across the South West, as well as provide a link between NPL and Super League squads.

The Player Development Programme (PDP) is split into two squads, Junior for U17s and Senior for U19s, while the Team Bath Futures squad – featuring a host of University of Bath students and graduates – is for U23 players who have progressed beyond the U21 age group.

They will play a number of matches during the season, with the Futures players also providing training opposition for the Super League squad.

The PDP and Futures squads complement the U17, U19 and U21 NPL squads, meaning that nearly 100 young netballers are benefitting from high-quality training and competition with Team Bath this season.

Natalie Roddy, Team Bath’s Academy Head Coach, said: “These squads are an exciting addition to our programme. They really demonstrate the amount of talent within our pathway now and for the future.”
