Changes for 2019-20
Since September 2019, the County and Satellite Netball Academies have been managed by a Talent Management Group which is chaired by Team Bath Netball. This will provide more of a flow between the Pathway. There are set age bands for each stage but there will be flexibility on this depending on training age and skill level.
Satellite Academy – U13
County Academy – U15
Team Bath Hub – 15+
Please get in touch with your local County Netball Association if you would like to trial for Satellite or County.
