Athlete Development Centres

Team Bath Netball have a proud history of developing young netballers into Superleague and international players.

The Team Bath Futures Pathway is made up of Athlete Development Centres (ADC) that run across the South West, allowing nearly 200 aspiring netballers – aged from 14 to 18 – to benefit from top-class coaching plus lifestyle and sports science support.

We are delighted to announce that we have increased the opportunities for players to be involved in our elite training environment and now have an Athlete Development Centre in each county across the South West.

Natalie Roddy is the Academy Head Coach with overall responsibility for the Development Programme. The programme is then delivered at each of the centres by a network of talented regionally-based coaches, carefully recruited by Team Bath Netball.
