Funded by UK Sport, and delivered by England Netball in partnership with the International Netball Federation, NET2019 aims to provide coaching advice and facilitated netball sessions to empower women and girls through the power of netball and the legacy of the Netball World Cup 2019.
The ambition is global but the scheme is placing an emphasis on two key territories, Africa and South America – continents where netball is rapidly gaining influence. Predominantly NET2019’s work is centred in Zambia and Argentina. Here it is working with each of the country’s netball associations to develop the provision of netball at grassroots levels, whilst also supporting the development of talent and high performance programmes, proven to raise the profile of the sport within their communities.
Whilst efforts in South America are concentrating on grassroots development, in Zambia NET2019 is working directly with the national side and its coaches, aiding the development of their high performance coaching, as well as developing links between charity groups focused on community development, lobbying support across government, sports councils and other charities.q
England Netball Coach, Danielle Lewis Collins, is leading the first Zambian project from 9-12 July 2018, working with the team prior to, and during the Africa Championships. The African Championships take place from 13-18 August 2018 and will be the region’s qualifying tournament for the Netball World Cup 2019. Zambia will be supported throughout the event by England Netball, both on location and via distance mentoring, and NWC2019 will be inviting two Zambian coaches to attend the World Cup for demonstrating progress through the programme.
The legacy project began in October 2017 and will see an overall investment of £90,000 over the three years, building towards the Netball World Cup in 2019.
