Coaching Special

Episode 15,   May 05, 09:50 AM

This special episode of Courtside gives listeners an insight into the world of coaching netball, from grassroots to the Netball Super League (NSL) and the Vitality Roses.

The episode begins with Lindsey Chapman speaking to England Netball’s Performance Pathway Coach Developer Sarah Green and Coaching Project Manager Lucy Lawrence all about their work in the world of coaching. They discuss the coaches that have inspired them along the way, as well as their excitement for the future of netball coaching in England at all levels.

From growing an inclusive community coach network to supporting our next generation of NSL and England coaches to develop, this chat shines a light on all the important work being done in this space, and even reveals which of your favourite NSL athletes are developing their coaching skillsets early!

Next, Lindsey catches up with Loughborough Lightning Head Coach Vic Burgess and takes a deep dive into the coaching philosophy that has brought her significant on-court success in the NSL. Vic shares her journey into coaching, the challenges she has experienced as well as her coaching highlights and her belief in the importance of driving a culture of belonging beyond the court to build personal connections within her team.
