All clubs, players and existing coaches need to be aware that the Level 2 qualification issued before the introduction of the UKCC (The United Kingdom Coaching Certificate) is now no longer recognised by England Netball. Therefore any L2 coach still coaching who has not converted to the new UKCC qualification will not be covered by England Netball’s insurance.
If you are thinking about undertaking a coaching course, there is funding available, so please visit MCNA Coaching, where information regarding funding can also be found. Funding is available to any individuals affiliated to Middlesex to cover the cost of coaching courses if the application is received within 3 months of attending a course.
England Netball have created a fantastic coaching page, including blogs, workshops, videos and other resources so take a look.

As you become a more experienced netball player you will meet more and more players or people interested in starting to play, or improving their existing skills, in netball. New players may want to learn how to play netball from you so a logical step might be to become a coach. It may not even mean that you have to be a very strong player yourself, you just need an ability to teach others to play.
A netball coach can become one of the most rewarding positions within the sport. You can lift teams to the heady heights of national fame or help new players enter netball; you can pass your own enthusiasm for the sport to others and see people develop in fitness and confidence. You will also become highly valued and respected by those you teach.
It may well be that you take responsibility for your own team as coach. Many older players who wish to remain within the netball world take coaching positions so they can share their experience and technical knowledge.
In order to start coaching it is best that you read a coaching manual. If you are interested in coaching qualifications the UKCC help you take the necessary steps to reach your ultimate goal. Contact us if you want to watch qualified coaches coach.
