Coach Developers

Netball New Zealand (NNZ) acknowledges the increasingly important role that coaches play in the development of players.

With a vision to create a “world-class” coaching environment, the NNZ Coach Development Programme is committed to growing and developing quality coach developers.

Coach developers play a key role in providing formal and informal learning opportunities in a bid to support and respond to coaches’ needs and grow coach capabilities.

Accreditation Framework

The NNZ Coach Development Framework is designed to develop coaching at all levels of the game; from grassroots to elite.

The Framework aligns the development of coaching knowledge and capability to the physical and developmental needs of athletes playing Netball.
