Sisters n Sport have been running programmes and netball camps in Switzerland since 2012.
After coaching both the Swiss U17 and Open squads – Sisters n Sport founders Victoria and Jen were approached to run a programme to support netball clubs in the region – helping to develop players and coaches.
The Sisters n Sport Netball Player Development Programme is open to all players looking to improve individual skills, increase their knowledge of the game and their tactical awareness to improve their match play. It is designed to complement club and school netball training; all players are pushed to reach their full potential. It gives players more opportunity to improve their current skill level, whilst developing their decision making skills during match play in a non-competitive environment where the focus isn’t on selection but on improving the individual.
Our programme combines technical and tactical coaching with fitness conditioning to improve individual technique, tactics and match fitness that will look to work alongside their school/club training.
Typical Programme Content
- Speed, agility and conditioning for netball players
- Attacking and defending movement skills
- Technical court sessions
