Coaching

Swiss Netball believes that excellence in coaching is key to our development, is fundamental to the progression of the sport in our country and essential for our athletes.

In recognition of this, we are finalising a Swiss Netball Coaching course, written in conjunction with Dr. Anita Navin and Nicky Fuller, specifically for you, our clubs, players, teams, and coaches, within the guidelines of the Federal Swiss sports body Jeunesse et Sport. This will give Swiss Netball a Federal Swiss coaching qualification.

If you have the motivation and passion for Netball or women's sports and would be interested in supporting Swiss Netball in this field, we would love to hear from you.
