Leeds Rhinos Netball proudly presents our two-day conference, open to all coaches working in a performance capacity regionally or nationally, or who are aspiring to enter this level of coaching to educate the performance players of tomorrow.


Conference background and objectives

Netball in the UK has entered a new era, with participation in our sport reaching unprecedented heights and performance very much on the increase. Across our region, coaches require regular education to remain knowledgeable on successful coaching methods and give athletes the best possible assistance.

Our two-day conference has been developed to bestow coaches with the tools necessary to support performance athletes on their journey. Throughout the event, a number of successful performance coaches – including our very special guests, Sue Hawkins and Jill McIntosh – will share their knowledge and experience of performance coaching, empowering coaches with the skills to proceed onward and teach their own players with increased know-how and confidence.
