Hertfordshire Performance Academies are for players U13 and U15 and are selected into the Academies through a trial process which are held annually. County Academies provide training sessions with qualified and experience Level 2 Coaches providing athletes with the support and skill set they need to progress to the next level of the Pathway. Strength and Conditioning work is also important for this level and age group of athletes to ensure that muscles are developed properly to prevent injury and to prepare them for a greater intensity of training as they progress their netball careers.

Coaches this season are:

  • Emily Drackford - Performance Lead and U15 head coach
  • Chloe Bassett -  New Assistant Coach and Queenswood PE teacher 
  • Natasha Cobbhold - U13 Head coach
  • Chloe Hart - Assistant Coach

We are also excited to have working with us this season Hertford Hornets Coach Samantha Turner and Queenswood PE teacher Akeisha Lawrence.

We are continuing to work with Piotr from Prime Coaching, who is delivering the athletes strength and conditioning programme. 

This year we are looking forward to working with all the athletes helping them progress to be a better all rounded netball player.
