Our Cardiff University Netball Development Centre offers skilled primary and secondary school-aged players the chance to develop their talents through technical training and matches throughout the season.

Cardiff University Sport is pleased to announce its partnership with Cardiff & the Vale Local Authority (LA) Hub

Our programme helps to develop and nurture talented netballers within the progressive and accessible Welsh Netball Development Pathway.

Trial process

Trials take place in October, and from these, players for both the LA Hub (Cardiff and the Vale) and Cardiff University Netball Development Centre squads will be selected. 

Successful trialists 

Players selected for Development Centre squads will train at the facilities at Cardiff University Sports Training Village.

The Junior Netball Development programme, encompassing players from school Year 2 to Year 10, is delivered over 21 weekly sessions between November and May.

Squad members will receive quality coaching from qualified and experienced coaches. The key focus for coaches is player development, concentrating on areas such as technical skills and tactical elements of play.
