England Netball are excited to announce the launch of our Netball Youth Camps (NYC) this summer. When we spoke to junior netballers they told us that they wanted more opportunities to play netball during the summer holidays so we have designed these camps to do just that!
The camps are non-residential holiday camps designed for 9-11 year olds providing ‘Nothing but Netball’; including top quality coaching, fun netball activities and even an opportunity to meet and be inspired by an England player. If you are a junior netball lover (or the parent of one!) these are an unmissable summer holiday activity!

Policy on the Taking and Use of Photographic and Recorded Images of Young People
Tyne and Wear County Netball Association (TWCNA) adopts England Netball’s policy for the taking and use of photographic and recorded images of young people and works in accordance with the following statement:
TWCNA does not wish to prevent parents or other spectators being able to take legitimate photographs or recorded images. Use of recorded images can also be a valuable coaching aid. However, TWCNA is committed to providing a safe environment for young people under the age of 18. Included in this commitment is ensuring that all necessary steps are taken to protect young people from the inappropriate use of their images in resources and media publications, on the Internet, and elsewhere.
Photographic and recorded images can be used as a means of identifying young people if accompanied by personal information. This has the potential to make a young person vulnerable to individuals seeking to ‘groom’ young people for abuse. Additionally, images can be used or adapted for inappropriate use. There is evidence of adapted sporting images being used on websites displaying images of child abuse.
Young coach earmarks 2014 Commonwealth Games as first step for a sport that is thriving despite its lack of Olympic status.
When England's netball coach Anna Mayes was 16 she had one ambition. "I told my mum I wanted to coach England," laughs the 32-year-old. Two years ago Mayes was appointed to that very role, having already worked with the Under 21s, and her approach has yielded phenomenal results. In Mayes' first month England won the world series, and earlier this year her side whitewashed the world champions, Australia, in a 3-0 series win (previously England had only ever beaten Australia twice, in 1981 and in 2010). England remain unbeaten in 2013.
Despite the fact that most of England's players work or study full-time Mayes, herself an autoethnography PhD student, leads a squad that is wholeheartedly professional in its outlook. Players such as the captain, Pamela Cookey, now fit in morning and evening training sessions around their day jobs, in Cookey's case a demanding role as a site services manager working for an aircraft manufacturer. From the outset the Swindon-born coach outlined an unwavering vision of where the sport should be heading. "I wanted to do something in English netball that had never been done before," she says now, "so in 2019 our mission statement is: we want to be world champions."

England Netball (EN) has produced this Guidance to supplement the INF Rules of Netball with some practical application of the Rules, which takes account of legal duties not to discriminate, the duty of care and our objective to establish a safe, fair and inspiring sporting environment that contributes to a high quality participant experience at all times.
This Guidance is provided for everyone involved in Netball including players, coaches and officials. Umpires and Officials must apply the Rules and this guidance is intended to help them apply the rules, in a way which takes account of what may at times seem like conflicting imperatives. They are designed from a common sense and inclusive stand point, and are underwritten by the aim to include as many people in playing netball as possible. This means that consideration may need to be borne in mind which may not be the same for all players, but which are necessary to ensure due regard is given to people’s particular needs, for example, those with particular medical conditions or with cultural needs.
