In 2016, Kennedy was one of the first athletes to be offered a full time England contract and was the first North Eastern born and bred player to make her senior international cap in over ten years. Whilst training and playing full time Kennedy created Net Gains to be able to share her knowledge gained from the international coaches such as Tracey Neville, Tearoha Keenan, Kate Carpenter and Lisa Stanley- Craig she has been lucky enough to play for.
Kennedy is a level 2 netball coach currently coaching the netball programme at Dame Allan’s School and GALs Netball club. She has also been doing some defence coaching at Team Northumbria NSL. Net Gains offers several netball services to meet the clients needs including netball sessions, masterclasses, session plans and coaching workshops. We currently have dates available throughout May, June and the beginning of July.
If you wish to have Leah Kennedy come into your club providing a service to encourage and inspire your netballers, please do not hesitate to get in contact for further information.
