Coaching is a thoroughly rewarding endeavour. People undertake it for numerous reasons such as, to give back to their club/school, to help players develop as netballers and people, for their own self-development/achievement, and for the love of our skilled and exciting game!
There are opportunities to coach at all levels in Dunedin Netball. These range from Year 1 right through to representative teams such as the Dunedin Open or Under 18 teams.

A framework that enables parents who are new to netball to grow in confidence with their children. Parents start off as a Star Helper, assisting in running skill development and game play in our Year 1/2 Programme. In the Year 3/4 Programme you move into a coach position where you have more leadership in sessions, but still with support. Come ages 5/6 you have full leadership of the team, and coaching skills which have blossomed across the Year 1-4 Junior Programme
Dunedin Netball are also starting to build capability in the Coach Developer space to enable more coach support
