You will be working with the guidance of the Severn Stars Head Coach and the EN pathway Head Coach with opportunities for professional development in both environments. The core purpose of this role is to head the performance pathway through leading, managing and systematically preparing players both on and off the court for performance competitions with the aim of developing future Roses who are equipped to be World Class players; striving for excellence and living and breathing a ‘Netball First’ culture.
