Netball Academy

The Netball Academy at Ivybridge Community College strives in our ethos to help develop all individuals to reach their potential, both on and off the court.  We work towards this in a team environment, from elite through to our development, and are providing a ‘Netball for all’ atmosphere.  We strive to create a warm and friendly environment where members can develop their skills and confidence both individually and as part of a team.


We believe a strong team requires not just sporting ability but commitment, dedication and respect for others.


The Netball Academy wants their players to continue their passion for their sport throughout their life through playing socially, at an elite level and/or coaching and officiating.
