Primary Schools

BRING NETBALL BACK! is Netball Ireland’s introductory Programme to bring netball back into Irish schools.

The BRING NETBALL BACK! Programme will provide schools with a completely FREE 6-week coaching course to introduce national school children and teachers to the sport of netball, ensuring enjoyment and participation.

The Programme will deliver 6 x 40 minute free coaching sessions delivered over a 6 week period. Your school will be assigned with 1 fully accredited and fully insured netball coach who will come into your school to deliver the coaching sessions. Netball Ireland will work with your school to mutually agree dates and times to deliver the 6 coaching sessions.

Netball Ireland will also supply your school with all equipment needed to deliver the Programme. This will include 2 x netball posts, 10 netballs, 1 ball bag, 2 sets of netball bibs, which we will leave in the schools possession for the duration of the Programme. This Equipment is available to purchase at a hugely reduced rate.

Through your designated coaches, we will be able to provide your school with support and advice for your continued participation within the sport after the coaching course. Availability of the programme is subject to resources. The programme is currently available in the Dublin and Cork areas.

The BRING NETBALL BACK! Programme is always looking for volunteers to assist with this valuable project, please contact Clare if you can assist in some way.
