Jersey Netball is hugely appreciative to their sponsor, Dominion in association with the One Foundation, for enabling Team Jets to participate in this league and travel to England for away matches. In addition, Team Jets U14s have had a fantastic season qualifying for Regional and subsequent National U14 Club finals at Bath University, where the promising young netballers achieved a National 7th place finish. Furthermore, in line with the England Netball pathway, talented netballers are selected into the PwC Netball Satellite and Academy County squads. The girls range from 12 to 16 years old. The Academy is linked to Bath University and we welcome top coaches to the Island to deliver sessions to the girls.

The league runs from September to March and consists of 12 junior teams across two divisions.

Going forward, Jersey Netball will continue to develop all netball programmes. Plans are in place to hold a UKCC Level 1 Coaching Course in early 2013 and further umpiring and coaching workshops are scheduled in addition to a mentoring programme for umpires and coaches to offer support and CPD opportunities.


Jersey Netball will continue to support Team Jets in Regional League 1.


If Jets continue to


progress they will be placed in Premier League 3, which is the first rung of the National English league. The talented U14 Team Jets squad are now competing in the South West U16 League in England, where if they are successful, they will continue to U16 Regional and then National finals. In addition, five netballers have been selected to be involved in the One Foundation’s Sport’s Institute for Talented Athletes programme.
