In order to maintain the progression and performance of our young athletes in a supportive and encouraging environment, we have set up two pathways for players who join Crosskeys.

The purpose of both pathways is to allow athletes to feel safe and secure in their training environment, build confidence in their skills and understanding of the game and support player development no matter the athletes skill or experience level.

All players are welcome at Crosskeys and are invited to join at any part of the year. Players will initially be invited to join our Development Pathway* where they can look to develop their skills and understanding and progress into the performance pathway.

* Some players will be eligible to join Performance Pathway first pending on a trial and conversation with coach


It is our ambition to compete in the Junior National Championships run by England Netball in both the U16 and U14 Age group categories each season. It is an opportunity for our club to compete against the top 16 clubs within the country to gain a National Title.

Our Regional squads are selected from a trial in March and will then complete extra training sessions with our designated regional coaches in preparation for the competition.
