"To challenge each individual netballer to improve through providing the highest quality of technical, tactical, physical and psychological support"


The performance Objective within Netball Scotland's Strategic Plan (Polaris) is to "Field Successful international Teams". Success for our National Team, the Scottish Thistles, will be to be ranked within the "Top six teams in world by 2020". To achieve this objective, Netball Scotland has produced an Athlete Development Framework - Make it R.E.A.L. outlining the process for identifying and developing players from grassroots through to elite performance programmes. This plan is supported by the Make it R.E.A.L. Guidlines and the Make it R.E.A.L. Resource Packs. 


This plan will be regularly reviewed, refreshed and revised to ensure progress is achieved and content is current.
