Coaching and Coach Education

Team Bath’s coaching team is led by Asha Francis. She had three successful playing spells with the Blue & Gold, dating back to the first Super League season, and captained the 2013 title-winning team. She also coached the University of Bath student netball club and was Technical Coach during the 2022 Superleague season before being appointed as Head Coach in the summer of 2022.

The work of the netball coaching team is backed up by expert support from Team Bath’s Physio and Sport Science Centre and the UK Sports Institute.

The netball coaching team works alongside Netball South West and their regional performance pathway coaches.
