Thunder unveil Performance Pathway Coaching Team

It’s an exciting time for netball and for Manchester Thunder as we launch our new Performance Pathway Programme.

We’re looking to find, inspire and develop the next generation of leading netballers for Thunder, the North West and England.

To achieve this, we have put together what we are confident is an outstanding Performance Pathway Coaching Team to support and nurture these young athletes.

They will be led by Performance Pathway Head Coach Sheonah Forbes under the guidance and direction of Director of Netball Karen Greig.

Speaking about the team, Karen said:

“I am delighted that so many talented coaches from across the region have put themselves forward to be part of our exciting new Performance Pathway Coaching Team. These coaches work with young talent week-in week-out so they know what to look for, how to develop players and support them to be the best they can. With so many young netballers applying to be part of our Pathway, and these brilliant coaches to work with them, the sport has an exciting future in the region.”
