Performance netball programme

St Andrews offers students a world-leading academic education alongside a professionally run player-centred performance netball programme.

Led by full time Director of Netball Sally Sandison, we aim to deliver the very best support and a comprehensive programme of training and competition to enable our top players to harness their full potential and achieve sporting and academic excellence whilst studying at St Andrews.

Through the key principles of hard work, commitment and constant self-improvement, we seek to build resilience within the programme, whilst providing an environment to help our players excel and develop as ambassadors for the sport of netball.

Scholarships are aimed at players who are already competing at a high level and who believe they have the necessary attributes to be part of a performance netball programme whilst studying for their degree in St Andrews.

With world-class facilities, highly experienced coaches, and a comprehensive support programme, you’ll have access to a professional netball environment that provides all you will need to take your game and your education to the highest level as part of the truly unique student experience.
