Saracens Mavericks are delighted to announce a new partnership with Oaklands Wolves Netball Academy. 

This partnership will enable the talented athletes and coaches at Oaklands the opportunity to learn from our players and coaches to reach their full netball potential.

Oaklands College, in association with Saracens Mavericks and the University of Hertfordshire, has developed the Oaklands Wolves Netball Academy which provides an outstanding educational opportunity combining both academic and sporting performance with a high quality educational and sporting environment.

The programme is aimed at talented netball players aged 16 and over who are already playing at a good standard and are committed to improving their netball skills and abilities, while gaining further academic qualifications by studying on a variety of academic programmes, including A levels or BTECs.

It is based at the St Albans Campus and enables players to combine daily netball coaching sessions with their academic studies. 

The player focused programme encourages student athletes to improve as individuals and as team players, to develop their game knowledge and understanding and equally importantly, complete an appropriate academic course of study.

Saracens Mavericks Director of Netball Kat Ratnapala says “Oaklands has been our training home for a number of years and we are thrilled to welcome them to the Saracens Mavericks family. Working alongside their talented coaches, we are excited about what this new partnership will bring and look forward to the opportunities ahead”
