Leeds Athletic Netball Club (LANC) is a performance netball club. LANC is affiliated to England Netball with Gold CAPS status. 

Leeds has a team of experienced and dedicated coaches led by our Head Coach Maggie Birkinshaw. Maggie is the Assistant Coach of Leeds Rhinos Netball and currently works along side England selectors. Maggie has represented England as part of the Roses team. Many of our coaches play or have had experience of playing at a high level including Premier League and NPL.

The Club is run by a committee of volunteers. Junior squads have dedicated team administrators  (Admins) who contribute to the smooth running of their age groups. 

Leeds Athletic enter tournaments across the country at all age groups and regularly look to source friendly fixtures from teams outside the Yorkshire and Humberside area. 

Our athletes must be ambitious and hard working, we have members on the England Pathway, franchise pathways and county pathways. We also encourage our athletes to learn to umpire and coach which are both valuable and sought after skills.
