Academies are for athletes aged between 14 and 17 who are exposed to weekly training in a high-performance environment. They are also competing to be part of Surrey Storm’s Under 17 team that will compete against other franchises throughout the year, as well as at the end-of-season NPL tournament.

Our congratulations go to every athlete who has been awarded a place in our Academy and NPL squads.

We are delighted to be working with all of our fantastic coaches and players, and wish everybody a successful season!
