Bespoke courses using the WSLA brand and concept have also been delivered under licence with the following organisations: Netball Scotland, the New Zealand Olympic Committee, the South African Women and Sport Foundation, the University of Hertfordshire, Women and Sport Botswana, and the Zimbabwe Olympic Committee.
