The program offers netballers of all abilities the opportunity to participate in an academy program where they will be taught a variety of netball-specific skills in a 'high performance-style' environment.

Areas covered include:

  • Technical skill development, including area/positional specific coaching

  • Match play and video analysis
  • Netball specific testing
  • Take home program

Participants will be placed in small squads who will then work with accredited and experienced coaches for the duration of the program. Squads will be determined on age as well as ability level.

The program has been developed using the Netball Australia Core Curriculum of Skills matrix and will focus on the six skill areas as identified by Netball Australia - Movement Skills, Ball Skills, Attacking Skills, Defending Skills, Shooting Skills and Strategies.
