Netball

The South West Academy of Sports’ Netball  program aims to provide support and training for regionally based athletes. With the aid of Netball Victoria, athletes represent the academy in a broad range of competitions and tournaments throughout the year.

The number one focus for all academy programs is athlete education; part of this in the Netball program is working with local professional coaches and state/national elite coaches.

 Part of the athlete education for netball is sports specific sessions; looking at increasing athletes ability both on and off the court. Our focus is to build the athlete through education and weekly training sessions but to also keep them community minded and build them as future leaders.
