NETBALL PROGRAM

Objectives

The objective of the SWAS Netball Pathway Program is to ready regional netballers for selection into the Netball Victoria Talent Academy, and provide additional support to those who may have already been selected. 

The SWAS program reinforces the NVTA program components of technical and tactical development, athlete well being and physical preparation.


Both programs aim to assist players to reach their potential, provide an avenue towards state and national representation, and provide essential education that is relevant to netball.  Most sessions occur in Warrnambool.
