2018 Sydney Netball Academy Squad Announced

The following players have been selected as part of the Sydney Netball Academy Squad for 2018.

The playing group will take part in 10 training sessions focusing on technical, tactical, physical and well being.

Players will represent SNA in the Academy Challenge and AIYG Games and will take part in a High Performance Weekend Workshop.

“Congratulations to girls selected in the SNA Squad,” Margaret Hamley, State Pathways Manager at Netball NSW, said.

“To those of you who have not been named you should feel proud of being selected to trial. Selectors were enormously impressed at the skill and excited by the potential that you all displayed throughout the process.

“If you have missed selection, it’s important to  remember that just because you’ve experienced a setback now, it doesn’t mean you won’t be successful in the future.

“You are at the beginning of your netball journey, keep focused on your goals, believe in yourself and talk with your coach or a mentor about a program to help you work toward your goals.”
