Netball NSW recently supported the 2019 Sports High School Gala Day which took place on Monday 20 May.
Approximately 65 athletes from four Sports High Schools around NSW experienced a fantastic day lead by two 2019 State Team netballers – Luana Aukafolau and Clare Iongi – as well as former NSW Swifts captain and current Waratahs player Abbey McCulloch.
The day began with an inspirational and motivating talk with Aukafolau, Iongi and McCulloch. During this the students were invited to ask questions about their experiences as netball players.
All participants then took part in a high intensity strength and conditioning training sessions with current Swifts S&C coach Johann Ruys followed by specialist coaching sessions and match play.
A positive and fun day, with great learning, was had by all.
