NSW State Teams: 16-19 years (in the year of the program)

Vision: Netball NSW will deliver a nation leading campaign program that commands commitment to Waratah pride. Athletes will be challenged and supported on and off the court to strive toward individual and team success at the National Netball Championships and beyond.

A focus of the Netball NSW State Team program is to establish a positive team culture that emphasises pride in wearing the Waratah. The program balances maximising athlete development on court, personal growth off court and team cohesion in match play. Above all, athletes are encouraged to Enjoy the Challenge

From January to April the twelve athletes selected in each team commit to challenge themselves at two group sessions each week, individual skill development sessions and a structured strength and conditioning program. The culmination of the campaign is representing NSW at the National Netball Championships.
