Budding Swifts learn from the best

Young netballers from across New South Wales came together at Netball Central last week to learn from some of their favourite NSW Swifts at the ‘Train Like a Swift’ clinics.

More than 110 girls aged between 6 and 16-years-old learnt from famous Swifts’ faces such as Abbey McCulloch, Julie Corletto and Caitlin Thwaites… even Head Coach Rob Wright shared his expertise with the budding netballers!

The clinics were held from Wednesday 14 to Friday 16 January, with sessions including specialist shooting and defending drills, agility testing with NSWIS Strength and Conditioning Head Coach Jason Howell, as well as theory sessions on goal setting and visualisation plus video analysis using footage Rob Wright said the Swifts’ players hadn’t even seen yet!

Check out some of the highlights from across the three days in the NSWSwiftsTV video below:
