Netball NSW announced in 2014 the establishment of the South East Region Netball Academy (SERNA) as part of the Regional Academies of Sport (RAS) Netball Program.

The RAS netball program, which is delivered by ten Academies throughout the State, as well as the Sydney Netball Academy and now the South East Region Netball Academy, is a priority for the Netball NSW High Performance program and offers the following;

  • Individual skill development, sport science education and support structures for each athlete to easily integrate to the next level of the NSW elite athlete pathway
  • Access to the Develop a Diamond Academy Program by Netball Australia
  • Preparation of athletes for NSW State Team trials
  • Coach and umpire education, promoting continuous improvement to develop the region’s coaches and umpires
  • A program which concentrates on the well-being of each athlete to make sure they have a life/sport balance
