Enjoy the Challenge

Netball NSW administers the Sydney Netball Academy. The Program is focused on facilitating individual growth in technical skills, netball IQ and fundamental movement patterns as well as introducing athletes and umpires to the benefits of strength and conditioning, psychology, nutrition and recovery.

Sessions are held in two blocks from January – April and July – September. The break allows athletes to focus on their representative programs. The group of athletes and umpires are divided into mentor groups which not only encourages close bonds to be forged with their mentor coach, but also provides leadership opportunities for athletes and umpires.

Highlights of the Sydney Netball Academy calendar include travelling with new friends to the Academy Games and Academy Challenge and attending the Academy Camp.

To be eligible for Sydney Netball Academy athletes must be turning 15 ot 16 in 2022 and MUST live in one of the local government areas listed HERE.
