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.
Trials are generally held in October, and a group of athletes and umpires are selected from within the designated council boundaries to take part in the Program for 1 year.
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 48 athletes is divided into mentor groups which not only encourages close bonds to be forged with their mentor coach, but also provides leadership opportunities for athletes.
Highlights of the Sydney Netball Academy calendar include travelling with new friends to the Academy Games and Academy Challenge and meeting SSN superstars at the Emerging Talent Camp.
