Athletes put to the test at Train Like a Swift Clinic

Over 95 girls aged 12-16 years-old flocked to the Genea Netball Centre this week to participate in the fourth running of the NSW Swifts’ Train Like a Swift Clinic.

Participants took part in one, two or all three days of fun-filled activity from Tuesday 17 to Thursday 19 January, led by the Swifts players and support staff.

The sessions covered more than just the basics and gave the participants insight in the Club’s elite environment.

Whether they were practicing their defensive skills with Club Captain Abbey McCulloch, being put through their paces with a Swiftness test or getting a nutritional lesson in the classroom, the participants were exposed to what it takes to become a NSW Swift.

And for the first time the Train Like a Swift Clinic incorporated a Mental Health and Cyber Bullying seminar which proved to be a hit with all taking part.

Whilst enjoying their time learning from some of the best in the business, including Swifts Head Coach Rob Wright, McCulloch, Maddy Turner, Sarah Klau, Maddy Proud, Amy Sommerville and Samantha Wallace, there was also plenty of time for everyone to pose for a quick selfie.

Here is a snapshot of some of the action across the three days.
