The Barwon Sports Academy in partnership with Netball Victoria are one of 6 regional academies who offer initial talent identification and pathway support for 13/U, 14/U & in 2021 15/U netballers in our region. Due to the impact of COVID and the restricted training and game time for our local girls, in 2021 we are running trials for the first time.
In 2021 the Barwon Sports Academy is partnering with Netball Victoria to deliver a local netball program to a select group of talented girls aged 13 and under. These are girls born specifically in 2007.
The program will give netballers in the Barwon region the best level of support and education, so that they can given themselves the best opportunity to develop their skills and understandings in order to trial for further opportunities with Geelong Flyers and Netball Victoria zone and state squads.
The Barwon Sports Academy netball program is looking for young athletes who have the potential to develop their fundamental skills through;
A series of technical and tactical skill development sessions
A 15 session strength and conditioning program
A series of wellbeing education session
We are asking local representative coaches, parents and club representatives to promote this opportunity and to encourage girls who fit this category, to register. We are looking for athletes who are talented and aspiring to achieve the higher level with their netball.
