Academy Netballer’s Unite

Over the weekend the Illawarra Academy of Sport’s Netball Squad travelled up to Genea Netball Centre in Sydney Olympic Park, the home to the Western Sydney Academy of Sport’s Netball Program. The South Coast and Western Sydney netballers came together to learn new skills, refine techniques and gain some expert insights into how to give themselves the best chance at getting to the top!

The day kicked off with an education session in Nutrition by Motivation Nutrition as a part of the new ClubsNSW Athlete Education Program. Athletes learnt the best methods and techniques to appropriately fuel your body and get the best possible results on the court.

After the arrival of our Illawarra Academy friends, both squads took the court for a skills session and a match play session facilitated by coaches from both Academies.

To finish off the day Netball NSW State Pathways Manager Margaret Hamley, gave the girls some insight into the athlete pathway for netballers in New South Wales.

A very informative and effective day for all of our netball ladies!
