    The aim of the Talented Netball Program is to provide an opportunity for talented students to train, compete and gain knowledge and experience in the game of netball. It is designed to produce the highest quality of team and individual performances.

     

    Courses Offered

    Year 7/8 Sport Enrichment is an introduction to the program where basic skills will be enhanced and the techniques to perform these skills will be studied.

    Year 9/10 Applied Sport Studies is an elective subject chosen for study over two years as a component for the School Certificate. Students will look to begin the development of more advanced skills and specific court strategies will begin to be implemented. This course also involves theoretical aspects of netball including coaching, umpiring, media skills and aspects of elite performance including the plotting of player pathways.

    Year 11/12 Applied Sport Studies focuses on enhancing the court strategies initiated in Year 9/10 and further developing more whole court team strategies.

     

    Course Structure

    All squads will be given all the consideration of talented sports persons and will concentrate on fitness, skill development and teamwork. Year 7/8 Sport Enrichment and Year 9/10 Applied Sport will operate two double periods per week. Year 11/12 Applied Sport Studies will operate on one afternoon per week and members will also be required to attend at least one strength and conditioning session per week.
