2019 Netball Program 

The 2019 Netball Program commenced in December 2018 with an Induction for over 50 Netballer’s. Following the success of last years program we have again divided the program into the Dare to Develop a Diamond (DDAD) Program and a Development Program.

The DDAD will provide development for potential Netball Victoria Eastern Talent Academy athletes transitioning into the 15/U age group. The focus will be on developing the athlete’s potential for selection into the next level of pathway development, Netball Victoria Eastern Talent Academy, which feeds into the State Team.

The Development program will deliver a shorter program to enhance the skills of athletes with the view for these athletes to be eligible for the DDAD program the following year.
