Sports Programs Resources | Netball | Talent Pathways

Netball WA, through the North West Netball Region, facilitates an extensive talented pathway program for Under 14’s and Under 17’s.  This pathway starts at club or school teams, and then athletes are selected to join the Town Academy squad with whom they will go on to compete at the Regional Championships.

It is at this level of the program that Garnduwa is most involved working with individual communities to participate in local competitions or carnivals that will provide them with the opportunity to be identified and selected in the Academy squads.

Garnduwa staff are able to provide specialist coaching for players as well as professional development opportunities for community based coaches giving them an insight to training sessions for their teams prior to competing in competitions.

From the championships athletes are selected into the NW Regional Academy and invited to attend a Development Camp which offers selection into the NW Regional Under 17’s or Under 14’s team that compete in Perth at the Academy Cup against other Regional teams.  Athletes have the opportunity to be selected for the State Academy from the Academy Cup and if selected may go into the State Under 17’s or State School Girls squad.
