The purpose and vision of the Netball Mainland Youth Advisory Group is to guide the youth by being their voice on aspects of netball concerning them. We inform and consult with other groups to find solutions to challenges involving our youth, and creating opportunities for them.  We aim to share our passion for netball, to enable others to experience the same.
