Netball New Zealand (NNZ) recently announced the athletes selected in the 2017/18 Pathway to Podium (P2P) squad, three of them being from Netball Mainland.    

P2P is a talent development programme run in partnership with Sport New Zealand, High Performance Sport New Zealand and delivered through 14 regional talent hubs across the country and includes athletes who are not otherwise participating in Netball NZ development or representative teams.

These regional hubs, like the HPSNZ Apollo Projects Centre in Christchurch (home of the Silvermoon Tactix), provide access to facilities and training close to the netballer’s home, family and peer support. 

The P2P programme provides support and guidance in areas such as performance planning, training regimes, mental skills training, strength and conditioning, and nutrition.
