PLAYER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS
We run a number of Player Development programmes in the off-season. We cover Fitness, Skills & Drills
These programmes have been very successful and grown every year – this is run in 4 age groups – Yr 5 & 6 Junior Academy, Yr 7 & 8 HeadStart, U14 & 15 Player Development and U17 & 19 Strength & Conditioning
We are a very dedicated Centre towards our umpires and are proud to run a successful Umpires Development Group last season that is in place again this season and now moving along well. Our centre is very lucky to have the caliber of umpires we have and it’s looking like we have some young ones to add to the list again this season.
This year we have an U17 team competing at Nationals.
We also have 1 x U15 team and 2 x U14 team competing in the Netball Mainland Cluster competition in Ashburton at Queens Birthday Weekend. A huge amount of work goes in behind the scenes with Representative teams and we are grateful to have a team of experienced coaches, management and volunteers to support our teams.
We run a social summer competition on Monday nights over the Summer from October through to March – all teams are mixed and we have grades from social up to Premier. The 2018-19 season commences Monday 8th October – for more info please visit: http://www.ncnc.org.nz/netball/twilight-netball
