The Netball Victoria Emerging Leaders program is an outstanding opportunity for current netballers, coaches, umpires, volunteers or administrators to build their leadership skills and capacity to contribute to the development of their netball community.
In 2016, the program will run for a duration of six months and include regular online sessions in addition to three face-to-face sessions hosted at Melbourne Vixens home games.
Participants will be required to complete a netball-focused project of their choice to further develop their leadership skills. The project will be tailored specifically to the participant and their current environment.
The program is a great opportunity for personal development, focusing on the following areas:
- Increasing networks within the netball community
- Understanding personal leadership styles
- Understanding the people and community around you
- Improving governance practises within your local netball community
- Fostering a welcoming environment
- Learning to market effectively to your community
The cost of the program is $250 per person and includes tickets to Melbourne Vixens home games that correlate with contact sessions, light refreshments at contact sessions and entry to exclusive Netball Victoria events as listed below.
Scholarships are available and will be awarded per region at the discretion of the Emerging Leaders program organisers. To be eligible for a scholarship, your Association or Club president must nominate you by emailing the following information to Netball Victoria Member and Association Support Coordinator Ellie Trewin by 5pm Thursday 31 March.
