Netball Victoria’s High Performance Programs link closely with the Victorian Institute of Sport and aims to enable identified athletes to reach their full potential through the provision of innovative and progressive development opportunities.

In 2018, Netball Victoria will continue with the NV Talent Squad identifying athletes providing developmental and specialist training opportunities through a three Tier Talent Squad system.

Tier One

Will include athletes that played in the underage National Championships. All eligible athletes will be invited to participate and must accept the invitation within the required time frames to progress to the program. Additional athletes may also be invited into the Tier 1 program on a discretionary basis.

Tier Two

Will include athletes who are identified with the potential to represent Victoria at an underage National Championships.

Tier Three

Athletes who have been identified with talent that may not have previously been in the high performance pathway system (e.g. transitioning athletes from another sport, rural etc.)

Tier 3 athletes may be nominated by their Victorian Netball League (VNL) or Regional Victorian Netball League (RVNL) club or by an applicable Talent Scout and/or the Netball Victoria High Performance Manager.

The Talent Squad program will introduce a strength and conditioning, and athlete well-being component that will support the holistic development of the athletes.

  • Technical & Tactical (Specialist coaching)
  • Physical Preparation (Strength & Conditioning)
  • Athlete Well-being (Educational workshops)

The program will run through the year until October, with the timing of each tier being slightly different to enable identified athletes to reach their full potential through the provision of innovative and progressive development opportunities.
