Development Workshops

As part of assisting our members with the management of our associations, Netball Victoria will continue to provide FREE development and training opportunities in 2016 to all affiliated Association members.

Association training will be predominately allocated within Netball Victoria’s zones and regions. The training is aimed at strengthening the capacity of Association committees to respond to complaints or disputes and implementing processes to compliment existing rules and regulations to assist in further development.
