Netball - 15's
Development Pathway Change for 15's Netballers
To align with the National program, the following information is provided for 15's Netballers with regard to changes in the 'Netball NSW (NNSW) and Regional Academies of Sport' (RAS) development pathway.
Netball NSW continues to acknowledge the significance of opportunities and support provided by Regional Academies in the development of Netball NSW's most talented young pre elite athletes.
The introduction of the Netball Australia national curriculum 'Develop A Diamond 14-16 Academy (DADA 14-16)' program identifies that players turning 14, 15 and 16 in the current Academy year be considered for selection in their regions NSW Regional Academy of Sport - Open Netball squads.
This change therefore negates the previous rationale behind the 15's Development weekend & 'Talented Athlete Program' (TAP).
This program now becomes the 'Netball NSW 17/U TAP' program encompassing the Regional Academies of Sport 'DADA' 14-16 age group.With an emphasis on the nationally recognised athlete pathway the NNSW 17/U TAP program will sit between phase 1 and 2 of the NNSW State team 17/U trials as per the selection dates outlined on the NNSW website. Athletes selected to progress from phase 1 to phase 2 State team trials become the NNSW u17s TAP athletes.
