Netball Queensland Academy

For the majority of players, it’s around this time of year where netball wraps up for the season—club finals either just finished or are coming soon, the SEQ Challenge and MQSNL finals are over and the ANZ Championship finished several months ago—but for the Netball Queensland Academy, their season isn’t quite yet over.

These athletes have one final training camp next Friday 25 September, before participating in the Queensland Underage State Team Trials on 26 and 27 September.

The Netball Queensland Academy athletes were selected in January and have participated in several training camps and sessions throughout the year, and head coach Christine Voge has been impressed with their progress.

“I’ve been really impressed with this group of athletes,” Voge said.

“The girls have been working hard in their home netball environment with their club and representative teams, as well as on their individual strength and conditioning programs, and you can really tell.”

The Netball Queensland Academy serves as a super layer of elite development for the future stars in netball and is used to give talent identified players extra training with high level coaches.

The training sessions have an emphasis on not only skill development, but teaching the athletes to train at a high level with a great work ethic in order to propel them through the elite development netball pathway.

2015 was the Netball Queensland Academy’s first year, with the idea being that the program will help its athletes be selected into the Under 17’s Queensland State Team.
