The Central Coast Academy of Sport Greater Bank Netball program will be launched on Sunday, February 11th at the Central Coast Grammar School. The Greater Bank Netball program has for years been a program to envy, success at this level has been consistent over many years and it is anticipated the 2018 program will follow what was a standout year in 2017.
The Head Coach of the CCAS Greater Bank Netball Program Jessica Morgan said of the planning for the year ahead: “The plans for this year are better than ever, we have increased the numbers in the program to cater for the talent depth in netball on the Coast, we expect a very full program with plenty of on court and off court adjustments to previous years. The fact the ClubsNSW Education program will take centre stage in many of the off court session will be very important to the content to be delivered. Topics such as nutrition for superior performance, sports psychology and youth leadership will help the program maintain our lofty position in terms of program success.”
Mark Tipple, the CCAS Programs & Communications Coordinator said of the plans ahead: “Jessica did a fantastic job last program as the Head Coach. With a full program under her belt she has built a great 2018 training schedule coupled with an off-court education program to really challenge the girls. Jess will again be well supported by assistant coach Casey Judge and squad manager Donna Judge, and with two up and coming coaches really making a name for themselves through the success this program has enjoyed the Greater Bank netball squad will no doubt enjoy their experiences in 2018. I’m looking forward to seeing how the athlete’s skills will develop throughout the program, it really is exciting time for Netball on the Central Coast.”
A squad of twenty-eight was finally selected from the near seventy girls who trialed prior to Christmas. Two teams will be named from this squad to compete in the upcoming 2018 ClubsNSW Academy Games, which is being held throughout the Hunter in late April.
