School Base Netball Program

Our Netball Program is a Netball WA endorsed program. Our objective to engage students to pursue netball through various pathways within our school environment: Athlete, Coach, Umpire, Official, Volunteer pathways.

 

Entry into the Netball Program is through an application and selection process. To be eligible to apply, students must have been offered a place in the school through a general application or the Gifted and Talented Program.

 

The program gives students in Years 7-12 the opportunity to pursue their passion in netball, with assistance of accredited coaches and elite level players. Our program is a combination of expert coaching, skill development and a curriculum of academic and vocational courses to enable students to reach their full potential.

The Netball Program is delivered via four hours of tuition per week, where students learn from accredited coaches and have the opportunity to participate in regular competitions, interstate and international tours. Included in the 4 hours is a theory-based program incorporating a focus on sports nutrition, sports psychology, training for competition, sports injury prevention, rehabilitation, coaching and umpiring.

 

The program is co-ordinated by Emma Cosh, current West Coast Fever Training Partner, WANL East Fremantle Sharks player and Netball WA accredited coach. Assisting with the program is Madeleine Hall, previous state league player and State representative.
