2019 Junior Netball Pre-season and trial information

In 2019 we are offering Pre-Season session for our 13/U, 15/U and 17/U players.  Please note 17/U players are also invited to attend Senior Pre-season. 

Pre-season training is used for netball players to develop fitness components that are more specific to the game of netball. This includes strength, speed, power, anaerobic endurance and agility. Players should be aware that it is also necessary to maintain flexibility, core strength and aerobic endurance in their own time.
