Hunter Academy of Sport

Greater Bank has been supporting the Hunter Academy of Sport for more than two decades and looks forward to continuing its support of the netball program.

The Academy gives young athletes from across Newcastle and the wider Hunter Region the opportunity to receive training and tutelage of a world-class standard without the need for moving or traveling to a metropolitan centre.

The netball talent development program plays a vital role in the Netball NSW Athlete Pathway by identifying, monitoring and developing the skills of young netball players. The program will consist of on court skills training, fitness and athlete education, as per the Netball Australia Develop a Diamond program. 

It provides a holistic approach to sport, knowing that an athlete is expected to do much more than just perform in their chosen field. Greater Bank is happy to support the program and our athletes with the necessary financial skills and assistance it takes to be an athlete.
