Western Region Academy of Sport

Greater Bank’s commitment to supporting regional netball pathways extended to the Central West in 2019, announcing a three-year partnership with the Western Region Academy of Sport.

The program sits between local representative netball and higher order representation, such as the NSW state team. The high-performance coaching and training provides opportunities for athletes to develop their skill-base and assist them in progressing to these higher representative honours.

The WRAS Greater Bank Netball Program is endorsed by Netball NSW and provides talented netballers the opportunity to grow as netballers and people within the framework of Netball Australia’s Develop a Diamond program.

Led by head coach, Linda Macleod, the squad brings together 30 athletes from across the Central Western region of NSW, including Bathurst, Narromine, Mudgee, Parkes, Lidster, Dubbo and Forbes.
