CCAS Greater Bank Netball program on the court

The Central Coast Academy of Sport Greater Bank Netball program was launched on Wednesday 29th January at Mingara Recreation Club, where the thirty (30) selected athletes and seven (7) umpires were presented with what to expect out of the 2020 Greater Bank Netball Program.

The CCAS Athletes heard from Greater Bank Branch Managers Cath Owens and Kim Rowley who spoke about financial fitness and the work that Greater Bank does in the community and the support they provide to various sporting groups and activations. Matt Cranney (Coast Sport Director) then ran all the athletes through an activation warm up developed by the Australian Diamonds Netball team before the girls headed into a start of season screening.

Head Coach of the CCAS Greater Bank Netball Program, Jessica Morgan said of the opening session: "We are really looking forward to getting to know this talented group of athletes. Working with athletes who are keen to learn and eager to explore their potential is just really exciting. We are already expecting the program to include greater opportunities for all of the athletes, as well as provide stronger links with our pathway teams and support staff.”

“Jess and all of our presenters did a fantastic job. There was a great energy in the room, with lots of excited athletes ready to get stuck into the 2020 training program. Having Cath and Kim from Greater Bank and Matt (Coast Sport) there to present and run through the warm up session was a huge privilege for all the athletes."

Emily Burgess-Moore, CCAS Events & Athlete Services Manager.

Two teams will be named from this squad to compete in the upcoming 2020 Your Local Club Academy Games, which is being held in the Newcastle region in April.
