Regional Academies of Sport
Our support of regional netball is also assisting some of the state’s brightest young netball stars on their representative journey through sponsorship of the Hunter, Central Coast and Western Region Academies of Sport netball programs. All three Academies give young athletes the opportunity to receive training of a world-class standard without the need to move or travel to a metropolitan centre. The netball development program plays a vital role in the Netball NSW Athlete Pathway by identifying, monitoring and developing the skills of young players.
Finally, Greater Bank is proud to be the major sponsor of the ASPIRE Netball program, founded and led by Giants Netballer, Sam Poolman. The ASPIRE program is a holistic development program that provides direct coaching from professional players and coaches and is designed to prepare young players for a career in elite netball, both mentally and physically. Sam mentors and inspires young athletes providing valuable insight into what it takes to make it in the world of professional netball.
