Aspire Development is targeted for players between 11-15 years of age in 2020. The program runs for one hour, for three weeks and is hosted by your local netball Association. This is the fourth year the program has run with players progressing through our programs pathway.
With 2020 providing a challenging year for everyone, we have learnt to be adaptive. To give a missed opportunity to our players and follow all restrictions we are changing this years program, slightly.
Aspire Development will be run at your local Association across two weeks. Our final week players will come together for match play and create thinking players through game sense. Please read the location of the last session as we are combined programs. Location hosts are Singleton, Port Stephens, Charlestown and Cessnock Netball Association courts.
Please note - you can only register to be apart of the program at the Association you are registered to play. If you can't attend the final session you can still register for the program we can't refund costs.
Some programs might be slightly changed so, please read booking details for the length of program, session times and dates. Please register the age you turn in 2020!
