Participants are still able to register however the program cost of $80 still applies.
What if l have participated in the program before?
Fantastic! We love seeing returning athletes and seeing their growth. Sam changes the content of the program each time and even adds in some
surprise elements just for fun. We highly recommend coming back and then progressing into either Aspire Netball or Aspire Strive programs.

Aspire development allows you to get to know new people who share common interests (like our love for netball!)

At the first session if you could arrive 10 mins prior to your session starting. This will allow time to collect your name tag, singlet and get ready for the session. You might even sneak in a quick chat with Sam!
Do parents have to stay and watch?
No, however please return prior to finishing time.
What about COVID protocols?
The health and safety of our netball community is our priority. We have protocols prior and during the running of our programs. At anytime it we need to reschedule or cancel the program due to COVID we will communicate with you via email.
Due to high demand of the program and limited places available we only allow refunds if its 14 days prior to the first session. If cancellation is required 48 hours before the session due to injury or illness we will refunded less $10 if you supply a valid medical certificate prior to the clinic starting.
COVID - if a program is cancel due to COVID we will process refunds. If part of the program has run we will refund a % of the cost. We will communicate with all parents via email.
Hot weather – we highly recommend a hat, plenty of water, sunscreen and suitable clothing. We will provide a modified session, ice to keep your water cool, sunscreen and take breaks in the shade. If the heat becomes an issue, the session will be moved indoors and athletes will participate in a wellbeing session suitable for netball.
Wet weather – we highly recommend suitable clothing, a warm jacket or rain coat. If the courts are unsafe to train on or lightning is seen, the session will be moved indoors and athletes will participate in a wellbeing session suitable for netball.
The session will go ahead in an event of wet weather or heat. Sessions will be modified as required and may be taken inside at the same venue.
For any other reasons that may occur, a decision will be made for everyone’s safety by 2 hours prior to session time starting. You will be notified by email and the phone number you registered with that the session is cancelled. An alternate date will be communicated to you at the next session.
