The NCAS program is supported and endorsed by Netball NSW and provides opportunities for athletes and umpires to progress through the Netball NSW Pathway. The program delivers the NNSW Regional Academy program and focuses on the identification and development of talented junior netball athletes, umpires and coaches on the North Coast of NSW.
This program is designed to assist the individual development of each athlete and umpire and provide opportunities to progress further in the sport. The program has an emphasis on providing greater skills development, strength and conditioning support and physical preparation. Squad members receive a sports education program with modules covering sports nutrition, injury management, sports psychology, media training, youth leadership and sport & community drugs awareness.
The program runs from December to April including the Your Local Club Academy Games (with a recess for Association and Regional Training) and then from July to October (dates TBC) including the Regional Academies of Sport & Netball NSW Academy Netball Challenge.
