Young net­ballers will ben­e­fit from a pro­gram aimed to en­hance re­gional tal­ent, af­ter re­ceiv­ing a $5000 grant.

The Great South­ern Net­ball Re­gional Academy Pro­gram has been suc­cess­ful in ob­tain­ing the fund to­wards their Dare to De­velop Di­a­mond ini­tia­tive, a pro­gram which in­cor­po­rates 11 re­gions within the State and tar­gets sub-elite ju­nior ath­letes.

More than 30 ath­letes aged 1416 years old will ben­e­fit from this pro­gram.

Coach, Dale Niel­son will as­sist pro­gram co-or­di­na­tors in en­hanc­ing the re­gional tal­ent de­vel­op­ment pro­gram, as well as help cre­ate a high-per­for­mance plan for the new Net­ball WA com­pe­ti­tion frame­work starting in 2019.

The ath­letes will also gain ac­cess to High Per­for­mance Sports Psy­chol­o­gist Adrian Schon­feld.

Schon­feld will con­duct a pre­sen­ta­tion on men­tal re­silience in the sport.

The ath­letes will par­tic­i­pate in a six-week strength and con­di­tion­ing pro­gram in Albany and Katan­ning.

The GSSTA was formed to help the Great South­ern ath­letes and coaches progress from sub-elite to elite level within their spe­cific high-per­for­mance path­way.

Fund­ing is also avail­able to sup­port re­gional tal­ent de­vel­op­ment pro­grams, through fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance to Re­gional As­so­ci­a­tions of up to $5000.

The GSSTA is as­sisted by the Depart­ment of Sport and Re­cre­ation with fund­ing from Roy­al­ties for Re­gions.
