OVERVIEW

Netball.png
The Netball Academy designs training programmes which focus on the development of sport intelligence and versatility in game play, to equip student-athletes with the required technical, physical and mental skills to succeed in their present and future endeavours in sport and beyond.

About half of our student-athletes who enter the Sports School have been inducted into the National Under 14 and U17 teams. Seventeen past and present student-athletes have been in the U21 Team. This is testament of the Netball Academy’s success in youth development, as a supply to the national youth age-group teams.

The Academy has a team of experienced coaches with past experience as competitive players at the elite level.  Sports School coaches Jocelyn Tan Shi Yun is appointed as National U19 coach and Geraldine Ng Jie Hui is appointed as North Zone U14 coach. 

The Netball Academy organises the annual International Youth Netball Challenge (IYNC), which sees participation of teams from netball powerhouse countries, such as Australia and South Africa, providing student-athletes with exposure to a higher levels of play. Information on the 2019 IYNC fixtures will be released in October 2019. 

Another signature programme by the Netball Academy is the Altitude Programme, customised for the optimal development of Primary 5 and 6 girls who are at least 1.60m in height.  Participants will learn basic ball handling skills and acquire techniques to help improve their agility, coordination and footwork.

Bukit Jalil International Netball Competition

Sports School netballers are invited to the Bukit Jalil International Netball Competition which sees participation of Malaysian state teams. A guest team from South Africa is also invited to raise the level of competition.
 

SPECIAL PROGRAMMES

International Youth Netball Challenge

The International Youth Netball Challenge organised by the Sports School places strong emphasis on the Olympic values of Friendship, Excellence and Respect. The IYNC sees participation of teams from netball powerhouse countries, such as Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, as well as regional countries. The level of competition brought by the international teams provides Sports School netballers with the opportunity to pit themselves against the best in their age-group and in the process, improve their quality of play.

U17 Talent Development Camp

The Under 17 Talent Development Camps provide a competitive environment for our student-athletes as they train and compete with the elite netballers in New South Wales, Australia. The camps provide opportunities for top student-athletes to stretch their potential through immersion into the Australia Netball scene.

Up to four Sports School netballers are selected yearly to participate in an intensive training camp organised by the Australia State Association. The student-athletes undergo a week-long stint with Australia’s elite U17 players where they train and spar with the stronger and more skilful Australians.

Training Tour

The Netball Academy organises overseas competitions to give greater exposure to the various teams. The teams travel to regional countries (Malaysia, Hongkong, Thailand, etc) as well as Australia and New Zealand.

Sports School’s netball teams compete in official competitions or friendly matches to expose themselves to different types of play. The Secondary 2 and 3 teams also have opportunities to travel to Australia and New Zealand for training cum competition stints.

Sparring Matches with Visiting Teams

The Sports School occasionally hosts overseas visiting teams. Our netballers have opportunities about five times a year to spar with teams from England, Australia and New Zealand, among others. These sparring matches provide a good platform for our student-athletes to learn from faster and stronger players to improve their game.

Australian club West Coast Fever is one such team that has visited the Sports School. The club is one of the top local teams, with several of its members in the National Australian team. Being able to spar with an elite team like West Coast Fever allows our netballers to improve on their tactical skills and court play.
