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, U17 and U19 teams. At least 33 past and present student-athletes have been in the U21 Team. Since 2019, there are at least 9 current student-athletes and alumni selected for the U19 team each year. This is a testament to the Netball Academy’s success in youth development, as a constant 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. In 2023, Acting Head Coach Geraldine Ng Jie Hui was appointed as National 19 & Under (Schools) coach, and in 2024 she was appointed as North Zone and National 17 & under coach.
The Netball Academy organises the annual International Youth Netball Challenge (IYNC), which sees the participation of teams from netball powerhouse countries, such as Australia, South Africa and Hong Kong, providing student-athletes with exposure to higher levels of play.
Another signature programme by the Netball Academy is the NETSSPLAY Programme – a development programme customised for the optimal development of Primary 6 girls. Participants will acquire techniques to further improve their agility, coordination, and court play.
