Special Programmes

INTERNATIONAL YOUTH NETBALL CHALLENGE

The International Youth Netball Challenge (IYNC) 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 and 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.
