Our Rep Program has a strong focus on our core values of teamwork, inclusivity, empowerment and integrity – most importantly though we want our players to enjoy their netball.
2021 Club Motto
“It must be fun and my coaches are vital. We are, as a program, only as good as our players and coaches!
‘I want players to want to play for SANDY” – Jo Hockley SANDY Rep Head Coach.
Our aim is to provide players within our Domestic Competition an opportunity to enhance and increase their netball skills in order to fully realise their potential and create a Pathway for their netball development.
Players are selected for our Representative Teams through an intensive 2 to 3 week trial process. Trials are held twice a year in June and October. At trials ‘Development Academies’ are selected alongside our Representative Teams – sometimes players show great potential and we know they will benefit from exposure to the program in a training only capacity.
Representing SANDY as part of our Rep Program is a great opportunity for any player, we encourage all players in all age groups to come along and trial. We look forward to welcoming our next intake of players every year.
We run a Fast Track Program (Rep Ready) each year where our Rep coaches work with our domestic players on their fundamental netball skills. We would strongly advise players who are interested in our Rep Program as well as players who just love their netball to attend the Fast Track Program.
Information on our September 2022 Fast Track Program will be posted here shortly.
Information on trials for 2022 teams will be posted here shortly.
Depending on your club, netball league or circle of netball acquaintances, you may have heard about “pathways” – it’s the all-encompassing buzzword for the generally accepted route and progressions a player might take on their way to netball’s higher levels, whether that be state league, state teams, national teams or even higher.
SANDY work in conjunction with our Clubs and Netball Victoria to support and grow all coaches within our Association – Domestic, Representative, NetSetGo and All Abilities.
