The WRAS program provides high performance coaching and training opportunities to up-skill athletes and assist them in progressing to higher representation within the sport of netball.

The WRAS netball program is endorsed by Netball NSW and provides talented netballers the opportunity to grow as netballers and people within the framework of Netball Australia’s Develop a Diamond program.

The program sits between local representative netball and higher order representation such as NSW state team selection.

The 2019 netball program will run from November 2018 to October 2019 with program trials to be held in September 2018. Athletes will graduate from the program at the 2019 Presentation Night in August.
