The Greater Bank WRAS Netball 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 program is endorsed by Netball NSW and provides talented netballers the opportunity to grow as netballers and people within the Netball NSW Athlete Pathway Framework

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

The 2022 netball program will run from late January 2022 to October 2022 and athletes will graduate from the program at the 2022 Presentation Night.  Nominations to trial will open in September 2021.  Dates for Phase 1 trials will be advertised shortly.

Athlete nominations for the WRAS 2022 Greater Bank Netball Program will officially open in September 2021. The 2022 program will be run for athletes turning 15 or 16 years old.
