The program aims to engage traditionally inactive children in sport and other structured physical activities, and through a positive and fun experience, develop a love of sport that inspires them to join a local sporting club. Coaches from the community are needed to help deliver these activities and they attend the Community Coach Training Program prior to getting started.

It is open to students, volunteers, teachers, parents, club coaches, beginner coaches, professional coaches and community members.

Jourdan Moving On
Netball NT Development Officer Jourdan Pym has relinquished his position with Netball NT. My understanding is he has his sights set for the sky but intends to remain in Darwin for the interim. He has assured me that he will still be actively involved in the netball community and looks forward to seeing us all on court.
Personally I’d like to wish Jourdie good luck in his future endeavours and a big thankyou for helping make netball in the NT what it is today.
