Athlete Development Academy

Northern Districts Eagles Netball Club is proud to offer to its members participation in the 2019 Athlete Development Academy.  This academy is designed to promote long term athlete development by improving strength, speed and overall physical competency, along with promoting other aspects relating to becoming an elite athlete, such as; nutrition, leadership, drugs in sport, injury prevention etc.

This is not a netball academy!  The attributes developed will be beneficial for any sport played and can also prove beneficial in school, work and social life.

With workshop presentations by NTIS coaches and Netball NT and Sports Medicine Australia representatives, the academy will prove beneficial for not just athletes, but coaches and parents also.
