GIANTS Netball Academy

The GIANTS Netball Academy, established in 2019, creates a clear pathway for athletes in New South Wales from grass roots to the elite level.

The Academy is focused on developing and preparing players who the club believe have the potential to rise as a GIANT and play Suncorp Super Netball.

GIANTS Coach Julie Fitzgerald will oversee the program and has a strong history of rewarding training partners with on-court opportunities and contract elevation.

The environment created by the Academy, will offer those athletes selected the opportunity to work with experienced elite level coaches and support staff, enabling them to take the step to SSN seamlessly when the time comes.

The GIANTS Netball Academy will provide a holistic approach to preparing athletes for the elite level including skills sessions, strength and conditioning, mentoring, psychology and recovery.

The program will be closely aligned with the GIANTS Super Netball team, allowing Academy athletes to work alongside some of the best athletes in the world’s best competition. 

The competition avenue for Academy athletes will be through the Netball NSW Premier League competition, as well as the GIANTS Netball Australian Netball League team.

The GIANTS Netball Academy will include up to 20 selected athletes in any given year.

Trials for the GIANTS Netball Academy will be held on September 26th.

We will announce the academy following these trials.

Academy athletes will combine with GIANTS Netball Training Partners to represent GIANTS Netball in the Australian Netball League.

Program staff and coaches will be announced shortly.
