Academy Program

Helping South Australia's rising stars shine

Netball SA established the academy program throughout South Australia for talent identified players, coaches and umpires to help them reach their potential. 

We are run nine netball academies, including eight regional academies and one metropolitan academy.  

The program aims to decentralise the delivery of developmental and high-performance programs to South Australian member associations and to develop links between the regions, Netball SA and the South Australian Sports Institute. 

The main program runs from February to October of each year, involving players, coaches and umpires with a minimum 40 hours contact during this time.

The Academy Program is a pathway to Netball SA's state teams and beyond. We are proud to have several Adelaide Thunderbirds and Australian Diamonds come through South Australia's Academy Program.  

Trials for the academy programs commence in February of each year and are facilitated by each academy. Get in touch with your local academy to learn more.
