Netball SA is excited to announce its second year of the Youth Advisory Group. The Youth Advisory Group will consist of up to 10 members who will be a part of the group for the duration of the year.
The Youth Advisory Group was established with the following purposes:
- To provide youth in netball with a voice and seat at the table to inform, influence and shape the future of netball in South Australia.
- Develop and prepare youth for leadership roles and responsibilities in the future.
The formation of this group is supported by the following recommendations given by the Flinders University Shape Report and is part of the Netball SA Strategic Plan.
- Establish a state-based committee to provide insight into the wants and needs of the netball community
- To continue nurturing the sport as a major pathway for the youth of South Australia through traditional and non-traditional means.
In 2023 our Youth Advisory Group members were a part of reviewing our marketing strategies to ensure what we do is attractive and appealing to our next generation of netball players and administrators. They also undertook a major project that helped us identify certain areas of our workforce and helped develop strategies and programs to ensure young new coaches and umpires supported and well equipped.
