Netball was one of the eight founding sports of the AIS and remains the key netball development program in Australia. Encompassing Netball Australia's national 21 and under program, the key objective is to remain the world number one nation at this elite level.
With scholarships offered annually, players will experience the necessary facets to compete with distinction both nationally and internationally. A key phase of the program is an annual international tour which exposes players to the rigours of travel, cultural diversity and a unique opportunity to play against world class opposition and different international styles of netball.
Training is based on skills and tactics employed by the Australian Netball team to compete successfully against their major international competitors. The AIS team provides support to the national team in its preparation for key events such as the Commonwealth Games and World Championships.
