Netball

The primary aim of the VIS Netball Program is to prepare Victorian athletes for competition at elite domestic level, both within the Suncorp Super Netball competition and the Australian National League (ANL), and to prepare athletes for selection into Senior National teams and Underage squads.

The VIS program works in partnership with Netball Australia (NA) and Netball Victoria (NV), to deliver an underpinning program that provides world class coaching, training and support services to targeted nationally identified underage squad athletes to assist them to improve their competitive performance and reach their full potential on and off the court. The program also works in partnership with NV to provide coaching and performance support to the Melbourne Vixens for their Suncorp Super Netball campaign.
