Talent Identification Program 2020 Squad Announced

South Coast Blaze, the new franchise in the Netball NSW Premier League, is pleased to announce the players that have been successfully selected in the South Coast Blaze Talent Identification Program.

South Coast Blaze, in partnership with Kiama Netball Association, Shoalhaven Netball Association and Illawarra District Netball Association, created the program for 14 to 18 year olds to develop future elite netball players, providing them with an opportunity to train with other talented players and receive specialist coaching in a high performance environment.

Due to the large number of players that trialled in February a Senior Squad and Junior Squad has been selected. The squads will be coached across eight sessions by former elite netballers, including former Sydney Swifts stars Nat Behl (nee Sloane) and Kimberlee Gilmour, and former UK Netball Superleague player, Donna Fearon.

“It was great to see a lot of talented players from the South Coast region and surrounds, including the Southern Highlands and Goulburn, be selected in the program. I commend all the players that trialled for the program and encourage those who missed out to trial again next year,“ said Karina Franke, South Coast Blaze Chairperson.
