Talent Identification Program

About TIP

South Coast Blaze, in partnership with Kiama Netball Association, Shoalhaven Netball Association and Illawarra District Netball Association, created the Talent Identification Program (TIP) in 2020 for 14 to 18 year olds to develop future elite netball players. The program provides netballers with an opportunity to train with other talented players and receive specialist coaching in a high performance environment.

TIP is available to female and male players on the NSW South Coast and Far South Coast regions, including Eurobodalla, the Sapphire Coast and Southern Highlands.

Each year a TIP squad is selected to take part in 6-8 coaching sessions, usually running from March to September/October, with brilliant advanced and elite coaches.
