The Ariels VCNA Program
We are very proud of our Ariels VCNA and Ariels Jets program, which we believe is among the best junior representative netball development programs in Australia.
Our program focuses on developing each athlete’s skills, mental preparedness and physical fitness and strength, to give them the best chance of reaching their full potential within our sport.
As part of Ariels VCNA program, we offer
Strength and conditioning
At 15/U level, our coaches run weekly fitness and footwork sessions, which are compulsory for 15-1 and 15-2 players, while players from other teams are encouraged to attend.
At 17/U and Open level, players in our Jets and Ariels VCNA programs can attend weekly strength and conditioning sessions, which include an introductory weights component to help players prepare their bodies for the next step in their netball journey.
All of our Ariels VCNA and Ariels Jets teams attend an annual weekend camp in late January/early February.
The camp includes a night away and two days of activities, which helps our teams bond and get a head-start on their fitness ahead of the autumn netball season.
