Coaching applications for Ariels VCNA and Ariels Jets – 2018 teams is now open – Coach Application Form 2018
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 full days of activities, which helps our teams bond and get a head-start on their fitness ahead of the autumn netball season.
