Three netball players from the Brisbane West Lions will visit Nanango on Sunday to share their wisdom with local netballers.
Former Nanango and District netballer Brooke Pollock (Hams) will be one of the players passing on her knowledge from 10:30am.
Cost is $5 per player (9 to 15 years).
“Netball is fast becoming a career opportunity for netballers across the country,” Nanango and District Netball Association president Sheena Lindholm said.
“Our association is focused on providing learning opportunities for netball players to grow their skills and confidence in our game.
“It will be an absolute pleasure for our association and the region to welcome the rising stars of netball who are currently playing in the State League.”
She said the State League was a career pathway for netballers in both the city and regional Queensland.
“To show that you can come from our association and become an Olympian like Taliqua Clancy or play in the League like Brooke Hams is important and shows that netball is a reputable sport to learn and seek professional status in,” Sheena said.
After the session with the Brisbane West Lions on Sunday, the association will be hosting a “Coach the Coaches” clinic provided by former New Zealand star coach Leigh Gibbs, from Netball Queensland.
Coaches will be given the opportunity to gain certification under the guidance of the respected Ms Gibbs.
Players will also have the opportunity to be coached by Ms Gibbs and the newly accredited coaches.
Sheena said there were few spots left, but interested players should contact the association by email
