Development Squad

The DDNA are super excited to introduce the DDNA Development Netball Squad to our community. In 2019, we are partnering with Nardelli Coaching to deliver this great initiative. The program has been developed to provide further opportunity for players to reach their full potential. It serves as a growth program that will sit between domestic and representative levels of netball.


The program has been made available to all players who trialled for our representative teams and were not successful in gaining a position. All players involved will be personally coached by Lauren and Rob Nardelli who bring experience working at all levels of netball to these lucky players. The program will be structured in such a way as to include general skills, positional specific skills, strategy and tactics training as well as the opportunity to implement these skills during match play.


Importantly, there will also be a strong focus on injury prevention and strength and conditioning. Lauren and Rob will also take their knowledge and experience working within State, VNL and National programs to ensure a well-rounded program both on and off the court. Training for the development squad kicked off prior to Christmas with fitness testing, conditioning and skills sessions taking place. We look forward to watching the growth of the squad throughout the year with these players being able to take their learnings back to their clubs.
