Greater Bank and The Central Coast Academy of Sport are pleased to announce the Greater Bank Netball Squad for 2019.

The Greater Bank Netball Program is one of the most competitive Academy squads to gain entry into, with over sixty (60) athletes taking to the courts in a two-trial process to whittle the final squad down to a manageable twenty-seven (27) athletes. Greater Bank has been a long-term supporter of CCAS, and of Netball across the Central Coast and NSW.

Netball is a founding sport program of the Central Coast Academy of Sport and, following some recent outstanding individual and team performances over the past few years, the talent on display for entry to the next program was simply outstanding.

The selection of the final squad was not without difficulties and congratulations goes to the girls listed below on gaining entry to this highly sought-after program.

Mark Tipple, the CCAS Sports Programs Manager said of the trial process:

The Central Coast Academy of Sport has been blessed over the years to have great talent depth coming from the three local Netball associations and this year has been no different | Mark Tipple, CCAS Programs Director

"Credit must go to the selection panel who used both objective and subjective measures to finalise a Greater Bank Netball squad to represent the CCAS that will once again be amongst the very best in NSW" Mr Tipple said.

"Our coaching staff have a fantastic record of nurturing potential and verifying talent that they see in the Coast’s best young Netballers. The Central Coast Heart’s win in the Netball NSW Premier League has proven how strong the local Netball pathway is and we are looking forward to the steps that this group will take towards achieving their goals in the sport over the next twelve months.”
