Subject: North Coast Academy of Sport - 2018 Netball Program

Hi Associations!
This week wraps up the 2017 NCAS Netball Program with our squad competing at the Australian Invitational Youth Games in Maitland. Athletes and coaches from all over our region have made us proud and we’re sure whether it’s social and weekend comps, State or State Age, the same applies for you.
With the 2018 program in our sights I’d like to introduce myself to Associations I haven’t met yet and say hi again to the familiar ones.
I’d like to open up more dialogue between you and the Academy and strengthen our relationship. You are the teams who help foster our North Coast talent!
The 2018 netball program will have all positions open for application for coaching staff including:
Head Coach
Assistant Coaches
Trainee Coaches
Information and expressions of interest will open shortly. If you or someone you know would like more information just let me know.
I’m looking to send posters and information to each association for both athletes and coaches alike. Can I please ask if this is not the best contact to forward me onto the applicable representative. Can each association please reply confirming your postal address.    POSTER

Congratulations to the Macleay Open Representative team - 2017 Runners-up in the Mid-North Coast Regional League competition. The 12 players played exceptional well in a tough match against Nambucca. The skills that they displayed will hold them in good stead for the NSW State Championships in June.
Coaches Sonya Murphy and Georgie Murphy lead the players with expertise and dignity. Well done! Thanks also to Alison Swan who volunteered as our bench official and looked after the player wellbeing between games.

Congratulations also to Sarah Barrell who was selected by the regional umpire allocation panel as one of the best umpires in the region and given the Divison One Regional Grand Final to umpire. Well done Sarah.

Thank you also to the umpires who umpired during the rounds, Sarah Lawrence and Amanda Wicks. Without our umpires we cannot participate in these competitions.
