Training Programs Description

Netball emerged from the early versions of Basketball, but has since evolved into its own fully professional sport.

Netball is a fast paced and high skill game, combining fitness with speed & strength.

Our Netball training programs are designed to maximise your sporting performance to ensure you reach your Netball potential. Each training day includes a combination of gym, speed / agility and court fitness training sessions.

The Netball Stage 1 program is designed for the novice/young athlete who needs to address all round physical development over the pre season period or a Netballer who has limited time to devote to their training. The sessions address basic technical speed development and agility, foundation strength adaptation and aerobic conditioning with a progression into more specific aerobic power development as well as anaerobic power and capacity.

The Netball Stage 2 program is designed for the intermediate athlete for all round physical development and to address the foundations of power production over the pre season period. The sessions address technical speed development and agility, strength adaptation, foundation power training and aerobic conditioning with a progression into aerobic power development, anaerobic capacity and repeat speed endurance efforts.

The Netball Stage 3 program is designed for more advanced athlete who needs to build on their foundation physical qualities through a series of progressive, high intensity strength and conditioning programs. The individual sessions address speed development, agility training, strength development, foundation power training and aerobic conditioning with a progression into aerobic power development, specific anaerobic capacity and repeat speed endurance efforts.

Continuing reading for a comprehensive list of the physical qualities developed in our Netball training programs.

Netball Fitness & Conditioning

Aerobic training addresses the foundation of any conditioning program – maximal oxygen uptake. Aerobic capacity represents the individuals ability to generate energy through the use of oxygen. For the Netball player, it is particularly important to aid recovery between bouts of exercise and to allow the athlete to maintain a high level of intensity over the full four (4) quarters. This base must be developed so that we are able to explore the potential of anaerobic training.

Anaerobic training addresses the athletes ability to recover from repeat high intensity exercise and to allow for efficient removal of the waste products associated with anaerobic energy production such as lactic acid. The anaerobic system promotes the development of the strong, powerful athletic movements essential for success at the highest level – this is an essential element of the modern Netball game.

Netball Speed & Agility Training

Speed training addresses the athlete’s ability to perform repeat high speed movements in a safe and optimal manner. In any team sport, it is often said that there is no substitute for speed – these programs, alongside the development of functional and absolute strength, allow speed to be a strength rather than a weakness!

These sessions provide a progressive approach to the development of Netball specific speed and agility, starting from the development of general speed technique, functional mobility and postural strength to the development of the multi directional acceleration qualities essential to the modern game of Netball. All facets of speed development are addressed, including increasing contact speed, plyometric advancement and speed endurance qualities.

Together with strength training (detailed below) these sessions provide a progressive approach to the development of Netball specific speed. Each week is designed to build on the previous allowing the athlete to progress through increasing intensities and complexities of exercise in order to develop a sound foundation essential for the game of Netball. This type of fitness is often the difference between making, breaking or missing critical moments in the game.

Netball Strength & Power Training

As with any weight training program, it is imperative to support strength and power development with a comprehensive injury prevention and functional development program. Functional body management programs complement the gains made in the strength programs by addressing the quality and range of movement that allows all movements to be performed in a safe and productive manner.

Netball Recovery & Flexibility

In order to perform day after day, week after week it is imperative that the athlete has sufficient, optimal recovery and regeneration strategies in place. If this is not in place then overtraining may occur leading to the increased likelihood of injury and illness as well as decreased performance levels.

If training is followed by sufficient recovery then a state of ‘supercompensation’ is reached where physical capacity is increased. If this is performed over a period of time, the adaptations to exercise are positive. However, if there is insufficient recovery then performance levels and capacities drop, leading ultimately to overtraining, injury and illness.
