Athletes from the NSW Institute of Sport Netball Program recently took part in a three day training camp on the Central Coast.
Taking place against the beautiful backdrop of Avoca Beach, 19 netballers participated in a range of activities centred around team building and high performance.
NSWIS Netball Head Coach Nerida Stewart was joined by Performance Analyst Sam Marshall, Dietitian Holly Edstein, Strength & Conditioning Coach Emma Hay, Netball Sport Consultant Amanda Valcossena and external Physiotherapist Melanie Tri.
During the camp the NSWIS athletes played a match against local team the Central Coast Heart.
Training sessions and strength & conditioning work was complimented with more non-traditional training; a shopping/recipe challenge facilitated by NSWIS Dietitian Holly Edstein, and a steep mountain hike led by Team Challenge Australia.
