New opportunities for Netball School Ambassadors

NWC2015 School Announcement

Diamonds stars Madi Robinson, Sharni Layton and coach Lisa Alexander went back to school recently to help launch the `mini Netball World Cup’ – a new Netball Australia curriculum resource.

The trio joined with students and teachers from Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School and Federal MP Craig Laundy to pose for a `Class of 2015’ photo outside Sydney’s Allphones Arena – the venue for next year’s Netball World Cup.

The photo was taken to mark the creation of the Netball World Cup SYDNEY Schools Legacy Program which plays a critical role in providing opportunities and resources for schools.

This will include a suite of initiatives that ensures netball capitalises on the excitement of the 2015 Netball World Cup in Sydney, the first time the event is being played in Australia for 24 years.

The key to the program is the newly-developed ‘Mini NWC2015’ curriculum resource that brings the 10-day event to life in the classroom. Ambassadors are encouraged to add the new resource to their 2015 planning.

IMG_3736Netball Australia’s Participation Manager Chris Dobson said this is an exciting step forward in embedding the sport in Australian classrooms.

“The mini Netball World Cup is just one of the many exciting initiatives Netball Australia has planned over the next 12 months and beyond to ensure that every student is aware of the value that netball provides to communities across not only Australia, but globally,” Dobson said.

The resource will be available for teachers from term one next year and will evolve in the future with a unique netball experience providing a netball learning opportunity for many years to come.
