THE South East Regional Academy of Sport (SERAS) held its first netball training camp for 2013 in Canberra on the weekend of March 9 and 10.
On Saturday the senior squad of 15 scholarship holders was joined by 13 scholarship holders from the Under 15s squad at the Australian Institute of Sport.
Both squads began the morning with a session on footwork and movement. In the afternoon the SERAS girls combined with the Western Region Academy of Sport netball squad for a session with NSW Institute of Sport Development Coach Sue Hawkins.
An inter-academy challenge was held at the Radford College on the second day for scholarship holders in the senior program.
The challenge provided the squad an opportunity to have match practice against teams from Southern Academy of Sport and Western Region Academy of Sport.
In 2013 SERAS is conducting a 15s scholarship program in addition to a senior netball program. The 15s squad will undertake two training days before they attend the Netball NSW Development Weekend in Sydney later in the year.
The senior squad has a busy year ahead including attending the NIB Games in Maitland during the July school holidays.
The senior squad will next meet in April for a training day at the Bermagui Indoor Stadium.
