The Victoria University Netball Academy squad met retired Australia team player Eloise Southby and current Australia team member Natasha Chokljat at a recent training session.
The VU Netball Academy provides specialist training for squad members as well as opportunities for national talent identification. VU support is offered in the form of sports psychology, nutritional therapy and osteopathy.
Both netball stars offered their personal stories of achieving success at the highest levels. They also conducted intensive training with Academy members that showed them what was required to play at an elite level.
Academy head coach Laura Sharkey has designed monthly skill and fitness-based sessions and brought in specialist coaches to hone in on specific areas.
