The ANZ Premiership is the pinnacle domestic competition in New Zealand. It is a significant platform for players aspiring to play netball semi-professionally and it provides opportunities for selected players to gain international representation.
The Pulse programme is jointly led by NNZ and CNZ. The alignment of PULSE and NNZ protocols is critical in ensuring a ‘one player one plan’ approach enhances and supports individual player development.
The New Zealand Netball Players Association (NZNPA) are engaged with NNZ to ensure player contracts and conditions align to professional work standards and expectations. high Performance Sport New Zealand (HPSNZ) are contracted by NCZ to provide strength and conditioning, and NCZ also contract other athlete services in nutrition, athlete life, mental skills and physiotherapy support. Each players individual performance plan (IPP) reflects her broad spectrum of on and off court needs that are identified to assist the player to enhance both her life and netball performances. Standards in conditioning are measured and checked against NNZ national performance guidelines and protocols.
The PULSE programme begins every year from November with the ANZ Premiership running from February through to July.
