Congratulations to the following players named in the Central Manawa Beko wider training squad 2019-2020.  This squad will be provided with S&C programme and support to prepare for the final Beko trial that will take place on 18 January 2020, Saturday.  During the pre-season and before the trial, players may be added and de-selected.

Netball Central Zone achieved an unprecedented double this year when securing both the Beko and ANZ Premiership titles, coaching being a key factor as the Zone continues to look at building on its talent pool across this facet of the game.

After three years in the assistant’s role, Anna Andrews-Tasola will make the step up to head coach of the Central Manawa team for next year’s Beko Netball League.

Netball Central Zone, in collaboration with Netball Wellington Centre, is excited to provide two innovative learning opportunities for Community Coaches. These are being held during the Zone’s upcoming Super Tourney on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th of September. 

Netball Central Zone Junior Development Officer Irene van Dyk will be sharing her shooting knowledge and passion with Community Coaches at an upcoming informal workshop at Huntley School in Marton.

A focus on developing homegrown talent has paid dividends for Netball Central after the Zone blazed its way to New Zealand’s two premier domestic titles in 2019.
