Netball New Zealand (NNZ) High Performance Pathway: centrally led, regionally delivered.

We produce Silver Ferns who WIN.

Netball New Zealand (NNZ) has implemented a centrally driven, targeted approach to athlete identification and development through the establishment of a national pathway that commences with athlete identification at Under 15 level.

Individuals will be assessed and benchmarked against the NNZ Player Profile and based on their identified potential, will move into one of two streams;

  • NNZ Regional Silver Ferns Development Programme
  • Zone/Centre Development Programme or Zone Performance Programme

Athletes will have the potential to move into and out of the National and Zone programmes on an on-going basis with progress monitored, tracked and reviewed by NNZ.

The programmes at all levels will be structured and comprise of a nationally developed curriculum in order to accelerate the development of our athletes to world class Silver Ferns.
