The Illawarra's top junior netballers will have the opportunity to learn from some of the sport's best in a new talent identification program.
The South Coast Blaze have launched the project for players aged 14 to 18, with the goal to develop juniors into elite adults.
Former Sydney Swifts players Nat Behl and Kimberlee Gilmour, and English star Donna Fearon will run the program. Juniors will attend eight two-hour sessions, which will be held monthly in the Illawarra, Kiama and Shoalhaven.
"The South Coast Blaze Talent Identification Program has been created to develop our future elite players, providing them with an opportunity to train with other talented players and receive specialist coaching in a high performance environment to improve their skills," South Coast board member Michele Harvey said.
Registrations are open until February 23, with trials to be held on Saturday February 29.
