    The Junior Leadership Program, established in 1998, has seen well over one hundred and ninety young members graduate, with many of those graduates taking on leadership roles within our clubs and the Southern Tasmanian Netball Association itself.



    The main focus of the Junior Leadership Program is to give young members the skills and resources they need to become a leader within their club, and the association. These skills are easily transferrable to other aspects of the junior leaders life.
