    The Stingas program aims to develop players to play Netball ‘The Australian Way’

    ‘Netball the Australian way, is a game of spatial awareness, lightning fast movements, precision passing, dynamic attacking and defending moves, made within a team structure and culminating in spectacular high shots at goal from anywhere within the goal circle. Either in attack or defence, fast hands, fast feet, quick thinking and explosive speed completes the package.’

    Squad members must play club and they must put their club commitments ahead of their Stingas commitments. Squad members are role models to younger players and their peers and as such are expected to act responsibly and speak positively about the program.
