Partnership with Inspire Netball Group
VMMNA is proud to work with Inspire Netball, our official pathway partner to deliver a pathway for boys and umpires to take their netball to the next level.
As members of the VMMNA community, the team at Inspire Netball understand what makes boys and men’s netball unique, along with the intricacies of umpiring this type of game, and bring a wealth of experience both on and off the court.
The programs they offer form a vital part of the pathway for young players and umpires, from grass roots through to the Victorian representative teams and AMMNA Championship Umpires.
- Boys Emerging Talent Academy – this Academy acts as an official pathway program that will feed into the Victorian State Team Program. The Academy runs across various sessions and will engage young athletes as an introduction into what the Elite environment is like.
- Boys Netball Holiday Clinics – these clinics act as both an introductory for boys into netball as well as providing opportunities for existing players to further develop their skills. Our aim with Inspire is to provide these in different locations each holidays to provide access to boys from different regions.
- High Performance Umpire Academy – enables us to provide a pathway program that promotes high performance learnings for all VMMNA Umpires wishing to nominate for the AMMNA Championships. The Umpire Academy seek to establish high performing behaviours with a view of developing umpires to become high achievers. The Academy’s aim will be to improve the standard of umpires and in turn have a higher percentage of Victorian umpires selected to attend the Championships.If you’re looking to take your umpiring to the next level and want more exposure to high level match play, we want to hear from you – click here to find out about the Academy.
