Congratulations to the 2019-20 Netball Athlete of the Year, Emma Keane!

2020 was a challenge for Netball athletes to showcase their talents with Academy Games, Academy Challenge and State Titles cancelled, and local competitions shortened due to COVID. Watch the Netball Captain’s reflect of the 2019-20 scholarship here.

Overcoming the year’s challenges, Emma Keane still achieved outstanding accomplishments during the 2019-20 scholarship year. The talented shooter was selected into the Netball NSW Emerging Talent Squad and as a training partner for the South Coast Blaze u23s to compete in the Netball NSW Premier League. 

Being selected into the NSW Emerging Talent Program means an athlete has been identified to have potential, strong work ethic and determination to succeed. It maximizes and assists athletes be ready to progress through the Netball NSW Athlete Pathway,” Head Coach, Ashlee Scofield applauded. Emma was one of only 22 athletes across NSW to be selected into this program. 

We have no doubt that we will continue to see Emma grow into a high achieving netballer. Fingers crossed for a big year ahead and the return of State competitions!
