Launched with the backing of Netball NSW and the NSW Swifts’ principal partner QBE Insurance, the QBE Swifts Academy will look to strengthen the foundations of one of the sport’s most celebrated clubs by providing further pathway opportunities to aspiring players from across the state.

The Academy provides a daily training environment for home-grown NSW athletes who have the potential to play for the club in the future.

Underpinning the 10 rostered athletes in the main NSW Swifts squad which will contest Suncorp Super Netball, Academy players will consist of Swifts training partners, Australian Netball League athletes and more developing talent identified by Netball NSW selectors.

Under the stewardship of recently appointed Academy head coach Lenore Blades, athletes will benefit from up to three high-performance court sessions per week, three strength and conditioning sessions, and programs involving performance analysis, skill and movement mentoring, sports psychology and recovery.
