Atwell College's Netball Specialist Program has been endorsed as a Tier 1 Specialist Netball School since 2018 by Netball Western Australia. This is an outstanding achievement as the endorsement recognises that we are one of the Top 5 Specialist Netball Schools in the state. As a Netball WA Endorsed Specialist Schools we must be able to demonstrate that we are able to provide a successful program that covers all aspects of netball and a holistic approach to student development. The objective of the program is to engage students to pursue netball through the various pathways from within our school environment: Athlete, Coach, Umpire, Official, and Volunteer pathways. The school-based program offers your child the opportunity to excel in their chosen sport and encourages ongoing participation in sport for young women.

At Atwell College the Netball Specialist Program is offered to Year 7-12 students. Students will receive a maximum of 4 periods per week for Netball and Physical education lessons. NSP students have the opportunity to develop physical and social skills throughout their time within the program. Knowledge, strategies, and tactics of Netball are assimilated in a progressive way to ensure athletes move from a basic to an advanced level.

Students are selected based on their athletic ability, skill level, behaviour and grades (students must maintain a C grade average in all subjects) 

The program offers students the opportunity to succeed in the following:

  • Netball skill development
  • Athlete development (diet, nutrition, fitness, preparation & recovery)
  • Sports nutrition
  • Fitness testing and assessment
  • Injury prevention (taping, sports medicine & rehabilitation)
  • Game systems and strategies
  • Coaching and Umpiring
  • Community links (club & association)
  • Inclusive
