Talent Project

Netball NI have partnered with Rowing Ireland to launch a talent search looking for tall female athletes interested in a new challenge!

We are recruiting females aged 14-23 and over 5'8/178cm who are currently outside our existing talent pathways who may have the aptitude and potential skills to be a world class rower or international netballer. Come along to one of our testing days in February to find out if you have what it takes to be competitive at international level in rowing or netball.

You can apply to be tested in one sport, or both. Successful applicants will then be invited to complete a 5 week confirmation program in their sport which will run from the end of February. 

For rowing this will include 2-3 sessions and 1 other training session each week; for netball this will be one 2 hour session once a week, training with other tall netballers from our existing development programmes to develop balance, agility, footwork, landing, defensive skills, shooting/attacking skills in a supportive environment over the 5 weeks.

Sessions will be based in Belfast.

No previous experience of either sport is required
