The Central Coast Heart Premier League netball player trials were held at Central Coast Adventist School on Sunday 23rd August 2015, with a strong field of athletes represented across both the U20 and Open Teams.
Opens Head Coach Amber Cross said "it's fantastic to see a solid contingent of local athletes". Players from neighbouring associations were also welcomed, some travelling from as far abroad as Papua New Guinea.
The selection committee comprised former Australian Diamond Ali Broadbent who will act as Specialist Defence Coach for CC Heart, and Nerida Stewart, a former NSW Swift player who has been appointed Head Coach of the CC Heart U20s team.
"The calibre of athletes who trialled was impressive", said Nerida. "We can see a strong future for this netball franchise and look forward to developing local talent at CC Heart as a pathway to the Australian Netball League."
Both the U20s and Open Teams will be announced shortly.
