Cert II Sport and Recreation (SIS20310) - Netball Excellence strand

A Nationally Recognised Qualification

The Netball Excellence strand is designed for students who are interested in developing their skills both on and off the court. Additionally, it will assist students in other areas with a view at making them more competent not only as a player but as a person, coach, manager, trainer and official. A high standard in the performance of Netball skills is needed for success in this subject.  Students completing this certificate are awarded four (4) credit points towards their Queensland Certificate of Education.  The course is offered at Wavell in conjunction with Metropolitan Skills Training Unit (MSTU).
