In 2017 Netball ACT formed a strategic alliance with Netball NSW that saw a new Canberra GIANTS team compete in the 2017 Australian Netball League (ANL).
The Canberra GIANTS team consists of ACT and NSW players, providing a great opportunity for players to showcase their netball talents on the national stage.
The ANL is a feeder competition for the new national competition, Suncorp Super Netball (SSN) with coaches keeping a watchful eye on young talent coming through the ranks.
Local ACT players will train in Canberra throughout the week before joining their NSW teammates for training sessions in Sydney on a regular basis in the lead up to and during the ANL season.
Canberra’s Sharyn Hill was selected as one of two Canberra GIANTS Co Coaches and oversees training sessions in the ACT.
Canberra hosted two games, one in front of a sell-out crowd at the SolarHub ACT Netball Centre, and the other at the AIS Arena after the GIANTS Netball match. Canberra GIANTS finished third in their debut season of the Australian Netball League.
