For more than 25 years, Greater Bank have funded talented regional athletes within the Hunter Academy of Sport’s (HAS) netball program, helping them gain training and advice of a world-class standard without moving too far from home.
Hundreds of young athletes have attended the Academy and as a result, have taken part in sports talent development programs, training camps, clinics, education sessions and national congresses.
Each month during 2018, Greater Bank will be giving one lucky HAS netball player the status of ‘Netballer of the Month’. The lucky athlete will receive a $50 voucher to top up their Life Saver account with Greater Bank.
The winners for 2018 as of June are: Melissa Winter (Great Lakes), Ella Butcher (Newcastle), Taylah Winter (Maitland), Sammie Chicken (Taree) and Annie Neenan (Newcastle).
They were recognised for ongoing commitment, performance and enthusiasm.
Hunter Academy of Sport and Greater Bank are thrilled to be able to assist in developing the girls’ financial literacy skills and helping them to work towards their financial as well as sporting goals.
