Sponsorship Opportunities

Association Background
Netball NSW have launched a new elite level of netball competition in NSW. The Premier League is a new layer of competition above the current State League structure that aims to feed emerging athletes through to National and International pathways seamlessly. After a rigorous selection process, our submission was accepted by NSW, and the first season was launched in April 2016.

Goals of our Association
Our goal is four-fold:

  • To provide young women in our program with the best facilities, best coaching expertise and best cultural environment, and in doing so, deliver more athletes to National and International programs year on year.
  • To provide aspiring athletes of all ages in our geographic coverage regions an elite pathway to aim toward, and connect with these athletes through development programs with partner clubs / associations.
  • To recruit, retain and grow the best talent NSW has to offer, and ensure a bare minimum finals appearance for both teams (with premiership aspirations for both in the first two years).
  • To work with partners to become innovators in the way in which netball as a brand is grown in our communities, and to ensure our program differentiates itself from others.

Geography of our Association

  • Metro Inner Southern Suburbs / St George – covers 40 suburbs and over 200,000 residents within the City of Kogarah, City of Hurstville and City of Rockdale. This is the area we provide elite pathways for in connection to primary partner association St George District Netball Association, who run local grass-roots and representative teams.
  • Metro Inner East & Central – covers 40+ suburbs and over 250,000 residents within the Municipality of Woollahra, Waverley Council, City of Randwick, City of Botany Bay and City of Sydney. This is the area we provide elite pathways for in connection to primary partner association UTS Sport and Randwick Netball Club who run local grass roots teams and competitions, as well as University Netball programs.

Players who reside outside of these areas may still be included in our program given we are a highly sought after franchise, but our core development focus is on improving the pathway in these regions.

Sponsorship Proposal
The Sparks association is looking to expand our programs with the development of Junior Academies, Coaching Clinics for partner associations (Illawarra District Netball Associaiton, St George District Netball Association and Randwick Netball Association) and an increase of player support services for our current squad. This expansion will cost our association funds, which are currently being stretched to a maximum. Below are a number of sponsorship packages that are available and we would love you or your business to consider becoming part of the UTS Sparks family and supporting our club into the future. Altered or specific sponsorship packages are also available and open for discussion.
