Athletes and coaches from affiliated Associations in the Great Southern may be identified and selected into the Great Southern Talent Development Group. The athlete selection for this program comes primarily from the Great Southern Regional Championships. However, if there is a valid reason as to why an athlete or coach is not able to participate in the Championships and they have been identified at other Carnivals or Association visits they may be included into the program. 

This program offers selected athletes and coaches the opportunity for further pathway development both on and off court through day camps and satellite sessions. State Cup Team athletes and coaches are selected from this program.
