With a focus on providing opportunities for students to learn in an elite international sporting environment, the Southern Institute of Technology has joined forces with the Southern Steel. Netball South Chief Executive Sue Clarke – herself an SIT graduate – said the tertiary institute was a natural fit for the franchise. “The environment we operate in provides an incredible array of opportunities for SIT students across such a vast range of subjects. Whether their chosen field of study is sport and recreation, film, massage therapy or even music, they can be involved with aspects of our team and wider franchise,” she said.
