New NISA National Squad Structure
Posted: 14th July 2014

NISA has revised the national squad structure for Performance and Development as from 1st July 2014.

This new structure was approved by the NISA board, who have allocated the “ring fenced” funding of the “NISA  Legacy Development Fund” to support this programme over the next 4 years.
