Junior Talent Squads announced


Australia’s potential stars of the future have been identified and announced in the 2008 17/U and 19/U Junior Talent Squad, following The Athlete's Foot National Netball Championships held this week in Perth.


Identified as having the potential to represent Australia, the squads will participate in the National Underage Talent Camp at the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) from 8 – 11 July.


As a key phase in the pathways program, Netball Australia’s High Performance Manager Natalie Wright-Boyd, believes that the athletes will make the most of the unique opportunity.


“This is a chance for these athletes to demonstrate their commitment and skill at the camp,” Wright-Boyd said.


“Participants will experience the state of the art high performance facilities and services provided by the AIS and will be coached by high performance coaches from around Australia.


“Norma Plummer, Australian Coach and Simone McKinnis, AIS Head Coach and Australian 21/U Coach will also be in attendance throughout the camp.”

After reaching the Grand Finals in both age groups, there is no surprise the highest representation of athletes in the selected squads  hail  from Victoria and New South Wales, further highlighting the depth of talent in both states.

With a number of eligible athletes for these squads representing their State in the 21/U teams, further athletes will be added to squads at the conclusion of the 21/U competition.
