Junior Representative squads.
17th November.
As the sun went down on a Tuesday evening for the past 6 weeks, our Junior Representative squads have been
at the courts for training, fitness, skills drills and court play as part of the lead up to 2018 Representative Team selections.
It was great to see so many keen netball faces, familiar and new.
All have shown great improvement, have listened intently to their coaches and have had fun doing it.
Good luck in selections next year girls!
You certainly have made some tough decisions for our selectors at the beginning of 2018.
