Queensland 17U and 19U Squad Announcements

Netball Queensland is pleased to announce the following Queensland 17U and 19U squads who will begin the final preparation phase for the National Netball Championships to be held in Adelaide from April 17 to 23, 2018.

The squads will train across the next three Sunday mornings before attending a training camp on February 10 and 11. Following this camp the final squad of 12 and training partners will be confirmed. 

Netball Queensland General Manager – High Performance Richard McInnes said it was a tough decision in finalising the 2018 squads.

“The selection process is always challenging, but we feel that over 3 camps and 8 days we have been able to come up with a strong combination of players, from which we can finalise our teams for Adelaide in April,” McInnes said.

“Naturally there will be some players, disappointed to miss out, as is always the case and we encourage them to continue to work on their game and perform well over the coming year.”

“It is pleasing to see the inclusion of Georgia Cox (Townsville) and Rachel Faanana (Cairns) in these squads, reinforcing the strength of our regional competitions.”

Newly appointed Netball Queensland Performance Pathways Manager Tracey Fear said she was delighted with the dedication shown from the young players.

 “It was great to see so many players who have clearly spent the holiday season training hard and preparing for the camp. The conditions at the camp were tough, the heat was extreme, but players just accepted the challenge and performed strongly throughout the 2 days,” Fear said.

“We’re excited at the talent coming through the State pathway and the future looks promising with the number of potential Firebirds in these Squads.”
