Na­tional se­lec­tion

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

Wim­mera net­ballers Sacha Mcdon­ald and Mag­gie Caris have won se­lec­tion in na­tional squads.

Vic­to­rian Fury netballer Mcdon­ald, whose home club is Eden­hope-ap­s­ley, made the 19 and un­der na­tional squad.

Caris, from Hor­sham Saints, was se­lected in both 17 and un­der and tall ath­lete squads.

The squads were se­lected af­ter the Na­tional Net­ball Cham­pi­onships.

Ath­letes were cho­sen based on the demon­stra­tion of their po­ten­tial as well as their per­for­mances through­out the six-day tour­na­ment.

Both Mcdon­ald and Caris will at­tend na­tional squad camps at the Net­ball Cen­tre of Ex­cel­lence in Can­berra.

The 19 and un­der and tall ath­lete camp will run from July 9 to 12, with the 17 and un­der camp from Oc­to­ber 1 to 5.

The na­tional squad camps will fea­ture an in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tion, with New Zealand and Eng­land send­ing teams to train and par­tic­i­pate in prac­tice matches.

The tall ath­lete pro­gram aims to foster and de­velop taller ath­letes and fea­tures spe­cial­ist coach­ing along with ad­di­tional de­vel­op­ment and learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for both goalies and de­fend­ers.
