Hoppers ready to fly

THE Grasshoppers Netball Club of Nasinu is ready to expose its talented players at the International Netball Festival on the Gold Coast in Australia.

The club will send a development side laced with its academy players, mostly under-13 players, to be exposed at international level from April 16-23.

Club coach Alumeci Sechs said preparations were well on track.

"The girls have been training since late January and are looking forward to the overseas exposure of playing counterparts from all over Australia and New Zealand," she said.

Sechs said most of the Grasshoppers development players had been playing for their respective primary schools while some were being introduced to the sport for the first time since joining the club.

"I am happy to see that we have developed new players at a young age within the Grasshoppers Netball Club.

"I am so glad that within my coaching career with Nasinu Netball Association, we have developed and witnessed a great pool of talented players who have developed throughout the years and, hopefully, they will break through to the Fiji Netball team with discipline, teamwork and commitment."

Meanwhile, young Lana Victourious Jon and Miliano Elo, who are part of the club, have been drafted into the Fiji Netball development squad after impressing at the national trials last month.

Fiji's ace shooter Taraima Rara and former national U21 rep Wasela Roko will represent the club at the Nasinu club competition which will be officially opened next weekend at the National Netball Centre.

Sechs acknowledged the players' parents who came on board to invest in their children's netball career.
