PREPARATIONS are well in progress for the much-awaited Fiji Primary Schools IDC Netball tournament that is scheduled to be held in Labasa next week.

And organisers up North have assured that strict security patrol by the police and the military will be implemented to safeguard the movement of young netters from across the country who will converge at Subrail Park to take part in the inaugural event.

Macuata Primary Schools Netball president Disese Matarugu said this would be the first time for them to host the national meet.

"Preparations are well underway and we are fortunate that authorities such as the Commissioner Northern's office, town special administrator's office, police, military, Education Ministry and many more have been supporting us," she said.

"We are expecting more than 3000 people including netters, parents and teachers here next week and that's why we will beef up on patrol. There will be six grades from under nine to under-14.

"This is one event that we are all looking forward to because it is expected to bring together some of the fine young players and also future national reps."

Matarugu added that they would also be fundraising later in the year to help on of their players who have been selected in the Fiji under-13 team.

"We have one of our very own netter who has been chosen in the national under-13 side and we are planning to raise funds later in the year to help the team financially.

"Overall, the preparation for the tournament is progressing well and we look forward to hosting a memorable three-day event."

The tournament will be held from August 18 to 20.
