THE Fiji Primary Schools Netball Inter-District Championship Association has compiled a three-year strategic plan in a bid to further develop and sustain netball at primary school level.

In an interview at Labasa's Subrail Park yesterday, association president Susana Liga said the plan would include the training of coaches, officials and the netters.

"We have compiled a strategic plan that will guide us through within the next three years and this is to help us develop the sport at this level," she said.

"Part of the plan is to improve coaching skills and officials and also train and develop our young netball players.

"We also want to train our own teachers so they are the ones officiating in any tournament like this.

"This is part of our efforts to trim down on our expenditures. When our teachers are trained, we won't have to hire officials from outside to officiate in our tournaments.

"It's not that we don't appreciate the help from them (officials) but its part of our plan to cut down costs and spend within our budget."

Commenting on the ongoing national competition, Liga said the support had been overwhelming.

"The organisers here in the North have done a great job and we are thankful for bringing the game this side.

"We would also like to thank our sponsors, BSP, Patterson Shipping, CK's EZY Buy and many others for their tremendous support towards the three-day meet."
