LEGENDARY Silver Ferns shooter Irene van Dyk will launch netball's new NetGO program in some local schools next month.

A press release issued on Monday, stated that the teachers would also be mentored by van Dyk.

"Teachers from six schools in the Suva area will be mentored by van Dyk as part of a Pacific Sporting Partnership (PSP) which was launched earlier this year aimed at building the capability of Fiji Netball to deliver the game to young people," the press release read.

"Netball New Zealand signed an agreement with Fiji Netball to introduce a Oceania Netball Federation accredited coaching program with goals of getting more children into the sport and making them healthier."

The South African-born shooter played 145 caps for New Zealand and also played 72 matches for South Africa.

"It's an amazing opportunity to help these teachers with the skills to take the game back to so many children in Fiji," the 45-year-old said.

"I think to help develop the game we love, we need to spread the knowledge to as many as we can," she said.
