Following a fitness test for its National Squad in early June, Netball Fiji will now regroup its two squads, the National and U-21s in two training camps in Suva on Saturday July 18th and on Saturday July 25th.
These sessions are the first in a series of planned sessions from July until November to allow athletes to get back into formal training sessions post COVID-19 following lifting of restrictions.
The current squad include players from the 2019 World Cup team, Matila Vocea, Laisani Waqa, Alisi Qalo, Lydia Panapasa, Ema Mualuvu, Aliti Toribau and Episake Kahatoka.
Returning to the squad are seasoned players, Alesi Waqa, Vaiti Waqatabu, Nina Cirikisuva and Alisi Naqiri.
These athletes will be joined by more than 20 members of the 21 squad named following last year’s National Championships and four promising players identified under the Talent Identification Program.
Overseas based athletes will continue their own training programs and Netball Fiji will make contact prior to scheduled matches and tours if and when restrictions are lifted.
Both sessions will be run by NetGo Country Co-ordinator Unaisi Rokoura.
