Emily Jones (13DN)
Emily has been selected for the Netball New Zealand pathway development programme.
The selections recognise the cream of New Zealand’s secondary school talent and the start of the next generation’s developmental pathway.
NZSS coaches Te Aroha Keenan and Pelesa Semu together with the NNZ Emerging Talent Selection Panel of Adrianne Morrin, Robin Manihera and Nicky Patterson have selected 60 players for two camps being held in North Island and 25 for the South Island camp.
The selection process has been supported by working closely with Zone staff to identify the up and coming talent from each region.
The rising young prospects will be put through their paces across a number of areas which will include on and off-court specifics combining the playing side as well as the wider issues of progressing to top-flight netball.
From the three camps running nationally, NNZ selectors will choose their NZSS netball squad.
Keira Smith (12TN)
The World School Sevens tournament was held 22-23 January in Pakuranga. Keira was selected for the Girls Tournament Team which is a great accomplishment.
