Nets refocused

Youth netball has not stopped since
the recent 2010 Jean Pierre Under-16 tournament in Barbados. Head coach of the team
and Cayman Islands Netball Association member Lyneth Monteith is refocused on
the way the association prepares its national youth teams for competitions.

Along with her assistant coaches
she is inviting players for trials to participate in future U16 and U18 competitions.

Prospective team members will be assessed
on their insight, personality, speed, attitude, technique/skill and reaction
over a period of months before final selection.

To be eligible for final selection
the player must be registered and play with a club or team that participates in
at least one of the association’s competitions.

Training will take place two days
per week Mondays and Wednesdays starting on Monday 10 May from 4pm to 5:30pm at
the Truman Bodden Sports Complex netball courts.

The following players are invited
to attend training: Shanai Allen, Noviann McLean, Kadejah Bodden, Hannah
Peralta, Tracey Hydes, Kristen Forbes, Sarah Hale, Kristina Watler, Glennique
Bodden, Rosemarie Wilson, Lexie Solomon, Tovina Gilpin, Adrian Mackey, Renee
Lindo, Kiana Rankine, Kelsie Bodden, Liana Benjamin, Tiana Duty and Hailee

In addition, any player who meets
the criteria above who are interested in trying out for the U16 or U18 national
teams are invited to attend practice at the times stated above.

This year’s youth tournament in Barbados was a
learning experience. Cayman placed fourth in its four-team group (which
included overall tournament winner Bermuda)
and won one game (by one point over St. Kitts). Many girls played well in their
first major netball competition away from home.

Aside from Monteith the girls were
guided by Molly-Ann Moore, Adena Miller and Whanda Fuad.

Previous national
team players are welcome to attend national team practices. Contact Lyneth Monteith
