TWO players from the Coolum District Netball Club were chosen as official flag bearers when the Queensland Firebirds marched onto the courts to face the Central Pulse on Sunday.

The girls, Eleanor Edwardsson and Geogia Laird, were selected as part of the ANZ Future Captains Promotion for the honour after their club was named the $500 grant recipient for ANZ's Junior Club of the Week.

The aim is to provide weekly grants to selected junior clubs for each round of the 2012 ANZ Championship Season.

The Firebirds went on to win the match against Pulse, their first victory of the season, with a final score of 58-32.

Queensland Firebirds goal keeper and ANZ Ambassador Laura Geitz is encouraging more junior netball clubs to apply for the ANZ Junior Club of the Week program.

"It's great to see ANZ supporting local clubs to help them develop the next generation of netball players," Ms Geitz said.

"Young players should get on board and share both their triumphs and hardships."

Applications are available online at anznetball.com.
