Nine Coolum netballers have been selected to participate in a Netball Queensland-sponsored academy to be run on the Sunshine Coast throughout the 2009 season.

Rebecca Adamson, Taylor McCann and Leitsha Scott-Davies were selected in the senior academy, while Julia O’Brien, Georgie Parchett, Maddy Ashman, Brienna Mortimer, Shayla Kennedy and Keita Steel made the junior academy.

The players, who range in age from 11 to 15 years, have been selected after competing in trials attended by players from all over the Sunshine Coast.

Judy Davis, as manager of Bendigo Community Bank branch at Marcoola, is sponsoring the senior academy players.

“It is truly a great achievement to see our young players being recognised by our region and having the opportunity to enhance their netball skills through coaching provided by Netball Queensland and Suncoast Regional Netball,” Ms Davis said.

“We’re delighted to be able to assist our sporting community by contributing funds to assist the players selected. We wish all the girls the very best of luck in their future netball achievements.”

The players will attend three development camps where they will be coached on a one-on-one basis.

Later in the year senior player Rebecca Adamson will attend a development camp in Brisbane where she will be viewed by the Queensland under-17 selectors.
