Fuller had members of the Tier 1 NIAS squad straining and stretching to their best to win a berth in the NIAS team to represent at the upcoming NIB Games in Maitland.

NIAS’s Pip Benham said a squad of 12 would be picked at the next regional training session in Armidale on Sunday.

“The squad will be announced next Monday,” Benham said.

“The NIB Games will be held in Maitland on Thursday and Friday, July 10 and 11.”

Benham also said  Netball NSW had recently announced that Swifts players will be ambassadors for each regional academy. 

“Brooke Miller is NIAS’s ambassador,” she said.

“Brooke will be with the NIAS team at the NIB Games and is hopeful of visiting the region as athletes prepare for the U17 NSW selections in September 2014.”
