Eliza Perkins has received an early Christmas present with the news that she has been selected in Netball NSW’s 2019 NSW Regional Talent Squad.
The regional squad, and NSW Talent Squad, were named following the recent trials for the 17/U and 19/U state teams.
The regional squad focuses solely on regional athletes, with a number identified by selectors as showing great potential during the state team trials.
It encompasses athletes from the seven regional areas in NSW; Hunter, West/Central West, Far North Coast, South Coast, Northern Inland, North Coast, Riverina.
The aim of the program is to provide the selected athletes with more opportunity to excel in netball, and access to specialist coaching and strength and conditioning sessions.
Perkins was part of the Talent Development Squad this year, and earlier in the year played for the Combined Catholic Colleges opens side.
She is planning to move to Sydney next year and play for the GWS Fury in the Netball NSW Premier League.
