Selections have been made after overviewing performances from the Under 15 National Academies Tournament and the U17s and U19s Netball Performance League (NPL).

Over the coming months, the Roses Academy will come together for regular camps in Loughborough, taking part in some friendly competition. Members of the Academy will also be up for selection for the upcoming Europe Netball U21 tournament at the start of October.

Interim Roses Academy Head Coach Leah Setsoafia commented: “I’m really looking forward to seeing the growth and learning over the next few months while they adapt to the Academy environment.

“We are coming off the back of a successful Academy year with medals at Europe Netball U17 and Commonwealth Youth Games. We now have an exciting opportunity to explore positional depth coming through the system and grow into their role on court.”

Thank you to all our selectors, and coaches within the NSL Franchises and local clubs for your support, and congratulations to all athletes selected.
