AUSTRALIAN Diamonds representatives Catherine Cox and Rebecca Bulley will lead coaching clinics for Mallee junior netballers during the school holidays.

The clinics are designed to provide young netballers with an opportunity to interact with elite role models.

The clinics will be at Blackburn Park at Ouyen on July 7.

Netballers aged 10 to 13 will be put through their paces at 4pm, with a session for juniors aged 14 to 17 at 5pm.

Both sessions will focus on skill development and include components on specialists areas of attack -–Cox – and defence – Bulley.

Western Vic Football operations manager Nikki Ervin said each clinic was restricted to 40 players.

“The players involved in the clinic will each receive some goodies to take home and will have plenty of time to pick Cath and Rebecca’s brains in a question and answer section,” she said.

“Naturally, there will also be time for autographs and photos.

“Association and club coaches are also invited to come along and observe the clinic, perhaps gaining some new ideas and tricks. 

“They are welcome to ask as many questions as they wish.”

Ms Ervin said people could call Raelene Vine on 0407 849 174 or email gvine4@bigpond.com to register before Wednesday, July 2.
