All the positions in the Fijian Under-21 side for the 2017 Netball World Youth Cup is still up for grabs, according to coach Vicki Wilson.

Fiji booked a spot in the World Youth Cup after being unbeaten in the Oceania Youth Netball Championships in Auckland in September.

With the Super League starting this weekend, Wilson said she will use that as part of the selection process for the international Test in January.

“The camp that the team will be going into plus the Super League games will form part of the next selection process,” Wilson said.

“This process will help us select the players who will compete in the January international series against Australia, New Zealand and Samoa.

“Even though the Fiji team has qualified for the World Championship, all positions in the team are up for selection.

“It is important that the players are selected on their current form, fitness and skill levels and any player who currently sits outside the squad will be considered for selection.”

The Under-21 squad will be having a two-week intensive training camp starting on November 21.

The Netball Youth World Cup is the first International Netball Federation competition in Africa and first world sporting event in Botswana.

A total of 20 countries across five regions will be taking part.
