Suva Netball Association (SNA) is currently holding talks with overseas tournament organisers for a possible end of the year tour for one of their teams.

SNA vice-president Gabriel Qoro said yesterday the association is currently having discussions on the matter and finalising the dates of the tournaments.

He confirmed that the proposed  destination is Australia.

“It will most probably be on the Fiji Day weekend or maybe we will move it to December, but the tour is definitely happening,” he said.

The former national netball coach said this was a way of boosting their competition as their clubs would be interested to be part of the tour.

“At least they will know that it is not just about the same old club competition year in and year out, but rather gives them something to work towards.”

 

BACK TO ROOTS

Qoro also highlighted they would be focusing on the development of the game.

“We will start right from the grassroots level and work our way up to the seniors.”

He said the association are working on a pathway for all their players and continuously would be making necessary changes to fine- tune their programme.

“That is why we welcome new ideas on the development side of the sport. We are hoping to maintain our winning streak and dominance in the Fiji Netball Interdistrict Competition and also in any other national competitions as well.”

 

COMMUNITY APPROACH

The association is also urging their affiliated clubs to get involved in community work.

“This will happen during the season, where all our clubs will either be picking up rubbish at some park, or visiting and cleaning elderly homes and hospitals. It is mandatory for all our affiliated clubs to list the names of the organisations and areas they will be operating in,” he said

Qoro said this was one of their many programmes they would be implementing throughout the season.
