Vision: To select the best emerging talent across the State to represent Western Australia at the National Netball Championships.
The West Coast Fever Futures program is an integral step in the Netball WA pathway. We are looking for athletes who are ready to embark on the journey and enjoy the challenge. Athletes from this Squad are selected to represent WA in 17/U & 19/U National Netball Championship. The Squad composition will consist of a balanced group of athletes. Experienced selectors will be assessing athletes’ technical skills, court sense and netball IQ, speed, fitness, determination and work ethic. All athletes must attend trials, which consists of fitness testing (such as yoyo, vertical jump) and match play. A West Coast Fever Futures Squad of approximately 15 for each age group is selected.Futures Info

The West Australian State 17/U Team has secured bronze at the National Netball Championships in Darwin. The team finished the round-robin section in fourth place with four wins from their seven matches to set up a battle with top placed Queensland for a spot in the gold medal match. Queensland were undefeated heading into the clash with WA and took an early lead into quarter time after a couple of errors late from WA. WA fought back strongly in the second quarter to be down by one goal at half-time. However, Queensland came out firing in the third scoring five goals in a row to put pressure on the WA team. WA lifted in the last quarter and outscored the Queenslanders 11-5 to force the game into extra time. Nothing separated the sides after extra time, the match continued until one of the teams led two goals, and it was Queensland who rebounded a missed shot from WA and score off their centre pass to win the match. The following day, WA faced off against Victoria for bronze and didn’t let the disappointment of the Queensland loss affect them. They jumped the Vics to lead by six goals at the first break off the back of converting five of eight positive gains. The team looked composed and experienced in the second half especially when Victoria made changes in an attempt to disrupt the West Australians’ play. When challenged the WA side rose to the challenge to come away eight-goal winners to secure the Bronze Medal.
