Four Firebirds Identified in National Talent Squad

Four Lorna Jane Queensland Firebirds have been selected in Netball Australia’s 2018-2019 National Talent Squad.

Kim Jenner, Tara Hinchliffe, Jemma Mi Mi and Mahalia Cassidy have been identified by the National Selection Panel as demonstrating capability and potential to progress to the Diamonds squad within the next three years (2019, 2020, 2021).

It is great news for the four Firebirds young guns, and comes off the back of Kim Jenner’s elevation to Diamonds Training Partner for the 2018 Quad Series.

All nationally selected athletes will have an Individual Athlete Performance Plan (IAPP) incorporating DTE needs, training objectives, wellbeing components and competition plans.

Netball Australia’s high performance strategy details the priority to provide a pathway that identifies, develops, manages, and progresses sufficient numbers and quality of athletes at each stage of the athlete pathway to meet and achieve current and future elite performance objectives.
