Four young netballers are on the pathway to success after being selected for the Fever In Time State Academy squad, an opportunity to develop and maximise their abilities further.

Port Hedland Netball Association’s Ashleigh Weyer and triplets Roberta, Lauren and Jacinta Ramirez-Smith will learn from some of the best coaches and development units in the State.

The Ramirez-Smith sisters were selected into the Develop a Diamond Regional Academy when they were 14 years old, and were given the opportunity to be developed by coaches and played against other regions in WA.

Since then, they have gone from strength to strength.

Their passion to play netball started at a young age, and the girls would carry a netball around with them at every chance they got.

The triplets said they were stoked to be selected into the FIT Academy and would use the program as an opportunity to develop and drink in as much netball knowledge as possible.

“PHNA have provided development opportunities and pathways from local association pathway selections into Regional North West Academy team through to the Develop a Diamond Regional Academy Program which provides successful athletes in regional areas to compete at a high level,” they said.

In between playing netball, the triplets are studying Bachelor in Health Science at Curtin University.

The Fever in Time program involves three training sessions a week, with a combination of strength and conditioning, on-court training programs and match play, with the first session to be held on October 15.
