THE pin-up girl of Australian netball, Laura Geitz, is on her way to Rockhampton as part of a big road trip through Central Queensland.

The talented Mission Queensland Firebird defender has had a stellar year culminating with her winning Australia's highest accolade for a netballer - the Liz Ellis Diamond.

From winning the ANZ Championship undefeated, to being part of the 2011 World Netball Championship winning team and helping Australia take back the world number one netball ranking, it's been an action-packed year for Geitz.

But on top of all her successes on court, off the court she has also shone.

Gietz has managed to launch a clothing line and deliver a series of netball clinics around the state.

To end the year, she is heading to CQ to hold clinics to help young netballers in regional Queensland hone their skills.

Kicking off in Rockhampton on Saturday, December 17 Laura will then visit Yeppoon, Biloela and Gladstone before heading to other parts of the state.

Geitz said she was excited to be able to hit the road.

"Growing up in a regional area, I know how hard it is for young netballers to have access to their favourite netball stars," she said.

"Regional netballers have to work extra hard to fulfil their netball dreams, but it is possible.

"This is why I have decided to hit the road to visit some of my fans in regional Queensland."

Laura will also be bringing the whole range of her popular sporting apparel, which will be available to buy at the clinics.
