Claws put aspiring juniors through their paces

IT WAS back to basics for about 70 young netballers who recently headed to Emerald for a two-day camp.

The players from across the Capricorn region attended the Rockhampton Leagues Club Capricorn Claws 12 and 13 Years Talent Camp.

They got to work with Claws' coach Katrina Whitham, manager Phebe Chelepy and players Kira-Lee Leo, Courtney Wheeler, Shenae Grant and Bec Thompson.

The camp focused on match-play, ball skills, fitness and nutrition.

Whitham said the camp brought netball "back to the basics" with the girls working on passing, footwork and court positioning.
