Australia’s preparations for the 2013 World Youth Netball Championships continues with a team named for November’s 21/U international tour to the Caribbean.

“This tour will be instrumental in our preparation for World Youth Cup in August next year,” Australian 21/U coach Carol Byers said.

“Playing national teams with a different style of netball and travelling to countries with a different culture is all part of the learning curve to develop both our team for the 2013 World Youth Netball Championships and to prepare players for their future netball career.”

The Australians will depart for the Caribbean on November 14.
