Maggie Caris in elite state netball squad

Horsham’s Maggie Caris has won selection to Netball Victoria’s Elite Development Squad.

Caris, who helped Horsham Saints to two Wimmera A Grade premierships, is among 33 athletes from Victoria Fury’s 19-and-under or 17-and-under state squads chosen to participate in the program.

The program aims to provide development and specialist training across two squads, giving the state’s most promising netballers an opportunity to work on their individual development at an elite level.

With the 2020 Deakin University Australian Netball League and 2020 National Netball Championships cancelled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Elite Development Squad will run alongside the Victorian Netball League season.

Caris, who also plays for Melbourne University Lightning, was last year named in an Australian squad for the 2021 Netball Youth World Cup alongside Edenhope’s Sacha McDonald.

The world cup is scheduled for June next year in Fiji.

Caris juggles netball with football, playing for Greater Western Victoria Rebels and has set her sights on joining sister Rene in the AFL Women’s competition. 

The 2020 AFL Women’s season was cancelled in March due to the pandemic.
