Girl’s National Academy Head Coach Ilona Loewnau said: “I was overwhelmed by the amount of high-quality players I got to see on a day. The standard of handball skills and talent amongst the girls was fantastic. It is without a doubt, a testament to the high-quality coaching these girls received in their own clubs.  

“Now the National Academy squad has been selected, I'm looking forward to working with the athletes and their club coaches over the next few months. I am excited about the potential that this group holds. I feel there is a good depth of skill-full committed, and athletic young women who are eager to learn, develop and continue to inspire future generations to play our sport. I'm committed to produce great improvements for the athletes on an individual level.”
