VIDEO: #TeamGirls Queensland Firebirds regional tour
#TeamGirls flew north with the Queensland Firebirds netball team for the #TeamGirls Firebirds Regional Tour. The group visited local netball communities and clubs in Far North Queensland to share stories, tips, skills and have some fun on the netball court.
Firebirds players Caitlyn Nevins, Laura Clemesha and Mahalia Cassidy, joined the tour, visiting Cairns, Townsville and Mackay. The stars spent time with the media to talk about the Suncorp Super Netball and #TeamGirls, as well as running netball clinics for locals and hosting a special meet and greet at the Cairns Suncorp Store.
The group were lucky enough to be joined by some special guests including #TeamGirls ambassador and former Australian Diamonds player, Clare McMeniman, along with Ultimate #TeamGirls Firebirds fan competition winners Isabelle and Emilia. The sisters were flown to Cairns to join the netball players for the day and were treated to a special private lunch with the atheletes.
Check out the highlights from the day, below.
Ultimate #TeamGirls Firebirds fans meet their netball idols
It was an early start this morning for the winners of our Firebirds #TeamGirls Regional Tour competition, Isabelle and Millie.
They were up early to head up to Cairns to participate in the Firebirds clinic, and you've just finished up.
How was it Bel, what was your favourite part?
Oh, it was great. My favourite part was probably being able to play Fast5 netball, I've never actually done that before, but we got to have a go at that with Harley, so that was good.
I liked doing lots of different relays and races.
And today is all about being a #TeamGirl and that's what being a part of the Firebirds is about.
Who's your #TeamGirl? Who's that person in your life that girls you heaps of support? Probably just my really close friends and my family and stuff, I find are there for me.
Probably my best friend, Mia.
Well she like, she makes lots of funny jokes and she gets it. She gets everything.
She just knows you. Makes you feel good about yourself and really confident.
And that's what we want, we want #TeamGirls like them.
Well, I'm glad that you guys had a great time, congratulations, and we will hopefully see a little bit more of you this year, in the Firebirds purple.
So, we're signing out from Cairns, with the winners of our #TeamGirls comp!
