Barbados will be pushing for a regional director as well as engaging tough opposition to lift netball in the island and throughout the region.

That declaration came from president of the Barbados Netball Association, Nisha Craigwell, minutes after she returned to the island with the national team which placed second at the American Federation of Netball Associations (AFNA) Championships in Calgary, Canada, to qualify for next year’s World Cup in Australia.

“We certainly wanted to defeat Trinidad and Tobago to win AFNA but we are concerned over the disparity between T&T and Barbados and the other teams in our region. We are hoping that the soonest installation of a regional director (for the Americas) will assist with the raising of the standard of netball in our region,” she said.

The director will sit on the world body to represent AFNA.
