The aim is to scout the nooks and crannies of the country for new talents to be invited into the National Junior and Senior Netball Teams.
The players in the Western Region who took part in the exercise were selected during the western Region Inter-District Netball Championship in August, 2009.
Mode of selection
The exercise took place at the Essipong Sports Stadium, Sekondi. Over fourteen (14) players from the Western Region took part in the exercise.
Selected players from Accra played the selected players in a one-hour match during which the Technical Personnel from the Netball Association of Ghana picked the players from the Western Region based on their skill, adequate understanding of the rules of Netball, application of rules of Netball during play and general comportment.

b) Safia Musah (WA/C)
c) Matilda Dowunna (C/WA)
