Windhoek – New coach Francois van der Merwe is leading his first ever five-day camp for the Namibian women’s national team.

The camp, at the JC Sports Indoor training facility in Windhoek owned by Eagles player Craig Williams, ends on January 22 and includes 14 players from Windhoek and Coastal.

The selected 14 players are Irené van Zyl (c), Yasmeen Khan (wk), Adri van der Merwe, Kayleen Green, Suné Wittmann, Sylvia Shihepo, Arassta Diergaardt, Wilka Mwatile, Mekelanye Mwatile, Reehana Khan, Shiomwenyo Namusha, Didi Foerster, Victoria Hamunyela and Phia Gerber.

The training sessions include net-facing, left-arm spin (strike rotation), one-on-one with a bowling machine, batting skills, bowling skills, and fielding. Mental health is vital and the ladies have a daily session where they focus on how to be better athletes. The sessions include how to deal with fear, boost confidence, mental strength, and setting and achieving goals.

Van der Merwe said, “It is fortunate that the squad can still practice with the current COVID 19 regulations, and training at JC Sports has been convenient especially with the unpredictable weather. The girls are starting to hit the balls harder and bowling faster, it was great to have input from Craig Williams on their performance and training sessions.

“It is great to have all 14 payers together for the first time at the same place, and we believe that they are the ultimate 14 players set to represent Namibia.”
