VICTORIAN player Elyse Villani will be in Ballarat today as part of Junior Spirit Camp for girls across the Central Highlands region.
The camp will run from 5:30pm-7:30pm at Marty Busch Reserve, Sebastopol number two oval.
Villani will also provide coaching to girls from the Central Highlands Female Pathways under-14, under-16 and under-18 squads as well as invited girls from the MILO T20 Blast and MILO in2CRICKET programs.
The Junior Spirit Camp promotes the "Born to Play" message to introduce girls aged under-18 to the sport in a fun and engaging environment.
Villani was yesterday announced in the preliminary Southern Stars squad for the ICC Women's World Cup in 2013. Last week, she helped the VicSpirit team record the largest WNCL score of 3-418 when she top-scored with 173 from 129 deliveries against South Australia. The previous day in the WT20 game, Villani made 50 not out from just 39 balls.
Villani will tonight present the 2012/13 Central Highlands under-18 girls squad with their caps, with the Highlanders beginning the state championships from Tuesday, December 11 in Melbourne.
