"We now want to move on a stage further with recruiting for our teams. There will undoubtedly be young people who are not quite ready to play on the national stage but with coaching will soon be at the necessary standard.

"We would urge them to come along and see what they might achieve."

Players for the Swifts teams will be drawn from girls in school years 7-11 and boys in years 9-11.
