Laura Geitz takes a break from training to visit her family

FIREBIRDS and former Warwick district netball player Laura Geitz has taken time out of her busy schedule to return to her Allora home and spend time with her family, relax and chill out.

Or so she thought.

Instead, the Australian squad member has been doing intense off-season gym and training sessions and long runs in her week off from training at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra.

On Tuesday she was put through her paces by Netball Queensland president Jan Maggacis at the John Muir Centre at The Scots PGC College to improve her skills for the Australian selections this weekend.

"I'm based at Allora now the Firebirds' season is finished, but I'm just backwards and forwards from the camp in Canberra," Geitz said.

She practised footwork and agility skills she was told she needed to work on.

If selected on Tuesday, she will stay on with the Australian open team but it is not all bad news if she is unable to make the side.

"If I don't get selected on Tuesday, my break starts then," Geitz said.

"Firebirds pre-season training doesn't start again until late October."

If selected however, she will have a full plate the Australians will take on the New Zealand side next month and English side in October.
