Australia has named its netball squad for this year's Commonwealth Youth Games in Trinidad and Tobago - where the Fast5 format will be used for the first time.

A group of 10 players have been selected following the National Netball Championships, including Georgie Cleaver, Monika 'Otai, Tabitha Packer and Lucy Voyvodic, who will all lead the team.

Nicola Barge, Jada Delaney, Sasha-May Flegler, Gemma Hutchings, Mia Lavis and Clare Wigley have also been chosen, with the Games due to run between August 4 and 11.

"I can't wait to play for Australia's Fast5 netball team with an incredible group of emerging athletes from across the country," said Cleaver.

"My team-mates and I will wear the green and gold with immense pride.

"This is an exciting development opportunity to gain exposure to international competition and experience a multi-sport environment, while creating memories and progressing as an athlete."

Packer and Voyvodic were part of the South Australia team which won the under-19 title at the National Championships, with Packer named the grand final's most valuable player (MVP).

Delaney, Fleger and Hutchings won the under-17 title with Queensland, with Delaney the MVP.

"It is always an honour to represent your country and even more exciting to see our next generation of netballers play at the 2023 Commonwealth Youth Games," said Netball Australia's pathway head coach Anita Keelan.

"The opportunity to play Fast5 and to experience all that Trinidad and Tobago and the Commonwealth Youth Games has to offer is extremely exciting for both athletes and staff.

"It will be great to see firsthand the growth that these athletes will experience by being a part of the Australian team."

The Fast5 format features five-a-side teams instead of seven, as well as shorter quarters, power plays and "super shots".

Hosts Trinidad and Tobago and Australia are due to joined by England, South Africa, Botswana, Canada, St Vincent and the Grenadines and Scotland for the inaugural Commonwealth Youth Games tournament.

Netball in any form has not been played at the Commonwealth Youth Games before.

Australia won the netball title at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, and lifted the World Cup title 11 times.
