The side will also compete in three days of President Shield competition, which is a tournament between state teams and can lead to national selection.

Rounding off a busy interstate journey will be the prestigious Junior Masters, in which local bowlers Emily McKellar and Callum Borck have earned a place after winning the WA Masters in March.

The team won a $1000 grant for the trip to NSW after scoring the most votes in a monthly competition run by a major bank.
