NAME: CANDICE GUERERO
DATE OF BIRTH: 15/04/1990
HOMETOWN: EMBACADERE, SAN FERNANDO
DISCIPLINE: NETBALL
POSITIONS: GD, WD, C, WA
HEIGHT: 5’9

Playing Netball began at the Primary School Level, where I learnt the basic skills needed and knowledge for the game. Playing competitively at San Fernando Netball League (SFNL) with my primary school team I developed my skills further. Not quitting, I went on to San Fernando Government Secondary where I quickly acquainted myself with the team and played there throughout my Secondary School years. Soon after leaving Secondary School in 2007, I joined Ambassadors Netball Club and continued playing in the San Fernando Netball League up to 2008. While playing in the SFNL League, I was recognised by the University of Trinidad and Tobago’s Head Coach Ms. Bridget Adams. Thereafter, I was called to trials for a Scholarship to join the team, and was successful.

Being a part of the UTT Netball Club means that I have to attend school, training and national trials and must maintain a minimum GPA of 3.0. In 2009 while on Scholarship at the UTT, I was selected on the U-21 national squad that represented Trinidad and Tobago at the World Youth Netball Championships in Cook Islands. Without looking back, I went on trials for the National Senior Team to which I also got selected, and I am still a member.

In the year 2010, I played in St. Lucia at the AFNA/WNC Qualifiers, and played against Canada, Barbados, USA, St. Lucia and St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Trinidad and Tobago placed 1st in the Championship. The Trinidad and Tobago team then qualified to participate in the World Netball Championship in Singapore. Later on in 2010, I participated in Commonwealth Games in India and played against Countries such as Australia, Malawi, Cook Islands, etc.

In preparation for Singapore, I had the opportunity to play against Jamaica and South Africa. During the WNC, I played against teams such as Malawi, Wales, New Zealand and Fiji.

I continue to play as a member of the University of Trinidad and Tobago Netball Club. Since my introduction to the Courts All Sectors Netball League in January 2008, that same year I was awarded best defending player in Alternative X Division. The next year I was promoted to the Championship Division and following year the Premiership Division. I have since made the All Star Team on three (3) occasions namely 2010, 2011 and 2012. In 2012, I was not only selected on the Courts All Sectors Netball League All Star Team but was also named the Most Valuable Player of the League. I am thankful to the ASNL for providing me with high quality competition, which assisted with my development and playing career.

Joelisa Cooper was unanimously selected as the Most Valuable Player in the COURTS All Sectors Netball League for Season 2011.

She also earned the award for the most valuable player on her team.

She is a strong, dedicated attacking player with unique netball skills. Her passion for the sport lead her to captain the country’s Under 21 netball team to the Cook Islands in 2009, where she demonstrated remarkable leadership skills and an extremely positive team spirit.

Over the years Joelisa participated in a number of regional and international tournaments/series including the Commonwealth Games 2010 in Delhi, India, the American Federation of Netball Association qualifiers held in St. Vincent and the Grenadines and St. Lucia in 2008 and 2009 respectively, and the 5Nations Series held in Singapore in 2007. She also played in the World Netball Championships held in New Zealand in 2007 and in Singapore in 2011.

In addition, Joelisa was the Trinidad and Tobago Netball Association’s nominee for the country’s most prestigious ‘Sportsperson of the Year Award’ for the years 2009 and 2010.

The participants of the COURTS All Sectors Netball League congratulate Joelisa on her achievements so far, and do wish that she continues onward and upward on her netball career path.
