Just missing selection in 2019, top quality shooter Maia Wilson will make her debut at the sport’s pinnacle event at Netball World Cup 2023, in South Africa.
A precocious young talent, Wilson was a Silver Fern by the end of her debut season (2016) at the elite level at just 19 years of age and was a non-travelling reserve for the Silver Ferns 2019 World Cup campaign.
Having already played basketball for New Zealand when she joined the Pulse in her first year out of college in 2016, Wilson displayed the rich array of qualities that have taken her on a meteoric rise.
Blessed with an unflappable temperament, accuracy and strong netballing nous, Wilson has built on her repertoire through improved fitness and more exposure at the top level. A foundation member with the Stars and elevated as the youngest national league captain, the shooter has continued to refine her game and push to new levels with her ability to switch between a holding or moving game. She delivered her best season at domestic level in 2023, highlighted by increased volume and accuracy.
Wilson made her Commonwealth Games debut in 2022, and was a key performer in the NZ U21 team’s World Youth Cup title win in 2017.
