The Queensland Firebirds have re-signed 2023 club captain Kim Ravaillion for the 2024 Super Netball season.

Ravaillion is a two time premiership player with the Firebirds having won the trophy in 2015 and 2016. She has served as captain for the past two seasons and has worn the purple dress for eight.

Just one game shy of her 150th game milestone, Ravaillion will look to dominate the mid-court, proving experience does wonders.

The 30-year-old is a World Cup winner and Commonwealth Games gold medalist who has represented Australia on 60 occasions. She is also a Laura Geitz medallist and was the 2016 ANZ Championship Series Finals MVP.

After winning her second premiership, Ravaillion joined Collingwood from 2017 to 2019 until having her baby Georgie. The Sydney local returned to her original ANZ Championship club in the Firebirds and was appointed captain in the 2022 season.

Head Coach Bed Bulley described Ravaillion as a natural athlete and leader.

β€œShe sets a high standard of professionalism for the entire team to aspire to and her desire to win and achieve lies at the heart of everything she does,” Bulley said.

β€œI am excited to have Kim as part of the 2024 group and working with her as we aim to continue to build on the foundations we established in the 2023 season.”
