Arana Netball Makes a Strong Start to Fixtures

Arana 9, 10 year old team, on the first day of fixtures.

With the commencement of Downey Park netball fixtures on 21st April, Arana Netball Club’s team have made a good start to the season.  

Non-competitive teams, Arana 9 and Arana 10, while not playing for points as they learn the game, have started very enthusiastically, and Arana’s competitive teams have started off with wins by most teams.  Well done to coaches and players for taking your teams to this point.

Arana has ten teams entered in fixtures this year, two Opens, an Intermediate, two Cadets, a 13 year-old, a twelve year-old, and an11 year-old team, along with the two modified teams.  While some teams have full numbers, there are still vacancies for players in some age groups, especially the young teams, players 8 to 10 years, born 2008, 2009, and 2010.  If still interested in playing club netball this year, please contact Club President, Jenna, on 0404 132 007 or the Registrar, Janice, on 0407 625 399.  The sooner late sign-ons make contact and register the fewer games they will miss.

Throughout the season, teams may compete in various carnivals organised by associations.  Local carnivals that Arana teams often compete in are the Downey Park Association, Pine Rivers, and Brisbane Netball Association (early August.)  Players over 18 years also often round off the year’s netball by organising and entering their own teams in the Netball Australia’s Netfest carnival, this year at the Sunshine Coast over the first weekend in October.

Thanks go to those who have already fulfilled their turn at the Arana Sports roster at the Arana Leagues Club.  Teams have been allocated raffle dates through the season, and as this is the Club’s main regular extra fund-raiser, support from parents and senior players is very important.  Special thanks and acknowledgement also go to the businesses that supported Arana Netball Club with donations for the Mothers’ Day raffle, to families who supported this by buying and selling the tickets, and to our Club fund-raiser co-ordinator, Lisa, for her organisation.

Arana Netball Club meetings are held monthly, on the third Monday, in the Arana Sports meeting room at the Hills District Community Hall, Dawson Parade, commencing at 7.30pm.  The next meeting is scheduled for 21st May, with meetings open for all interested to attend – parents, senior players, and ideally every team will have a representative at each meeting during the season.
