With several fixture games now played, Arana Netball Club teams are enjoying the season playing at Downey Park. Several teams have started off particularly well in terms of winning games, with the following teams all being in the top half of their points ladders so far. These are Arana 1, Opens Div. 6; Arana 5, Cadet Div. 7; Arana 6, Cadet Div. 9; Arana 7, 13Yrs Div. 6; Arana 8, 12Yrs Div.4; and Arana 9 12Yrs Div7. The 11 year old team has also started their first year of competition well, with a spattering of wins and losses, leaving them around the middle of the ladder.
At the end of the first cycle of fixtures in respective competitions, re-grading may occur in various grades, when it is perceived that a team is proving too strong or too inexperienced for the grade in which they started the season. Arana teams may be affected directly (if moved themselves) or indirectly by this, the latter when another team in their grade is moved.
This means that points ladders will start to consolidate in the second part of the season, from re-grading as well as from teams improving. It is likely that some Arana teams will strengthen their game as the season progresses.
Arana Netball Club meetings are held on the third Monday of each month, at the Arana Sports meeting room located in the front area of the Hills District Community Centre, Dawson Parade, Arana Hills, commencing at 7.30pm. Meetings are open for all to attend, and each team should be represented at these meetings during the season. The next meeting is scheduled for Monday 17th June. All parents and senior players are reminded that the A.G.M. will coincide with the August meeting, and as always new faces will be needed to take on some of the committee roles for the next year.
