Finals are in sight for Arana Netball

As the end of the 2019 winter netball fixture is fast approaching, teams are now able to ascertain their chances of competing in finals.  For seven and eight team competitions, the last fixture is scheduled for 17thAugust, with three weeks of finals to follow.  Grades with five or six teams will finish a week later, and all grades have grand finals scheduled for 7thSeptember.

Arana 1, Opens Div. 6 has as the season progressed, improved their position on the points ladder, and have a good chance of finishing in second position.  Arana 4, Intermediate 7, have after regrading, moved up the table to also have a good chance of finishing second.  Arana 5, Cadet 6, have through the season been near the top of the points ladder, and so will finish well.  Arana’s second Cadet team, Arana 6, Cadet 8, is around the middle of the table and so has a good chance of competing in finals.

Arana Netball’s younger competitive teams are all looking good this close to finals.  Arana 7, 13 Years Div. 6, is on top of their table; Arana 8, regraded up to 12Yrs Div. 3, is maintaining a position around the middle of the table thus having a good chance for finals; Arana 9, 12Yrs Div.7, has maintained the top spot on the ladder for much of the season; and Arana 10, 11Yrs Div.7, appears set to stay in the top half of the ladder.

This means that up to eight Arana teams could be playing in the finals later in August, as long as current trends continue.

August is the time for Arana Netball Club’s Annual General Meeting. This will be on Monday 19thAugust, at 7.30pm, in the Arana Sports meeting room in front of the Community Hall, Patricks Road, Arana Hills.  At the A.G.M. all positions are declared vacant, and as there are always some Committee people unable to continue in their current roles, new faces are needed and welcome. A regular monthly club meeting will follow the A.G.M.

Meanwhile the Committee are working on a new Management Plan for the club to work with over the next few years. Thanks to those who competed the quick online survey for this, and those who came to the planning meeting. Especial acknowledgement goes to the Moreton Bay Regional Council, for the grant money making the work on the new plan possible,

Planning is also underway for Presentation night, to wind up the netball season.  This is planned for Saturday 14thSeptember.  Full final details for the evening will be distributed to families closer to the date.

Later in the year, Arana Netball is again offering free training sessions for new young players, especially those turning 8 next year (born in 2012) or born up to June 30th2013. This introductory clinic is also available and helpful to other young players, either new to netball or only beginning to develop skills.  The clinic will be weekly from 14thOctober to 12thNovember.  If interested, please contact the club via arananetballregistrar@gmail.com
