Positivity Prevails at Arana Netball Club

A monthly update from Arana Netball Club

The winner of The Hills Echo’s 2020 Positive or Pointless award is Isabella Barton

Covid may have disrupted our netball season but it certainly didn’t dampen our spirits!

As soon as we were given the go ahead to return to netball, our players and officials could not wait to get underway. With restrictions still in place at the end of the nine week blast, our annual trophy presentation evening was modified to suit. In true Arana Netball style, everyone adapted to join in on a different type of event. One by one teams arrived at the courts to hear words of praise from their proud coaches and receive their 2020 medallion. We were also very fortunate to have the support of The Hills Echo in acknowledging a very special club member for our ‘Positive or Pointless’ award.

Positive or Pointless, what is it? It’s showing good sportsmanship on and off the court. It’s approaching new, different or difficult experiences with a positive attitude. It’s parents/coaches and officials being proud of players’ achievements, regardless of the scoreboard, and it’s being part of something that supports self-esteem and personal growth.  I am proud to say that this behaviour is demonstrated across Arana Netball Club at all levels, however this does make choosing just one recipient each year a little challenging!

This year’s Hills Echo Positive or Pointless award recipient showed the type of courage and resilience that models the very reason sport plays an integral role in personal growth. It’s our pleasure to announce the recipient of the 2020 Echo News Positive or Pointless award is Isabella Barton. Each week Isabelle’s confidence grew and her enthusiasm to take the court with some very experienced players is a credit to her resilience.  Isabella was 100% a team player and her growth as a netballer this year was significant. Congratulations Isabella!
