Last year was a year like no other, where we all learned to pivot and netball distancing rules entered into our everyday lives. Keeping 1.5 metres apart and ‘no contact’ became normal off court.
However, Phoenix Netball Club adjusted to the situation and feel fortunate to have still participated in a season of club Netball at Downey Park. They used elbow taps instead of handshakes and high fives. Hands and equipment were thoroughly sanitized, training schedules modified and game times altered. In fact, the club had 21 players and 4 coaches representing their respective associations. It was also a year when the club turned 10!
This year, Phoenix Netball will extend their 10th birthday celebrations into 2021. They look forward to a new season catching up with returning players, coaches, families and welcoming new members to their wonderful club. It is in this spirit that they invite members of the community to join them!
If you weren’t familiar with Phoenix Netball, they are based in Ferny Grove and are a family orientated club which demonstrates a love and passion for the game of Netball. As a club, they strive to ‘Rise to the Challenge’ and continue to grow the development of their players, umpires and coaches throughout the season, giving all players an opportunity to be the best they can be by improving on their skills and abilities.
Phoenix Netball trains during the week at Tramway Street, Ferny Grove and plays Saturdays at Downey Park Netball Association, Windsor. They welcome all players 7.5 years or older (born after 30/06/2014) and support the development of their youngest players (7.5 – 10 years) in the NetSetGo (modified rules) competition and competitive competition from 11 years – Opens (born 2010 or earlier).
Registrations open online mid January and an information and uniform night will be held on Thursday 28th January 5pm – 7pm at our courts. Trials for our competitive age group (11 years – Opens, born 2010 or earlier) will be held Saturday 30th January and Saturday 6th February at our courts.
