Teams Almost Finalised for Arana Netball!

Following online registrations, club sign-on day, and trials over two weeks at the end of February, Arana Netball selectors and committee have been working on organising teams for this year’s competition.  Teams are now virtually finalised, and happily the club has more teams than last year

For anyone still wanting to play netball this year, it may not be too late to join a team with Arana, as in some age groups more players can still be accommodated to make up to nine players per team where possible.  To find out if there is the opportunity to play in the age group you are interested in, you should contact the club immediately, as any spaces may fill very quickly:  email the club at arananetballclub@gmail.comor phone 0404 132 007.

To be eligible to play, players need to be turning 7 from January to June this year and in grade 2, or older.  Players up to 10 years play with modified rules as they learn the game better, and after that there are competitive age grades, followed with Cadets, and Intermediates, before Open divisions.  Anyone over 19 years must play Open, while some younger players may also be put into Open teams as necessary.  There is a Masters division this year as well, so that players over 35 who would like to play but no longer feel they are so competitive, have a section to join. This should be great for some mums who would like to play in a team.

Teams will have worked out with their coaches which night they will train, with plenty of weeks to practise as Downey Park fixtures do not commence until 27thApril.  Players who have signed on also need to make sure they have their uniforms, including Arana socks, or to contact Kym, Uniform Convenor, on 0407 038 913.

Arana Netball monthly meetings are on the third Monday of each month at the Hills District Community Centre meeting rooms, commencing at 7.30pm.  The next meeting is 18thMarch.  Meetings are open for all connected with or interested in the running of the club, with senior players and members of new families especially welcomed to find out more about the club. Remember you can also follow Arana Netball Club on the Internet  and on Facebook.
