Netball Party

We ran our very first Netball Party at Ballarat Sports Events Centre on 4th July and had a blast. It was a 2 hour session for participants aged between 5 and 10 years. We began with some colouring, moved into a netball warm up and warm up games. In small groups netball dresses were created and are now hanging up in the centre. We then moved into some netball passing activities. Participants ended the Party by getting a photo with Foxy!

We’d like to thank all who came to our party.
Make sure you keep an eye out for the next one!! #netballparty

Netball Victoria Community Clinic

The July Community Clinic saw Netball Victoria head to Warrnambool. There were 70 people that participated across the 2 sessions.

The morning session was for 7-12 year olds. These participants went through a warm up, warm up games, passing technique, defending technique and shooting technique. The session finished with either a shooting game or match play. Each participant left the clinic with a showbag.

The afternoon session was for those aged 13 to 17. This group were lucky enough to have 17 & Under State Coach/19 & Under Geelong Cougars coach take the participants through what a cougars training session would be like. The focus of the session was footwork and basic technique.

Port Fairy player Ava Pierce who is in the Geelong Cougars 19 & Under team assisted Mel in the session and gave the girls a talk about how she has progressed through the pathway to get where she is today.

Barwon Junior Netball Championship

The Barwon Junior Netball Championship format change slightly for 2019. Rather than the 10 week competition as done in previous years the committee decided to play a 1 day tournament and open the competition up to other leagues and association in the region. This change in the format saw Hampden Football Netball League, Maryborough Castlemaine & District Football Netball League and South Geelong Netball Association all enter teams.

In addition to the tournament style day a pathway workshop was included for all players coaches and umpires. The committee would like to thank Zanna Woods, Mel Taylor and Nakita Page in presenting these workshops.
Talent Identification Scouts were in attendance looking at 13&U players for the Barwon Sports Academy. Annie Castle also attended the day to give feedback to umpires throughout their matches.

Special mention to Geelong Central Netball Association for opening up the canteen.
