Umpiring skills on offer to youngsters

YARALLA Dynamics Netball Club juniors will this season have the chance to improve their umpiring skills in addi- tion to their performance on the court.

The club has introduced an umpires' training and develop- ment program designed to pro- vide youngsters, and interested parents, with the skills and knowledge necessary for offici- ating junior fixture matches.

Yaralla Dynamics spokes- woman Tracey Davis said club was urgently seeking players aged 8-12 for fixture play, add- ing that boys aged up to 12 can also participate.

'Technically, netball is just as challenging as football,'' Da- vis said.

'It would be great to see the boys come onboard.'

Davis said the club had en- joyed plenty of success on court in recent seasons and was look- ing to a good number of junior recruits to continue that run.

While young juniors is the club's most urgent recruitment need, Davis said players of all ages and experience were wel- come at the club's sign-on at the GNA courts on Saturday from 2pm-3pm.

Another sign-on will be con- ducted on February 4.
