Dolphins welcome new players to association
NETBALL: With a new canteen, all the ingredients are set for a sweet opening to the Curtis Coast Dolphins Netball Association season.
More than 300 members will either watch or play, or both, numerous senior and junior matches when the season proper commences on Wednesday, April 18.
CCDNA registrar Jodie Lambert encourages new senior and junior players to join a club with the information and sign-on day on February 24 from 10am-1pm at Dennis Park, Boyne Island.
Existing members can register online on Wednesday, February 21. "We're hoping to encourage the Gladstone people to come out to us because I know a lot of the Boyne-Tannum a few years ago used to go in town for netball if they want to play a couple of times a week," Lambert said. She added there is likely to be 12 senior teams with six in in both the A and B divisions respectively.
The juniors start from the Netters (6-7 years) through to 15 years after which players have the chance to play at senior level.
Pre-season games are on March 21 and 28 and Lambert said there will be ETPOS facilities available on Saturday week.
