Ready set go at the Dolphins netball association

NETBALL: With the season less than three weeks away, good players numbers have been welcomed by the Curtis Coast Dolphins Netball Association have had.

New club president Kelly Caldwell said there was an opportunity for juniors who wanted to get into the game.

"For the second year running CCDNA will run a transition competition and it will provide a great introduction to netball for eight to 10-year-old players,” Caldwell said.

"Transition players start the season playing under modified rules, with the second half of the season played under standard competition rules, and culminating in a finals competition.

"Younger players aged six to seven, who are seeking their first introduction to the game, are encouraged to join the Netta's Program, which provides a fun skills based environment for youngsters to learn netball.”

All games are played on Wednesday nights at the Dennis Park Netball Courts on Boyne Island.

"Player registrations are now open for the 2017 season and pre-season fixtures commence on Wednesday, March 22 with the season competition fixtures commencing after the Easter school holidays on Wednesday, April 19,” Caldwell said.

"This season we are expecting to have close to 20 junior teams across the 11-and-under, 13U and 15U competition divisions. The senior competition will have approximately eight to 10 teams.”

Registration information can be found at the CCDNA website www.curtiscoast dolphinsnetball. sportingpulse.net.

The association has just completed construction of their new clubhouse and canteen, which was funded by a grant from the Gambling Community Benefit Fund.
