This year the program was run by Zara Risby.

Zara’s innovative games and netball teaching skills kept all 17 participants enrolled in this years program coming back every week.

Medowie Netball was thankful to Zara for her commitment in running this years program.

Many in this years ‘Net’ program will progress and play next season in the next tier ‘Set’ playing a game on a Saturday morning with some modified rules. The ‘Set’ is for those aged eight to nine years, and then the ‘GO’ tier for those aged ten years

This years ‘Net’ program came to a close, with a medal and certificate awarding pizza party.

Medowie Netball accepts the NSW Government active kids vouchers, the use of which enabled many to participate in this program for free.

Participants also receive a welcome pack from Netball NSW which included a Netball and T Shirt.

Cheryl Smith, President of Medowie Netball Club, told News Of The Area, “It was great to watch this years ‘Net’ participants show their learnt skills by playing a netball game this week, much fun was had by the girls and the parents watching.”

“The feedback from out ‘Net’ program is really positive, many parents tell me that the ‘Net’ program allowed their child to know a familiar face when starting a new preschool or school.”

“It was great to see so many people use the ‘active kids vouchers’ and enrol children in a sport that may not of been financially possible for some families before,” she said.

Medowie Netball runs this program every year, you can follow their facebook or web page for upcoming events.

Online registrations for the 2019 season should commence January/February.
