After more than a decade leading the Two Wells Netball Club as president, long-serving member and player, Tanya Kent, has stepped down from the position.

Taking up the role for the first time is Stephanie Walker, who is playing her fifth season at the club this year, with Tanya stepping into the treasurer’s role.

As well as being a junior coach in previous years, Steph has been an integral social committee member, coordinating a variety of fun social events throughout the season for the past few years.

She was also the club’s netball secretary last year.

“I’m very excited about the 2014 season,” Steph said.

“2013 was planned as a development year for the senior girls and after some very strong performances in the finals I feel we will continue to improve in 2014 and hopefully come home with even more premierships.

“As a player I am itching to get back out on court, but as a committee member I am really looking forward to unveiling the new and improved facilities at the club.”

A focus of Steph’s this year is to promote training and development in the netball club, with both junior and senior players to undergo coaching and umpire courses.

Steph is also excited about the establishment of a junior netball sub committee at the club.

“The junior sub committee has great enthusiasm and some really good ideas, so I look forward to working with them this season,” she said.

“At this stage we will be fielding all senior and junior grades.

“Our numbers where high last year and we have a handful of senior girls returning to the club this season, so we hope to have some very strong sides.

“We have received a couple of coaching applications, but all positions are still open for applications and I would encourage anyone interested to contact us.”

Pre-season training commenced last month and the first official grading trials will begin on Tuesday February 18.
