A couple of weeks out from the start of the 2017 season and we are really excited for what is in store for Two Wells netball.
We have five junior coaches who we know will help our junior girls with their skills development, confidence and game play in Jamie Stringer and Amy Spoolder (Under 10), Alicia Stirling (13A), Tayla Southwell and Tamara Eves (13B), (Under 15) Rachel Wendland and Sheree Morrison (Under 17).
We are lower in numbers in our U13, U15 and U17 grades but overflowing in our U10 grade, which bodes well for the future.
The club will again offer Net Set Go for those aged 5-10 as an introduction to the skills of netball.
Online registration for Net Set Go is now open, with the 10-week program set to start on May 4.
Our senior squads are looking really strong.
We have a number of new players who we are sure will add a lot of value to the club.
We have some new coaches in Kiri Briscoe (A1) and Stephanie Seccafien (A3); Rachel Wendland will coach both the A4 and U15 teams.
We are still on the lookout for an A2 and A5 coach.
The A5 team is coming off a premiership in 2016 but is going into the season with a very different team.
The club didn’t have great success across the other senior grades in the 2016 finals series but teams are looking strong for this season and we are confident we will be competitive out there on Saturdays.
With a number of our umpires successfully completing and being awarded their umpires C badge in 2016 we are now able to run the coloured shirt program.
This will allow us to train up, mentor and support younger umpires as they learn.
The green shirt will signify that they are in training and so will be less intimidating to commence umpiring games.
All of the girls are excited to get the season underway and hopefully make a successful 2017 season across our grades!
