Plenty of fun on final Saturday.ANN EDEN September 4, 2014 3:23am
Seymour Junior Netball Association has yet again finished another season of junior netball. Saturday was our final game for the season followed by our medal presentations and sausage sizzle.
Well done to all 48 players of our 11/under and 13/under groups for your commitment to attend training and play games. We saw you all grow and develop new netball skills and a new understanding of how the game is played.
Netball offers many opportunities for children to keep fit, catch up with friends and learn some lifelong skills.
This year we introduced the dance and music routine during our Family Fun Night of Netball and again we had nearly 100 players, coaches, parents and grandparents participating just prior to the presentation of the awards on the day.
The dance activities, which have been designed with netball-related skills in mind, are a great way to develop a range of fundamental motor skills that are used in netball. This includes twisting, turning, bending, leaping, dodging, skipping and sliding. It is so good to see everyone out there joining in and having fun.
During the season our 13/under played games of Fast5 netball, and the modified format proved a hit with the players. Fast5 netball is fresh, exciting, and another avenue to get more people involved with the sport.
Our coaches again showed great dedication this year, looking after the players, teaching and instructing them in the skills and drills of the game. We had 10 of the coaches attend the Foundation Coaching course. This begins each coach’s development to become a great teacher of the game of netball. Congratulations to the participants.
No netball game is possible without umpires. To ensure the future of netball here in Seymour the association saw nearly 30 players and adults attend the Introduction to Netball sessions conducted by Leah Saunders, one of Netball Victoria’s umpire coach/trainers. Well done to Susan Ashworth, Josie Boyd and Corey Stirling who donned the umpire-in-training bibs and to Scott and Rachel Washington for umpiring our games of netball throughout the season.
Thank-you to all who attended this great day and we look forward to your return in 2015 and hope to see lots more new faces enjoying the great game of netball.
