Kyabram Netball Association is looking forward to a year of expansion as this season approaches.

Association president Colleen Sutton said the age groups had been lowered to help introduce younger players to netball through the Net Set Go program.

‘‘Girls aged from five to seven years will be able to play in the first stage of Net Set Go,’’ she said.

‘‘A lot of the young players are keen to play games, so this year those in the eight to 10 age group will be allocated into teams to play in modified games.’’

Two of the main elements of modified games rules are 10-minute quarters and lower goals.

‘‘We’re really keen to encourage younger girls to come out and try netball,’’ Mrs Sutton said.

The association will also be offering programs for players aged 12-and-under and 15-and-under.

The association is increasing its number of representative teams to five, with two teams to play tournaments in the under-11 age groups, two at under-13 and one at under-15.

A recent umpiring course, with a representative from Netball Victoria in attendance, was well supported and the association also hopes to run a coaching course.

Registrations are due by Friday, March 14 with teams to be decided by March 21, and the competition season to start on May 2.

Application forms are available from Bennett’s Sports, 161 Allan St, Kyabram.

For information, phone association president Colleen Sutton on 0419351229.
