Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL SPORT - ❏ Ge­orge Smith

MONTO is about to wel­come net­ball for the 2013 sea­son.

The town’s club just had its sign-on day, with 30 play­ers signed up.

The first train­ing was on Wed­nes­day, and train­ing ses­sions are di­vided into 5-10 years at 3.30-4.30pm, 11-12 years at 4.30–5.30pm and 13-15 years at 5.30–6.30pm.

There will be four car­ni­vals this year, and the club will com­pete in the Cen­tral Bur­nett Chal­lenge in­volv­ing Monto, Mun­dub­bera, Gayn­dah and Biloela.

Com­pe­ti­tion starts in June, with fix­tures to be ad­vised.

Club pres­i­dent Tammy Woodward said the club al­ways did well and was con­fi­dent of fu­ture suc­cess with the ad­di­tion of younger play­ers.

“We al­ways do okay and hold our own, and it’s pleas­ing to see quite a few new young play­ers in the 5-15 age groups,” Woodward said.

Over-15s will play in the se­nior com­pe­ti­tion.

Se­niors usu­ally play among six teams on a Wed­nes­day night.

The club is still look­ing for play­ers, so if you want to be in­volved, come down to the Monto Sport­ing Com­plex on Wed­nes­days at 3.30pm.
