All teams are show­ing ex­cel­lent form in the lead-up to the North West Cham­pi­onships,

The tour­na­ment is weeks away now, so the Kar­ratha Academy Devel­op­ment Squads are play­ing and train­ing their hard­est.

The KADS un­der-12, un­der-14 and un­der-17 teams are all play­ing up a di­vi­sion at the mo­ment to pre­pare to rep­re­sent Kar­ratha at the com­pe­ti­tion.

This is de­signed to give them good prac­tice at play­ing tougher com­pe­ti­tion go­ing up against strong as­so­ci­a­tions such as Broome and Port Hed­land in the cham­pi­onships.

This round also saw men­tor­ing for the Green Shirt Um­pir­ing Pro­gram, a prac­ti­cal um­pir­ing course aimed at de­vel­op­ing and train­ing be­gin­ner um­pires of all ages to at­tain their Na­tional Um­pir­ing badge.

In game re­sults, the un­der-10 mod­i­fied rules games were a mixed bag.

Thun­der­bolts 19 over­pow­ered Thun­der­bolts 17 by 11 points and the Neilsen Cougars 10s locked out Te­quiras 10s by five points.

In the un­der-14 com­pe­ti­tion, Te­quiras 9 de­feated Thun­der­bolts 13 by a smash­ing 74 goals to 5 and Neilsen Cougars 14s lost to Wick­ham 14s.

In the un­der-17 com­pe­ti­tion, Pan­thers 3 de­feated Thun­der­bolts 9 and the KADS 14 crushed Pan­thers 4 by 53 points.
