Net­ball needs

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT - DONNA-MARIE MILNE

DOU­GLAS Net­ball is call­ing for new play­ers, coaches and um­pires to join their as­so­ci­a­tion be­fore com­pe­ti­tion starts in April.

Ex­pe­ri­ence or no ex­pe­ri­ence, all you need is pas­sion and com­mit­ment to­wards the game.

“We are look­ing for all grades, for all teams, ju­niors, be­gin­ners, ad­vanced play­ers - all are wel­come,” Dou­glas Net­ball pres­i­dent Coral Deen said

“We also ur­gently need a coach for our un­der 14s team, the Vipers and some of our other younger teams. Play­ers, par­ents, or any­one with net­ball knowl­edge is en­cour­aged to ap­ply.”

“We des­per­ately need um­pires and are hold­ing train­ing weekly on rule dis­cus­sion, ev­ery Tues­day be­tween 5pm and 6pm, at Moss­man In­door cen­tre, which will move to Port Dou­glas courts af­ter the up­com­ing school hol­i­days.”

Ex­pe­ri­ence is not essen- tial, Deen said.

“You don’t need to be a good player to be a good um­pire, very dif­fer­ent skills are re­quired for each,’’ she said.

“We are re­ally look­ing to sup­port the women in our lo­cal com­mu­nity and cre­ate a space where women can come and have some­thing for them­selves.’’

There are three di­vi­sions to suit ev­ery skill level
