Junior sport on show

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Classies -

Junior net­ballers and foot­ballers from all over the re­gion will con­verge on Yar­ra­wonga on Sun­day, May 6, for the Yar­ra­wonga Junior Car­ni­val in its sec­ond year.

Hosted by the Yar­ra­wonga & Dis­trict Lit­tle League (foot­ball) and Yar­ra­wonga & Dis­trict Net­ball As­so­ci­a­tion, the event will draw hun­dreds of chil­dren and fam­i­lies to the Yar­ra­wonga Vic Park Precinct for what is promised to be a fan­tas­tic fun day of sport and en­ter­tain­ment.

From 9.30am ju­niors will play in a round robin for­mat fea­tur­ing foot­ball teams with 9 play­ers and net­ball teams with 7 plus a re­serve. Age groups sides in­clude 8, 10 and 12 years for the foot­ball and 9, 11 and 13 years for the net­ball.

Last year the event boasted over 30 teams and or­gan­is­ers are hop­ing for more this year.

Event com­mit­tee mem­ber Scott Jaques said the event would be sim­i­lar to the suc­cess­ful Rand Car­ni­val held in July.

“We have over thirty teams that have en­tered and are com­ing from nearby towns such as Myrtle­ford, Fin­ley, Corowa, Wan­garatta, Jer­ilderie, Co­bram, Coreen and of course lo­cal teams from Yar­ra­wonga, Mul­wala, Ren­nie and Tungamah,” Scott said.

“This will be a great op­por­tu­nity for lo­cal kids to fine tune their game.

“It’s free en­try, starts at 9.30am and will likely fin­ish around 1.30pm. There will be a canteen avail­able but the event is smoke and al­co­hol free.

“We en­cour­age all par­ents and friends to come down to watch and sup­port what will be a fan­tas­tic fundrais­ing event for junior sport and the Sa­cred Heart and Yar­ra­wonga P-12 Pri­mary Schools.

“We are still look­ing for some par­ent vol­un­teers from both Yar­ra­wonga pri­mary schools to help run canteen,” Scott said.

This great ini­tia­tive will see any prof­its made split evenly be­tween Yar­ra­wonga & Dis­trict Lit­tle League (foot­ball), Yar­ra­wonga & Dis­trict Net­ball As­so­ci­a­tion, Sa­cred Heart Pri­mary and Yar­ra­wonga P-12 Pri­mary.

For more in­for­ma­tion con­tact Scott Jaques on 0400 815 243.

Pic­tured are lo­cal junior net­ballers, foot­ballers and coaches pre­par­ing for the Yar­ra­wonga Junior Car­ni­val on May 6.
