Hun­dreds play­ing net­ball

South Waikato News - - SPORT -

Net­ball was the win­ner on Satur­day at the Me­mo­rial Sports­ground.

Hun­dreds of se­niors played their com­pe­ti­tion games be­fore lunch. The af­ter­noon pro­vided an op­por­tu­nity for grand­par­ents, par­ents and fam­i­lies to sup­port their pri­mary aged net­ballers and en­joy the chance to be in a com­pet­i­tive at­mos­phere.

Two hun­dred pri­mary net­ballers are now or­gan­ised for the 2014 sea­son. Coaches have a good op­por­tu­nity to learn the rules of the game when they at­tend the um­pires ses­sions on Mon­day nights from 7-8 pm at the net­ball pavil­ion.

Most coaches at pri­mary level only need an up­date on the rules. All se­nior club teams are striv­ing to have all their play­ers gain the Net­ball NZ the­ory qual­i­fi­ca­tion dur­ing the sea­son. This will give them a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of the game.

The three South Waikato sec­ondary school teams had mixed re­sults. Pu­taruru Col­lege A de­feated THSOB but lost to Toko­roa High School. For­est View High School lost to United Force and de­feated Ex­cu­sia while Toko­roa High School lost to Ea­gles.

Se­nior, sec­ondary school, intermediate and pri­mary school teams are all play­ing grad­ing games to set­tle for po­si­tions in grades for the spon­sored com­pe­ti­tion. There will be no games over the hol­i­days.

Reg­is­tra­tion forms for Fun Ferns are on the Toko­roa Net­ball Cen­tre web­site. These ses­sions will be for seven weeks and start on May 9 at 4 pm at the events cen­tre. The next sec­tion of games for all teams (se­nior and ju­nior) will be af­ter the hol­i­days.
