LDNA promotes netball for all

LEONGATHA and District Netball Association (LDNA) commenced its first week of competition recently with 41 teams equating to in excess of 328 players from across seven clubs.
What a wonderful start to a season full of firsts. Umpire coordinator Erin Baudinette has spent the last three weeks educating the 30 plus umpires, hundreds of players, coaches and parents in the new national rules implemented this year.
LDNA also saw 18 boys take part in the competition, with five boys in the 15 and Under competition, a landmark initiative that the association has made a ruling on this year, welcoming inclusion and diversity into the game of netball locally.
The association’s All Abilities program has also continued to grow this year as well commencing with 10 participants, headed by Rebecca Arnason and Lisa Kuhne.
After three weeks of a Come and Try Program supported by GippSport, Netball Victoria and LDNA, the team is aiming for at least enough participants to field two teams.  The All Abilities program starts at 10am every Saturday at the courts. For anyone interested in joining the All Abilities program please come and join us at 9.45am Saturday.
Programs start at 10am in the morning with NetSetGo and the All Abilities program and other games run through to 3.30pm, completing with the seniors competition.
The NetSetGo program is tailored for boys and girls aged seven, turning eight and older by December 31, 2016, that enables all individuals to experience personal achievement in terms of competence, enhanced self-esteem, social cooperation, maximum participation and skill development in a fun environment.
The program starts at 10am on Saturday mornings for 45 minutes and cost $70 for the season.  For more information email: leongathaanddistrictnetball@gmail.com  or call our NetSetGo Coordinator: Sue Ritchie on 0413 000 877.
LDNA prides itself on being able to offer the opportunity for everyone to play netball.
