Netballs bright future

LEONGATHA hosted the inaugural U11s netball tournament and development day on Sunday morning.
Thirteen teams from as far as Phillip Island and Traralgon competed.
The tournament was a prequel to the annual tournament held in July.
“The U11s age group was our most popular section, and there are always too many entries,” tournament manager Philomena Smith said.
“We decided to give them their own tournament, but there will still be an U11 section in the July tournament.
“Many of the players play with associations or football/netball clubs. However, not all clubs have U11 teams, so sometimes they can go weeks without getting a game. This is just a bit of extra netball for them.”
The tournament was a fun day, with no scoring or presentations. A mass warm up kicked off the day at 9.30am
It was also a development day for coaches and training umpires, who watched over the round robins.
They played seven minute halves.
The annual tournament will be held on July 22, with U11s through to U17s and an All Abilities section.

Team spirit: the MDU U11s Belle Grabham-Andrews (coach), Mia Yates, Ayla Lafferty, Lucy Heber, Anna Grabham-Andrews, Shari Harris, Lucy Guy, Heidi Nicholas, Danay Grabham-Andrews and Tahlia Lafferty participated in the U11s tournament in Leongatha on Sunday.
