New year netball

State League trials

Douglas Junior Netballers Chenoa Ryan and Rachael Ramsay have been training under Satellite Coach and Junior Netball Convenor Sharon Beechey for the last six weeks to ready themselves to trial for this year's Queensland State League.
The players travelled to Smithfield last Sunday for final preparations under the guidance of Marlin Coast president Heather McLaren.  The trial will be held this Sunday and the team will be announced next week.

Players 16 years and over are eligible to try out for the team who will contest in the State League starting in March and will play until June. If you fit the criteria and would like to trial please contact Sharon Beechey on the number below.
