Stalling Games Was Worth the Effort

Article excerpt

THE Murwillumbah Netball Association successfully played the waiting game with the weather on the weekend, postponing all games until after 10am on Saturday.

The round was subsequently completed and the Funnet all left with smiles on their faces.

The round of Netter games were well-matched and the enthusiasm of all players was a delight to see.

The idea of the Netter age is that the children learn the rules of netball, build on the skills they need to play and enjoy the game without the need for winners and losers.

Each player gets to rotate through all the team positions, providing each team member with a good grounding and understanding of the game.

In this grade, winning is judged by enjoyment. If you have a good game, then everyone is a winner. This is a great age for spectators!

The 11/12 grade is when the teams are first introduced to scoring a win or a loss. Each week coaches for the grades 11/12s up are asked to choose the best and fairest player from the opposing team. The most consistent player will be awarded the Best & Fairest trophy at the end of the season.

The results from Saturday's games were:

11/12s - Spice Girls d Bogangar and Super Stars d Girl Zone.

Intermediate grade Storm d Bogangar and Southern Cross Stars d Get Smart Go Getters

Best and fairest awards for the 11/12s and the Intermediate grades for this week went to Nikaya Wyatt, Celeste Mills, Georgia Percy, Holly Livermore, Alisha Gorton, C. Aston, Melanie O'Connor and Rianna Pateman.

The Opens are still looking for another new team to join the grade, and at this stage, points are not being accumulated.
