On Sunday 1st May, the Under 11 team, the Under 13 team 1 and the Under 15 Teams 1 & 3 competed at the Waverley District Netball Tournament. It was the first tournament of the year for most of the teams and every one tried extremely hard especially in the very wet conditions. In the end both the Under 13 Team 1 and the Under 15 Team 1 were undefeated during the round robin games, with the Under 13’s winning the Reserve section and the Under 15’s were runners up in the Open Section. Also on Sunday 22nd May, the Under 11 team, the Under 13 team 2 and the Under 15 Team 2 competed at the Dandenong Netball Tournament. Below are some of the Coaches Reports from the tournaments.
Under 15 - Team 1 - Coaches Report
The Under 15 Team 1 had a great day out playing some really tough competition with only 1 or 2 goals between each game. Despite being undefeated during the round robin games, they were unable to clinch victory, going down by 2 goals in the Open section Grand Finals. However, it was a good opportunity for the girls to see how they do against teams in the higher sections.
Under 15 - Team 3 - Coaches Report
The Under 15/3 team had a tough day playing teams that were usually a couple of sections higher than them on the Thursday Night competition. However, despite losing a player early on through injury, the team finished strongly by going down to the top team by only 2 goals. It was a good effort for their first tournament of the year.
Under 13 – Team 1- Coaches Report
Congratulations to the Under 13 Team 1 who took victory in their first tournament of the year. The girls were very excited to be at their first tournament, despite the chilly weather, and played extremely well. They did not lose a game for the entire day. What an excellent job girls.
Under 13 – Team 2- Coaches Report
What a great effort from the Under 13/2 squad on Sunday at the Dandenong & Districts tournament. It was their second tournament, but the first for some players this year. While they came up against some tough teams throughout the 5 rounds (Chelsea, Nepean, Whitehorse who were mostly top age), all players gave it their all and stayed focused on their game plan regardless. They had 2 wins against Kardinia 5/0 and Upper Yarra 7/0 which gave the team a lift to get them through the day. The experience they gained from the day will hold them in good stead for their next tournament. Well done to the team and thanks to the support of the parents who I'm sure enjoyed the day. The weather was also on our side and made it a lot easier for all. Also, a BIG thank you to Jemima who high tailed it to the tournament to fill in for the day.
