We're Back!!

Hello to all of our wonderful Committee, Members, Sponsors and Supporters!

I hope you are enjoying a great start to 2018 and are looking forward to another great year of Woopi Netball as much as I am.
Behind the scenes your Committee has been working hard, putting plans in place which I am sure will see Woopi Netball continue to prosper.

It all starts with our U13's and U14's Rep Squads recommencing training on Tuesday 30th January at 4.45pm, followed by the Over 35's at 6.30pm. The U17 Rep Squad training recommencement will be confirmed as soon as possible.

Here are some other important dates to remember-
After a hiatus last year our Senior Ladies Competition (for players turning 16 in 2018 and above) is back. Registrations will take place at our courts on Tuesdays 20th and 27th February between 5.00pm and 7.00pm with the comp to start on Tuesday 6th March. Time to start getting your teams together ladies! Individual players are also warmly welcomed and we will find you a team.

Registrations for our Saturday Netball for players aged between 5 and 17 will take place upstairs at the Seaview Tavern on Saturdays 24th February and 3rd March from 11.00am-12.30pm. Grading will commence on Saturday 10th March. Competition age groups will be determined following registrations. Also, it would be great if you could support our highly valued sponsor, the Seaview, by staying for lunch after registering. Kids meals are only $5 during February!

Woopi Netball have registered as a provider for the Active Kids Rebate program which is a wonderful initiative and will be a great help for our families. Parents and carers of school-aged children enrolled in an approved sport or fitness activity can receive a $100 voucher to cover registration and participation costs for that calendar year.
Further details will be available once the accreditation process is confirmed but you can read more with the following links-

If you have any questions relating to our Competitions please contact our Registrar, Colette Harris on 0439801335 or woopinetball@gmail.com

I am also very excited that at this stage we will field 4 teams at the various State Championships this year, being U13's, U14's, U17's and Over 35's. Our squads are shaping up very nicely and I'm sure that all the selected players will again wear the "Woopi Green" with great pride.

Nominations remain open for our 2018 Opens Rep Team.
We also currently have a vacancy for the role of U17's Manager.

It is also our intention to run Development Squads in the U11, U12 and U14 age groups. Expressions of interest for Coaches of these squads are open.
If you are interested in any of the abovementioned roles I encourage you to complete and lodge a nomination form which can be downloaded from our website www.woopinetball.com

For further information please contact our Rep Convenor, Kelvin Harris on 0408286696 or email woopinetball@gmail.com

We will also be running our hugely popular Primary Schools Comp and Mixed Twilight Comp later in the year so it will be nonstop action in 2018.
I look forward to seeing everyone over the coming weeks as we get right back into the swing of things .... Go Woopi!!

Yours in Netball
