We are a considerably large club, formed in 1974, just prior to Cyclone Tracy. Our numbers have increased significantly over the past 12 years, going from a Club with 4 senior teams and 2 junior teams to now having 7 senior teams and 13 junior teams. In addition, we have 3 All Abilities teams.
We would use the grant to enable us to secure the services of the resident Netball NT Head Coach/Development Officer.
Penny Shearer is an outstanding netballer who is keen to share her extensive knowledge. Our Club has a high rate of success with junior representation in both Netball NT Teams and Darwin Region Teams. This includes our All Abilities team who participate in the Marie Little Cup Australian Champs. We feel that Penny would provide exceptional coaching camps that would allow our members to improve in all areas of the game. She also works closely with developing Coaches so provide valuable resource information and training to our coaching group, which in turn can be shared with players.
The costs associated with securing Penny’s services would account for the $2000 grant.
