Between 2018 and 2019, our club grew from 140 players to 215 players, making it one of the largest clubs in the Adelaide Metropolitan Netball Division. This was in part caused by our decision to field junior teams for the first time in the winter 2019 season.
This year, we welcomed an astounding seven junior teams over five age groups.
Our club’s continued growth has led to increase operational costs (cost of umpires, equipment, coaching and court hire), along with greater responsibility for our volunteers, who dedicate countless hours to not only operate the club, but also set and maintain complex policies and practices.
A grant of $2000 would be used to purchase new equipment for our junior teams, as well as invest in online professional development for our Committee, Umpires and Coaches.
