End of Junior Spring League 2016

June 28th, 2016

Last Saturday, June 25th , marked the culmination of eight weeks of growth, team bonding, and skill development that the 108 participants in the Junior Spring League garnered throughout this netball season.

Players and parents alike came out to show their competitive side from 12:30-6:30 pm at Southland Leisure Centre, as six Junior A teams and six Junior B teams battled for the tournament title after all their hard work in the weeks prior. The games were exciting and fast paced. We look forward to seeing all these players back in the Fall after such an exhilarating season.

Not only must we congratulate the players on their tremendous growth over the season, but also that of the coaches and umpires involved for rising to the challenge and imparting your wisdom on our netball youth. We couldn’t do it without you!

Special thanks to Doug Matchett and Emma Wilton for their tireless commitment to aiding the coaches and umpires in their development this season. We must also mention those parents that continually volunteered to score keep and take on additional duties every Sunday. Your help does not go unnoticed.

The standings for the league and tournament are as follows:
