Many of you will recognize Doug as he and his family have been a huge part of Netball Alberta for the last two years. They have taken every opportunity to support our organization and we are extremely happy that Doug has accepted the volunteer position of Junior A Coordinator this year!
Doug first discovered - and fell in love with netball - when he and his family were living in Australia. All three of his girls got involved in the sport, and Doug immediately stepped in to help the club in any way he could, especially as the 'grill king' for their concession fundraisers.
When the Matchetts returned to Calgary, they were thrilled to join Netball Alberta, with all three girls, as well as his son, playing in the league.
Doug has taken on coaching, umpiring, and team manager roles for Netball Alberta. His enthusiasm for netball, and his commitment to learning everything about this sport and helping out however he can will serve Doug well in this new position. We are very lucky to have him onboard.
