South Clare Demons netball 2017


The South Clare Netball Club have high hopes for the 2017 season, with the A1 side aiming to claim the ultimate prize come September. 

After playing in finals all but one year across the past 12 seasons, it’s obvious the Demons have the strength, skill and determination to get them to the top.

A1 coach Katie Liebelt said the bar had been set high, and supporters would not see it drop this year. 

“We are looking to continue that success and are striving for a top four position,” she said.

But will the 2017 premiership become theirs?

Ms Liebelt, who is also taking on the club’s senior netball director role this year, said numbers at trials had been positive across all grades. 

“We had a large number of girls out at trials,” she said.

“There’s a lot of youth around which is both exciting and healthy. 

“A large contingent of J1s will come into the senior ranks this year, plus there’s been a few new people who have moved into the town.”

While changes on the court are eminent this season, coaches across all grades will remain fairly stable.

Another notable change behind the scenes is the induction of Kelly Chapman as the junior netball director. 

The club will host a season launch at 11am on April 9.
