Bringing several communities together for a common cause is not an easy thing to achieve, but the hardworking people at BSR Netball Club continue to do it every year.
The Brinkworth-Spalding-Redhill Tigers are made up of local and Adelaide based players who meet halfway to train a Mallala Netball Club every three weeks, as well as their weekly training sessions.
A1 coach and head coach at BSR, Deb Heinjus, said the club is lucky to have experienced and talented coaches who work tirelessly to make this system work.
“We have worked hard to make it possible for our city-based players be an active part of the club through organising centralised training sessions and training in Adelaide,” she said.
The club has been improving the standard of their coaching this year, with many of the coaches seeking accreditation.
Amy Trengove has been awarded her intermediate coaching accreditation and Toni Ashby is helping to mentor coaches.

This year the club is excited to welcome back a few ex-club members and some players from other teams.
Georgina Moore has returned to the club, Charlotte Kaeding and Taryn Kelly have come from the Crystal Brook A grade and Montanna Doudle has also joined the squad.
Unfortunately, the club has also lost a few players this season including Alicia Thomas who has left to have a baby, Tessa Weckert who has gone to Blyth/Snowtown and Ellen Kessling and Georgia Hunter who are unable to play due to work and study commitments.
Deb said the club is feeling positive about the year ahead after a successful season across all grades last year.
“Three out of four teams took out the premiership last year so we’re hoping to back that up this year,” Deb said, “I think we can build some competitive teams across the board.”
