Burra Booborowie Hallett football and netball clubs involved in programs

BBH netball saw 13 girls aged between 5-7, participated in this year’s Suncorp NetSetGO, Netball Australia’s entry level netball program.

It has been developed to provide boys and girls aged between 5 and 10, with an introduction to the sport, regardless of ability.

The program incorporates skill activities, games and modified matches in a fun and safe environment.

Caitlin Stockman coordinated the program for the second year, ably assisted by Leonie Taylor and Maddi Millward.

Upon registering, each participant received a pack, comprising of an activity book, information, a t-shirt and a netball.

The participants had a fantastic time, learning the basic fundamentals of the game, and most importantly, the importance of working as a team.

Caitlin said she thoroughly enjoyed watching the girls confidence grow, and gain new skills and knowledge in readiness for their progression into mainstream netball.

Meanwhile, on the football side, 26 eager young players registered for this year’s NAB AFL Auskick program, coordinated by Tim Dalla. 

Starting from the grass roots, Auskick is about teaching all kids the basics of Australian Football. The program is tailored to be inclusive and to suit all individual needs.

The program is designed to let kids learn through play, building fundamental motor skills and learning the importance of team work.

The players wrapped up the program with a presentation of medallions by the BBH B Grade team, followed by a sausage sizzle.

BBH Football Club wishes to thank Tim for coordinating the program, and to all of the parents and club members who assisted each week.
