Netball Reports Winter 2014

 Paparoa A - Our season did not get off to a good start. The first seven weeks were rained off!! But in this time we had the opportunity for a couple of practice games against Elmwood, which was great. When we finally got to play on Fridays we had a great first game with a good win but struggled for the next few weeks to gel as a team. After a team talk we pulled it together and have been playing really well. We played in zones and are off to centrals to compete in the B division. A big thank you to Carrie George, Anna Galvan and Miss Laird for coaching us. Isabella Galvan




 Paparoa B - The season of the B netball has been great. Even though we haven’t had many games because of the weather we are still very thankful for the games we have played. We have won every game and are hoping we can carry it on for the rest of the session. At zones we had an amazing time and didn’t lose a game in our division. Our team is so happy to have a great coach like Carrie George and our lovely co coach Carolyne Grant. So far our season has been amazing and GO B NETBALL!!


B Team


 Paparoa C - After the poor start to the season with the weather, we are in the groove and are having a great time! We went to zones last week and had some wins and some losses but had a fun time. We would like to say thanks to our coaches Mrs Hodder and Miss Andrews on a Monday morning along with the D team and Mrs Whittaker and Mrs Rance on Fridays. Abby Drayton




 Paparoa D - has been a great success, even though we had a quite a rough start. Our team has very good sportsmanship and we congratulate the opposition kindly even when we lose. We have been getting better and better and now we are on a winning streak with our last game 12:9 to us! Some of us were even chosen to go to the zone tournament with the C team. We train at 8.00am Monday mornings and our coaches are Mrs Hodder and Miss Andrews, then on a Friday Mrs Barraclough. They have been amazing. I think our team has done really well and we look forward to the rest of the season! Eva Hitchon.

Tigers - We are a team that has mostly never played netball before so it was really cool to have this opportunity. At first we didn’t have a coach but Miss Sullivan, who was a student teacher here in term 2, took us for practice for the first 5 weeks of term 2, then Mrs Cargin took over and became our coach. We have had a lot of fun and really enjoyed learning about how to play netball. We have had a couple of wins and a few losses. We try to show good sportmanship win or lose and we always try to work as a team.  Charley, Tanisha, Mishael, Abbey.
