Important Dates -
Recently, we have been displaying sandwich boards at some of our pitches informing all comers as to the true purpose of the sport we love.
As a club with all ages from U6 to senior men and women, 30 of our 41 teams are non-competitive "Miniroos" (U6-U10) and our half of our players are aged 8 or less.
Therefore it's critical we keep things in context. As the sign says:
These are kids
This is a game
The coaches are volunteers
The referees are human
This is not the World Cup
A picture of this sign was recently posted on Facebook by our co-tenant club - the Bendigo Junior Flames Northern Netball Club. And within 5 days, our sandwich board has circled the globe and been "Liked" 1200+ times and "Shared" 350+ times.
We encourage all club members, parents, families, players to supporters to uphold the true meaning of the sport that we love.
