Below are the details for the WDNA Development Programs for both Umpires and Players. These programs definitely make a difference to the standard of play/umpire so we would encourage as many girls as possible to participate. Details will be available soon for Rangers Tune Up Clinic …

“It’s great to win, but it’s also great fun just to be in the thick of any truly well and hard fought contest, whatever the outcome.” – Jack Nicklaus
Our Rangers 16 and Rangers 2 were certainly in the thick of it yesterday in very hot conditions. Whilst having some fun over the season both of these teams improved their skills and game beyond expectations to almost topple more fancied teams. They were both very hard fought contests and the club could not be more proud of how they represented us yesterday! Thank you also to the very large crowd of supporters that cheered both teams.
Rangers 16 (11 years Div 4) in their first competitive season, with the majority of the team ‘first timers’, did not even resemble the team that first stepped on court together back in April. With some great coaching by John Dobrenov and some very supportive parents they had turned into A REAL TEAM! St Josephs had beaten us earlier in the season by almost 20 goals but yesterday our girls pushed them right to the line to fall short by one goal. As one parent said “It was one of the most exciting sports events we had seen in a long time”
Rangers 2 (A Res) started the season with the goal to play hard, enjoy their netball and show everyone what they were made of – they even christened themselves “the dream team”. Well girls, thanks to coach Roxanne Dyer (and staff) and plenty of dedication to training and games by all members of the team, oh and lots of laughs along the way, you achieved those goals! We had a 50/50 record against St Josephs but we certainly had them worried yesterday. We lead at 3/4 time but an extremely physical last quarter saw us pipped at the post. What a tremendous game – it was fabulous to watch a team of girls playing so hard and fast with determination and smiles on their faces right to the final hooter – some might say a “dream team”.
Rangers 21 (9 years div 1) not to be out done by teams in the finals had a fabulous game last weekend are undefeated for the season even after moving into Division 1. They played Centenary who until Saturday were undefeated for 2 season. It was a thrilling match and coach Ange Read was so proud of her determined girls who fought back from being 5-1 down in the first half to winning 7-5. They just didn’t give up!
