Growth sparking sponsorship hunt
THE Capricorn Coast Netball Association is the second largest association in the Capricorn region, but operates with the smallest facilities.
With the continual rapid growth of membership, the CCNA needs to give its members a club house and the association is seeking local businesses support in making this happen as it is not sustainable to keep operating in the current conditions.
"At the moment we have over 700 members and we are operating out of a 3mx3m shed with no office, canteen, first aid rooms. We just set up our office under a pergola area, but we need some local support to make it a wish come true," Phebe Burnett, the Capricorn Coast Netball Association Registrar, said.
The main contribution to this growth was the new national netball program - San Remo's Net Set GO! for kids aged 5-6 years which is a 10-week introduction to netball, and the association's initiative of the midget program for ages 7-8 years to start playing the game in a modified environment.
"These programs have grown our junior membership base which in turn means the association has now added three more junior divisions to cater for the growth," Ms Burnett said.
"We are still looking for some individuals to top up teams in most of our divisions from the juniors through to the senior teams, so if you are interested please contact the association on 0438 106 068 to register."
