It was a busy weekend at Macquarie Park with the first round after the school holidays played on Saturday.
The rain didn't stop the competitive games from going ahead, with only our Set and Go non-competitive games and our annual march past cancelled.
Sunday saw us host our representative carnival, with rep teams from Macleay, Manning, Coffs Harbour, Nambucca and Woolgoolga coming up against our own rep teams, as state title preparations continue.
This carnival was the under-17 rep teams' second carnival as a team and proved very successful.
Team combinations are starting to form and team goals are being achieved.
With two Sydney carnivals coming up, coach Steph Fraser believes the team will be hitting their peak at the right time.
"I'm very proud of their efforts and know each of them will be rewarded personally," she said.
The 15's rep team competed in the 17 years age group against tough competition, holding their own with five wins from eight games.
Their tight losses came from our own 17's team and Coffs Harbour 17's and coach Natalie Jordan was understandably happy with the hit out.
"We played with high intensity and focus," she said.
Our 14s rep team competed in the 15s/17s division and adapted well to the stronger competition.
With three wins from seven games and two and three-goal losses in two games, the team is consolidating their combinations and game plan in preparation for division one at the state titles.
The 13's rep team also played extremely well.
The girls played seven games, winning five with one draw and one loss.
Coach Jen Glover is extremely happy with the players progress and is looking forward to junior state titles.
The 12's rep team were undefeated in the HVNA carnival.
Coach Jodie Burge said the girls were strong all over the court and played some beautiful netball.
"The hard work at training is definitely paying off," she said.
Only five weeks until senior state titles with the junior state titles top be held in July, the countdown is on.
