Carnival success for peninsula teams

Posted: 5pm 07 Apr 2021

The rep teams at Redcliffe Leagues Netball Association (RLNA) have delivered again.

RLNA had three runners-up and one winner at the Brisbane Netball Association Representative Carnival, last month.

The Under 15 Red team won its section, while the Under 12, Under 13 and Under 14 Red sides took second places.

Winning ways

It adds to the RLNA’s representative program which has grown from four teams eight years ago, to 11 today.

RLNA also placed seventh at last year’s Nissan State Age Championships, held over four days against 215 clubs from across Queensland.

“We are classed as a small association with the number of players for rep sides,” said Deb Killalea, who co-ordinates the program at RLNA with Jody Jones.

“But our players and coaches do so well.”

Growth spurt

The rep program focusses on being “supportive, respectful, committed and inclusive” with the same opportunities for all to progress.

That approach has seen a 20 per cent growth in numbers on last year at KR Benson Park, off Maine Rd, Clontarf.

There was also huge praise from parents for the RLNA’s work during the COVID lockdown last year with zoom meetings keeping selected players closely connected.
