Junior netball this years has increased to six teams competing in the Wangaratta Netball Assoc Saturday morning Junior competition and the girls are just loving it!  Their skills are constantly improving while they are having the best fun.  The YFNC would like to thank Opteon Property Group, Byrne Removalists & Storage and Wheaton Chiropractic Clinic for sponsoring new dresses for the three senior teams.  The girls look every bit the Pigeons and part of the YFNC.

National Netball Day was recently celebrated across Australia on 4 June and our girls dressed up for normal play to have a bit of fun and acknowledge the day.   Here a few pics of the girls playing,  dressed up for National Netball Day, team photos and the girls in their new sponsored dresses.  Thanks to our dedicated Mums who not only get their girls to netball but take on coaching and team manager roles.  Thank you.
