Tibros end year on a high

By Kirra Livingstone

THE Tibros Netball club ended their year with a bang, with multiple junior and senior players being picked for the 2023 State representative teams.

Club President Jen Lowry said she and the club were proud of the effort the girls put in who made it into representative teams, even if some weren’t confident going into their try outs.

“There was one girl that didn’t want to go to the representative try outs because she didn’t think she could make it…” she said.

“I told her that there’s only one way to find out and encouraged her to try out and when she found out she made it, she was ecstatic.

“We are really proud of everyone, they all had a great year and with a tough year in 2021 missing all the games that we did, they are just so happy to be back.”

The hinterland club also recently took part in the Caloundra Netball Association’s Spring Twilight season for girls aged 10-14, wanting to extend their netball season and strengthen their skills.

Lowry said the 30 Tibros players who registered to participate loved the opportunity to continue to play throughout Spring, and highlighted the benefits of the program.

“They loved it, and they were so sad when it was over, and the last day of the season was washed out so there were a lot of sad faces, but we’ll be ready to go for next year,” she said.

“It’s great for their growth and development and keep them enthused in the game more than anything, as well as active and keep them on the courts for longer.”
