Tibros springing into Spring season

By Kirra Livingstone

THE Hinterland’s Tibros netball juniors now have the opportunity to keep their skills sharpened in the off season thanks to the rejuvenation of the Sunshine Coast’s Twilight Season.

The spring competition has been on ice due to a lack of numbers, but growing interest in the sport has given Caloundra District Netball Association the confidence to host it this year with the aim of keeping players engaged, fresh and focused for the 2023 season.

Tibros junior registrar Anna Guthrie said: “One of the reasons why the association brought it back was to ensure the development of players continues particularly in that younger age group.”

“It’s also a good way for younger kids that haven’t played netball before, it’s a good introduction through an eight-week program if they’ve never played to join a team and have some fun.”

Anna expects the club to have a total of three teams across five age divisions.

Registrations are now closed with the season starting on October 13.

“Something else is needed for our kids during the off season, they need to keep playing and programs like this are good for their development,” Anna said.
