The Tibro’s Netball Club had the chance to train with semi-professional netball team the USC Thunder last week, thanks to a local radio competition.
President of the Tibro’s Anna Guthrie said she and the club were extremely grateful to Hot 91.1FM and USC Thunder for winning the session via the station’s win website page.
“Training sessions with Thunder girls and the lightning is always a fantastic opportunity for our young players particularly, to see where they can get to, something to aspire to,” she said.
“It’s fabulous to have Thunder girls down here representing their club and showing the girls a bit of netball this afternoon.”
As for Netball in general, Anna said she is excited to continue to watch the growth of netball in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.
“Netball as a whole has grown in its capacity since we have our own national team, so the lightning have done wonders in promoting the sport,” she said.
“With the way housing is booming around here, we’re growing as a club, we’re evolving every year, taking on new kids from all ages, and we also have our social club as well.”
