We would like to remind all members of our association - be they players, coaches, managers or spectators – that negative comments and inappropriate language both on and off the court will not be tolerated under any circumstances. As members of our local sporting community, we pride ourselves on fostering a positive environment where our players, volunteers and supporters can feel safe and respected. We thank you for your continued cooperation.

Our association would like to wish our State League team good luck for their second round this weekend in Casino. The first game will commence at 10:00am against Casino, followed by a second game playing Lower Clarence and a final round against Ballina. The final will be played between the overall winners of these games in the same afternoon. Hopefully fitness and skill will get this team over the line to take out The Far North Coast region for the third year in a row. Feel free to come support our team at the Casino Sports Complex and witness some great games of netball!
