SCARBOROUGH Netball Club’s top Year 7/8 team is aiming to lift the intensity in its first year in the Perth Netball Association’s junior division one competition.

After seven rounds, the team is seventh on the ladder with three wins and four losses.

Coach Narelle Goodfield said the team’s promotion to division one was a great achievement and showed the club’s depth of players.

“We are very proud of the results of the girls so far this season,” she said.

“The competition has been tough, however it’s great to see a few wins on the board.

“Importantly, the girls take on the challenge with terrific attitude and determination.”

Goodfield said the goal was for the players to improve their skills at a higher level, be competitive and enjoy the team sport.

“We are working on a faster pace of attacking and defending and controlling the ball all the way down the court,” she said.

“We are a very social club, so spending time with each other off the court is a big part of our team.”

Goodfield said Scarborough Netball Club’s strong club culture ensured that the other five Year 7/8 teams could aspire to play in division one in the future.
