What a day for our Junior teams on Saturday with two teams heading into the last round unbeaten. We have been following our top Junior side all season but our magnificent U8s’ well coached by Dave “Postie” Douglas were sitting on a perfect record and kept it that way in brilliant conditions at Polo and then following that a comprehensive win for our U13s’ against a North’s’ side that had probably tested our U13s’ more than any other team in there earlier clash at Elsdon Park in terrible conditions. Most of these U13 players are off to college next year with a good many going to Rongotai – under Dave Meaclem, Justin Grey and the rest of the Rugby team at RC these players will enjoy a new environment thanks to the partnership with our friends at Poneke – watch this space!
It has been a great season for our Junior Section – checkout some pics from Saturday on our facebook page !
Our Netball girls didn’t let us down either with two big Ws’ in their finals – well done girls!
As the footie season winds down it is time to think about summer sport and our great friends at Miramar Softball have given us some info to pass on. Most Junior games are played at The Polo, Juniors start at around 3 years and they quite often play in our Gym and softball is great for teaching kids ball skills and social development – get you kids to give it a go!
