Temora Town Netball Rep Sides are four teams aged between 12 and 15 years. We are heading to the Netball NSW State Age Competition in Wollongong this year. This is the first year that we will be taking four teams as previously we have only taken two. We have been attending State Age for the past 4 years. Temora is a tiny regional town in the Riverina. Our club consists of approx. 50 players. We have a strong team of parents that do an enormous amount of fundraising to help get our girls to this amazing Competition. The girls all train extremely hard and are so excited to be heading to the big smoke to play a game they are all very passionate about. As you can imagine getting four teams to the city is very costly so we would be very grateful to receive one of your grants.
Value to the Community
Temora Town Netball provides girls in our regional area with the chance to play against the very best. It gives the girls an enormous amount of confidence and pride and even though we are beaten very convincingly some times our girls faces are always smiling. Unlike big city teams that play at State Age we have a policy that everyone is picked to play. Girls of all abilities have the chance to play in a wonderful team environment and be coached by some wonderful coaches. Our older girls are wonderful mentors to the young girls starting out and I think this instils in them a sense of compassion and team spirit which all the world could do with a little more of.
Why the funds are needed
If we were fortunate to receive a grant this would be used towards accommodation and transport to State Age in Wollongong. Our bus travel costs us approximately $3,500.00 and accommodation is another $3,000.00. There are other costs also charged at the venue such as tent hire fees and entry fees. Also because we are such a small club we have to pay for umpires as State Age requires one fully badged umpire per team as well as a spare and this costs us $3,000.00. We do a lot of fundraising ourselves, the girls do car/truck washes, we cater for morning teas for local businesses, chocolate drives, catered movie nights and much more. After fundraising in previous years it still costs each player about $1,000.00 to attend State Age and as you can imagine that is a lot of money especially when you are talking about mostly farming families who are doing it tough.
