NETBALL on the Coffs Coast will reach a new level this Saturday when Coffs Harbour's Premier League team take on neighbours Nambucca Heads in the first round of the Inaugural Premier League while Kempsey will battle it out against Port Macquarie.
The Coffs Harbour team is made up of experienced senior players and emerging young talent who will provide a strong combination which will be hard to beat.
Coffs Harbour's best under 17s will provide the pre-match entertainment when they take on Nambucca's under 17s in a curtain-raiser starting at 2.30pm.
The big show will then get underway at 3.30pm at the Coffs Harbour courts on Murray Drive and it is hoped that Coffs Harbour will turn out in force to cheer their team to victory.
In the case of wet weather, an alternate venue of Sportz Central has been organised.
Coffs Harbour have already proven they're serious about flying the local flag in this top-flight competition off the court by securing valuable sponsorship from Muffin Break and the Coffs Hotel. Now it's time to show how good the team is on the court.
Spectators will not be disappointed at the level of skill and intensity these games will be played at so it's time to get out and support the town's latest top-level team.
AT the other end of the spectrum Coffs Harbour Netball Association will be using this Saturday to launch their new junior development program with a 'come and try' and registration day for the Net Set Go Program.
This program is aimed at six and seven year olds and endeavours to equip them with netball skills in a fun environment.
Run over 10 weeks for just $50, participants receive a backpack, ball and other giveaways while taking part in skill sessions and modified games.
Registration will be at 2.00pm at the courts and two of CHNA's talented under 21s will run a short session with all new participants.
