Another Geelong Junior Netball Season has come to end. 2016 Geelong Junior Netball once again expanded with more teams and a new venue. In 2016 AFL Barwon had 58 teams competing in the 11 & under competition on a Tuesday night across two venues Kardinia Park and Ocean Grove.
The 11 & under season concluded with a fun filled 11 & Under Carnival at Kardinia Park where all 58 teams competed across the day. The weather was fantastic, the players got to meet Tegan Phillips from the Melbourne Vixens and received their participation medal from the emerging players from Geelong Netball Club.
The Friday night competition grew once again in 2016 adding in a third 15 & under division. With the new division we had 8 division completing on a Friday night at Kardinia Park. The season concluded on the 26th of September with our GJN Grand Finals. It was a fantastic sight to see eight grand finals all being played at the once time. As the national anthem was played looking down the courts seeing all players lined up and the crowd silent. We had some fantastic results in our Grand finals but the game of the night was our All Abilities grand final that went down to the wire. It was a fantastic display of netball played in the highest of spirits. Bell Post Hill manage a nail biting 2 goal win over St Albans.
