GRAND FINAL DAY

Congratulations to our three premierships teams. Wow what a great day.

Shining Stars and Fusion took the courts at the same 10.45am time slot and it proved to be a winning time slot for Nova. But very different games.Pulsars and Gold Stars took the court at 12.00pm and it proved  to be a heart breaking time slot for Nova and our Southern Stars wrapped up a successful day winning their 21G3 GF.

Firstly, in 12G1 Shining Stars completed back to back premierships, 11G2 last year and after being elevated to12G1 raised the trophy again. What a great effort. The girls came from behind to again beat the favourites to prove that the major semi win was not a fluke. The girls produced a gutsy win and won a nail biting contest on the siren 25-24.Well done coach Louise and all her players.

Fusion also won back to back premierships 11G1 last year and 13G1 this season playing against the older girls they remarkably went through undefeated and dominated the GF 48-23. These girls show such a professional approach and are incredibly well drilled at a young age. They are Fantastic result for super coach Streatfield and her team. Wher to next year for this talented group?

Gold Stars unfortunately could not complete the fairy tale of coming last in2016 to being premiers in 2017. They fell agonisingly short in extra time ina thrilling game. They actually thought they had it won at full time but a scoresheet controversy showed it as a draw. The girlsjust couldnt rally again in extra time and eventuallywent down 25-32. But what a great season from Kylie and her team.

Pulsars in my eyes were big winners this season. The girls showed what team sport was all about and came together as a team and created strong friendships and each girl wanted to win for each other,no surprise that this was also supercoach Kylie Streatfields team as well, she has nurtured these girls into such a good unit.Unfortunately they fell at the final hurdle to go down 20-27.But they should be very very proud.

Southern Stars ensured that the day ended on a positive for Nova with a comprehensive victory to also go through undefeated which is a magnificent effort.They learnt form their one point major semi win to come out a blow the opposition away with a 16-3 first qtr  lead. They went on to win comfortably by 20+ pts. Great result for Nick and this great bunch of girls.

Another season comes to and end, can not believe it. Bring on 2018

FINALS DAY

The good news is that we have 5 teams in the Grand Final next week with two fantastic come from behind wins for the Gold Stars and the Pulsars to join Shining Stars, Fusion and Southern Stars . But unfortunately we say good bye to 6 more teams who all had great seasons and should be very proud of their achievements.

  • Juggernauts hit a red hot opponent and lost 7-49
  • Electrons were gallant in defeat but were beaten 24-35
  • Gold Stars won a very tight battle and came from 3 down going into the last qtr to overpower a stong opposition 27-25
  • Asteroids started strongly but gave up the lead and despite hitting back in the last qtr went down 20-25

THANK YOU ALL COACHES

I would like to thank all the fantastic Nova coaches as the season draws to a close. Your efforts, time and energy in developing, nurturing and mentoring our children is greatly appreciated and probably not always recognised. So I would like to personally recognise you all and personally thank you as Club President.

  • Amanda Bennis- Little Stars. Taking on the coaching of a 7yrs team can be possibly the hardest coaching job of all. But Amanda has done a great job and the girls have come up with some great results
  • Georgia Cooper- Lunas. Georgia has had a very successful year as coach and it isnot always easy to coach a team with a sibling in it but Georgia has done a fine job
  • Louise Standing- Jedi’s. Louise has also had a very successful team and has developed her team into a very good one. Her enthusiasm and genuine joy in her teams success is great to see.
  • Deb Bond-Skyrockets. A reluctant coach as the beginning of the season  Deb has done a wonderful job in coaching a very competitive side. And hopefully her reluctance has gone and she will line up again next season.
  • Leah Winter and Asssistant Bridget Hobden- Dragonflies.What a fantastic effort by these two. After flying at the start of the season the team was put up a grade and suffered some big losses, but they rallied them and had them firing in the top grade to the extent they finished in the top 4. Leah’s pasion for the game is infectious.
  • Renee Haynes- Twisters, Satellites, Power, Quantum. Wow!! Renee has been an outstanding club person for many years and coaching one team is demanding but 4!! Renee did not have the success on the court  this season as she normally does but she was certainly successful in gaining th admiration of every girl she coached. Described by one of her fellow players as inspirational, pretty fair call I reckon.
  • Jaymie Hayman-Protons. Tough gig for Jaymie this season. Her team was graded incorrectly and suffered soe tough losses but their improvement was obvious. One of the hardest and thankless jobs when your team is not winning but Jaymie kept positive and neary pulled off alast game victory.
  • Kylie Streatfield- Shooting Stars, Fusion, Pulsars What can I say!!I have almost run out of superlatives to describe Kylie. She is on target to have three teams in a GF having one is unbelievable but potentially three!! All girls coached by Kylie continue to improve and learn and her nurturing and ability to handle difficult situations is a massive asset to the club. She has managed to take our Fusion side to the GF undefeated even more remarkable considering they are playing up a year. But for me the story of the year has been the success of the Pulsars. The way she has moulded this group of girls into such a cohesive and competitive team has been phenomenal. Kylie also coached the first Nova team in the Charlestown comp.
  • Julie Lysaught- Fireflies.Julie has done a brilliant job with the Fireflies this season getting the team into the top 4 and improving their skill levels significantly
  • Zoe Sydenham- Bright Sparks & Neons. It is often very hard to coach teams without your own child in them but Zoe has done a magnificent job with wo of these teams. The Bright Sparks winning a come from behind victory in the SFand Neons growing from strength to strength and if the season was starting tomorrow Iwould back them to be top 4. Described by the Neons Manager as ” the best coach in any sporthe has been involve in”.
  • Christine Clifford- All Stars & Gravity. Another long term excellent club member who does a lot more than coach. Looking after the court allocation is a tough job and one that I am glad I dont have to do. Christines teams did not have their best season but as always they never gave in. Christines efforts year in and out are greatly appreciated.
  • Tony Guihot- Starburst. I hope everyone saw manager Claire’s last game report. Tony has managed to keep all the girls positive and fostered strong team ethics in a tough season. This was Tony’s first season as coach and I hope he lines up again next year and gets the success he deserves.
  • Elissa Roberts- Juggernauts Elissa has done a fantastic job with the Juggernauts. New to the club this year Elissa has already proven to be a valuable club member.
  • Louise Cooper- Shining Stars & Galaxies. Louise has done a tremendous job in getting her Shining Stars through to the GF especially since they went up to G1 this year. and are on target for back to back premierships.Her Galaxies also tried hard all year and kept smiling.
  • Mel Whitaker- Auroras. Mel had a tough season last season but it didnt dampen her enthusiasm and she managed to coach her team to the semi finals this season.Mel has done a grand job.
  • Linda Maume- Fireworks. Linda is also a first year Nova coach and has taken her charges to a top 4 finish,not a bad start.
  • Alison Lochrin- Electrons. Alison has been very impressive in getting the Electrons into a final having to overcome injuries.She has managed to get all players working together and wanting to win for each other.
  • Kristel Lee/Stephanie Jones- Rockets & Goal Diggers.What an asset to caoching these two have been. Talk about conflicting seasons, their Rockets had a very challenging season but the girls really appreciated their coaching efforts. The Goals Diggers on the other hand are firing at the right end of the season and are two wins away from a premiership.
  • Kylie Matthews- Gold Stars. Kylie is another coach that had a disppointing season last year but has bounced back with a top 4 position. Kylie’s preparation and enthusiasm is very much appreciated by her team.
  • Bronwyn Geerarts- Asteroids.Bronwyn has also taken on coaching for the first time with Nova and he love of the game is evident.She has worked very hard to get the success she has this season and her and her team deserve a GF appearance.
  • Amy Delore- Supernovas.Amy has enjoyed another successful season taking her team to the semis. Amy’s encouraging approach has ensured that all her girls have had another enjoyable season.
  • Ally Dalmazzone- Rockstars.How good has Ally been with this team.they have gone up a grade every year winning G4, R/U G3, winner G2 and this season being very competitive in G1. Great bunch of girls an the way they play and the way they conduct themselves is in part a testament to Ally.
  • Char Love- Radiance.Another long term coach whose efforts are genuinely appreciated. Char has been through a challenging couple of years but keeps this gorgeous group of girls smiling and happy. Such a positve person. Everyone loves Char.
  • Izzy Neskovki- Eclipse. New to the club this season, Izzy took on the responsibilities of looking after her team mates and friends. Not an easy task but one she handled beautifully.
  • Tracey Gardiner- Solars. Tracey took on the role of coaching this talented young team and they are all bettre for the experience. Another excellent addition to Nova this season and her analysis of the game and her passion for the game is unbelievable.
  • Nick Mursa- Southern Stars. Nick has also been coaching at Nova for a number of years and his genuine love of the game and his his dedication to all aspects of the game has reaped rewards this season as his team advanced to the GF undefeated.
  • Des Cowan/Katie Robinson- Thunder. How lucky are we to have coaches of this calibre in the club.Last season in the Greater competition  the team exceeded all expectations but this year they had to adjust to life without Katie the player, which proved to be difficult.However after a slowish start the girls finished the season strongly and credit for this must go to two of the best in the business. Thanks des and Katie for being part of Nova.Bring on 2018.
  • Felicity Thompson- Nova 2.Felicity took on the coaching of one of Nova’s foundation teams as they were determined to do well in A1.Despite losing a couple of key players Felicity achieved this goal as the team made the top 4. Felicity is another welcome addition to the Nova club.
  • Jula Zilic- Storm.Jula is another top level coach that we are lucky to have at Nova her technical knowledge is probably the best in Newcastle. Her ability to bring out the best in her teams was evident again this year with Storm. Despite comments that they were too young and not up to A2, Jula coached this talented team to a top 4 position in another great performance.
  • Cheryl Hernando- Magic. The list of great coaches keeps growing.Cheryl was curtailed in her coaching this season due to hip operations but still managed to coach the mighty Magic. I think they would have had to cut both legs off for her not to coach them!! I am looking forward to Cheryl taking on more teams again next season so that more girls can take advantage of her knowledge and positive approach.
  • Hayley Taylor- Nomads. Hayley has again taken on the role of coaching/managing the Nomads. These girls narrowly missed the semi’s after going up a couple of grades. thanks for your efforts Hayley.
  • Ray Twigger- Black Ops. Ray has been looking after the Black Ops for a few seasons  now and her love of netball has rubbed off on her players as they again made the semi’s.

Thank you again to every coach,I would love to have given all of you a Mary Ellen award to recognise your efforts but unfortunately this is not possible. However this doesn’t mean that your coaching is any less appreciated.

For all those who have had the benefit of these coaches please feel free to comment to show them our gratitude.

ROUND 16 & SEMI FINALS

We started a very windy day with 12 teams still in the premiership race and finished the day with 11 teams still in contention which is an excellent achievement. Unfortunately the Black Ops had to forfeit their game which was a disappointing end to their very good season.

Some absolute nail biters and some absolute thrashings plus a huge upset highlighted a successful day. A few losses as well but due to their strong season these teams get to live another week.

Semi Final results:

  • Shooting Stars were very solid in their 11-7 victory and will approach the final with a lot of confidence.
  • Bright Sparks overcame a slow start down 4-12 at Qtr time to come storming home to win 29-26
  • Juggernauts fought out a close contest to win 21-17
  • Shining Stars scored a big upset over the previously undefeated top side in a low scoring 16-11 win to advance staright through to the GF
  • Fusion could not have been more impressive in an absolute thrashing 54-9 and provided coach Kylie Streatfield with the first of what could be three teams in GF’s
  • Gold Stars tried hard all day but went down 27-40
  • Asteroids lost 22-36 but will be looking to bounce back in the final
  • Southern Stars continued their undefeated run (just) in an absolute nail biter winning 30-29 to lock in a GF appearance
  • Goal Diggers sent a warning to the other teams in the competition with a massive 54-11 win
  • Balck Ops unfortunately had to forfeit.

Today also saw the last game for our little Nova girls,(where has the season gone?) I hope everyone enjoyed it and are looking forward to next year.

  • Little Stars TBC
  • Lunas won 8-2 to finish a very positive season on a high
  • Jedi’s TBC
  • Skyrockets went down 5-11 but have had a reaal good season
  • Dragonflies finished in great style winning 12-6 and finishing in the top 4. A particularly impressive result considering they were “upgraded”mid season.

Next week we will have 8 teams contesting the final and hopefully they can all join our three teams already in the “big dance”.

Go Nova

PRESENTATION DAY

On Sunday we had Nova Netball Clubs 7th presentation.

It’was great to see so many people there again and would like to thank everyone who attended.

What a magnificent season for Nova. We had 38 teams. We had 18 teams in the semis. 9 in the Grand Final and we won an amazing 7 Premierships!! .Which is the best result the club has ever had.

We are also back in the Greater Open Competition and our Thunder girls certainly over achieved finishing 3rd in their first year.

We also have 19 girls currently in rep squads in Newcastle and 9 girls in Charlestown

When you look into the season in more detail. There was only one club who won more premierships and they only won 8 but they did have 72 teams. We won the most junior premierships of any club with 4 and we won the most Junior Grade 1 premierships with 2.

We should all be very proud of this achievement but we should be more proud of the reputation the club has established not only through our achievements but through our attitudes and the way we conduct ourselves.

Congratulations to all teams who played this year. Special mention to Goal Diggers and Bright Sparks who had a fantastic season to make the grand final but unfortunately found one team better on the day.

But HUGE congratulations and to the following PREMIERSHIP TEAMS:

  • Nova Fusion
  • Nova Shining Stars
  • Nova Rock Stars
  • Nova Storm
  • Nova Radiance
  • Nova 2
  • Nova Nomads.

I would like to thank all the players who played for Nova this year.  I hope all the new and existing players enjoyed their season and had a lot of fun, because that really is what it is about!!

Also I would like to thank the parents and carers who have supported their kids, the Managers who put in a lot of work behind the scenes work to make sure the season travels smoothly.

But especially I would like to thanks the coaches who take on a big burden to not only improve the skills and performance of our children but make sure it is an enjoyable experience. And we are lucky to have the best coaches in the competition.

Also thanks to Christine Clifford for AGAIN organising the court hire at the start of the season not sure if everyone appreciates just how much work this is, Jen Pickard for taking on the unwanted task of canteen rostering AGAIN and doing a sterling job, and thanks to all the people who helped on canteen duty especially Heidi Geise who I don’t think missed one, James and Renee Haynes for again getting all the equipment and kitbags together for the start of the season. Renee for helping with registration .Kylie Streatfield for organising team Jackets. Without the contribution by people like this the club would not be able to operate the way it does.

Also thanks to our sponsors, especially our new sponsor George Rafty, from First National Real Estate. George sponsored our Nova Thunder girls in the Greater Open competition and was a very valuable addition to the Nova family. Mel Allomes, Bakers Delight for all the awards during the season and for donating the bread for today’s presentation. Mary Ellen Hotel for the weekly awards and Grill’d for all the awards during the season

And lastly big thanks my family Robyn, Clare, Sally, Bridget and Rebecca who put up with my relentless netball rants and raves and my obsession with stats and predictions.

Hi all,

Please see below an email from Adam Goodes in relation to an incident involving Sheryl Cross. Sheryl took a stand against racial abuse and it has been acknowledged by Adam. You should be very proud of yourself Sheryl.

Hi Grant
Thanks for sharing your inspiring action that one of your 15 year old girls did whilst playing sport. It takes a very courageous person to stand up for what they believe in and to hear stories from people like yourself and what has happen in your community it gives me a lot of hope that we all can help our own communities stamp out racism.
As long as we keep supporting our young people about what is right and wrong we will give them the skills and knowledge to make the right choices going forward.
Have a great week
