Congratulations to our Development Squad, the Lightning Bolts who finished the Parkville Netball Competition Open A grade division season in fourth place. Unfortunately the Bolts semi final opponents forfeited the match and the team will progress automatically to the preliminary final next week.
The Development Squad concept was implemented in 2013 and provides high performance coaching & playing opportunities for players who have been identified as having the potential to progress to the Club’s VNL 19/u team.
Since the inception of the Bolts program in 2013, the team has not made the finals, on only three occasions. That’s now 10 finals appearances out of a possible 13. That is just incredible.
The squad trains alongside the 19/u team & are widely considered to be the future of the Club.
