A TEAM of young netballers built on the support of a Raymond Terrace organisation could be a force to reckon with this upcoming season.
The Koori Dolphins under-14 side discussed team tactics and tips with two state government ministers, including the Port’s own Craig Baumann, when the side met down at the Port Stephens Family Support Service (PSFSS) centre last week.
NSW Minister for Family and Community Services Pru Goward was in town to inspect the centre and meet and greet with its manager Sue Pollock and those linked with its services.
Ms Goward paid recognition to the good work the centre does, including its involvement with young indigenous people.
She and Mr Baumann presented netballers with match balls, and honoured the contribution of team coach Renae Lamb, who recently undertook a traineeship at PSFSS.
Member for Port Stephens Craig Baumann said the formation of the netball team was a wonderful example of how community-based organisations and dedicated individuals, such as Ms Lamb and Ms Pollock, support children and families.
“The families of many of these young people in the netball team have participated in programs provided by Port Stephens Family Support Services,” he said.
