The Katanning Netball Association wrapped up its exciting regular season at the weekend.

Juniors and seniors concluded their regular season looking to get one last win, while for some teams their year came to an end.

The real action starts now with three intense weeks of finals to determine the champions.

The Net and Set program finished up for 2021, and both sections of the program held their own unique awards presentation at the end of the last session run by Kirraly Lucas and Megan Irvine.

A group of the junior players have given their time each Saturday morning to help these programs and it was great to see young kids so eager to play netball one day.

It was also fantastic to see the junior girls and keen to learn coaching skills.
