The Katanning Netball Association will have a season in 2020, committing to playing juniors, while the senior competition has been cancelled. The decision was made at an executive meeting last Tuesday night after the KNA got clubs to engage members on if they would like a season and what their numbers could look like. At the meeting it was determined there were not enough senior team nominations for a season to proceed. However, a survey revealed 98 per cent of parents wanted a junior season to go ahead. The committee met last Thursday night and are planning on having a 10-week season starting on July 25 for juniors. Registrations have opened for juniors and will close next Thursday. KNA president Kelly Holzknecht said although it was disappointing there would not be a senior season, it was great to see support for the juniors. “We thank everyone for their patience and engagement over the last few weeks as we have worked towards a return to community netball,” she said. “We are very excited, with the lifting of restrictions, that we can offer a junior season and continue to work towards developing our players, officials umpires and coaches. “We are very excited to see everyone back on the courts and that familiar sound of spectators chatting, whistles blowing and players running around on the courts.” As the season length is reduced, Netball WA and KNA have lowered their fees as much as possible to make the total season fee more achievable for families.
