Francis Jordan Netball Club (FJNC) Issue 12

May 15, 2019

Are We Having Fun Yet?

Fabulous to see our FJNC girls calling and passing, shooting and defending and most importantly having fun whilst improving their game, teamwork and friendships each week! Thank you to our coaches, managers and committee for constantly thinking of our athletes, preparing and running training and spending hours on game day rotations. Well done girls and parents!

Team Titans (U8) – Team of the Fortnight   
A word from Coach Eleanor – What a morning for our Titans, they brought their armour out and were ready for a fight. Isabella our centre started every pass strong and was all over that court like a hawk; Lara, Gracie and Sophie played a strong defence to intercept the other team every chance they got; Fiona executed her long passes successfully; Robyn worked hard to keep the ball in and out of the circle in her positions. Ava was all over the court with her jump blocks and bounce passes was on fire. Gabriella worked those open spaces to gain the ball every chance she got and Emma was a little superstar attempting that goal every chance she got, she found her groove and scored us the first goal of the season. The two of them worked that circle and scored a few more for our first win. They played hard and had fun all the way. Go Titans.

Fantastic to see Titan’s exuberant Mascot Ben cheering them on and making JNA headlines!!

Expressions of Interest
FJNC is the only school-based club at JNA, we turn 22 this year and are founding JNA members. We offer a friendship-based after school club with low fees, great coaching and we make for increased competition at JNA. We are well-respected and recognised as a strong club with great and happy players. Our club faces heavy competition from other netball clubs, associations and indoor centres, plus other sports such as AFL, Soccer, Hockey and Rugby. We are so glad you’ve chosen us for Netball – it’s a privilege to have an FJ team in most age groups, makes for a great competition!

What is a club without players? We are reaching out to parents who would like to enrol their child with FJNC for Spring 2019 and Winter 2020 season. Please contact us and let us know you will be wanting to enrol with us for the next two seasons as it would be a shame for us not to have a succession plan.

Furthermore, FJ Committee meet monthly – we organise registration, funding, coaching, managers, uniforms, wind ups and general running of the club in compliance with JNA policies and procedures. Our current committee of dedicated volunteer parents are – Anna Admans, Bronwyn Perkins, Karen Holmes, Kate Fitzsimons, Kath Greene, Mark and Sandra Kent. Some Committee members are moving on with their children after Winter 2019, so we will need to fill their shoes. Please contact us if you are interested in joining the committee so that we can plan to keep FJNC going. With interested players and parents, and a dedicated club body we’re bound to go from strength to strength!

Please contact us at or send a message to us on FB for more information on joining the Committee, or if you would like to enrol your child for next season. Boys encouraged too!
