Marnie had a lot of players in her squad this year and she endeavoured to improve skills and provide court time for all of them.

Team captains and representatives made presentation to each of the coaches: Marnie Bibby, Maxine Clough and Joan Pyke, in appreciation of the coaching efforts and encouragement throughout the year.

Netball president, Treena Slorach, thanked the coaches on behalf of the club and made special mention of Joan Pyke.

This was the fourth season in a row where Joan has coached a Navarre team into a grand final.

Treena also acknowledged the work of Roslyn Comitti. Roslyn is a very dedicated club person and is one of the first to arrive at the ground on game day.
