Despite their struggles on the football side of the fence, the Moyston-Willaura Pumas had a solid season on the court in 2019 and they will be hoping to replicate that effort this year.
The club went down in the 2019 elimination final to Penshurst by just three goals, but they are ready to bounce back after 18 months of waiting.
A Grade coach Zanetta Hosking said she and her team are excited to kick their season off against Wickliffe-Lake Bolac at home on April 17, with the aim of making the finals once again.
"I hope that we make it to finals, which is the goal almost every year," she said.
"But I also want our team to have a great connection and enjoy every minute out there with them and have fun. To be honest we are super excited to see everyone play and give it a good go.
"I feel like my players are all super-talented and if we get it right, we can do a lot a damage.
"We have a young, fresh and new team with so much potential and I've always aimed for our A Grade to play a brand of netball that is calm, patient, skilful and goes hard for everything."
Hosking also said the club has welcomed some new additions to their A Grade side after three defenders and a goalie have left since the end of 2019.
"We have four new players up in A Grade this year, with Brooke and Kirsty Skubnik stepping up from B grade," she said.
"We also have two new-comers to the club with Louise Allan and Danielle Segedinski joining us.
"We are supper excited to see all four in action this year."
Hosking recognised her group is young, but she is looking forward to seeing them in action.
"Firstly I am most looking forward to simply getting to get out on court this year and being able to play netball," she said.
"Secondly to play and watch this young group of girls is exciting, we have so much potential and I know we can do really well."
