Dalari Fast5 Netball Tournament comes to PCYC Yarrabah

PCYC Queensland and Netball Queensland are set to host the Dalari Fast5 Netball Tournament at PCYC Yarrabah this Saturday, 19 October.

Welcoming girls aged from 11-14, seven teams are expected to travel to the tournament from Indigenous communities across Far North Queensland including Hope Vale, Kuranda, Mareeba, Cairns, Cooktown, Wujal Wujal and Yarrabah.

PCYC Queensland CEO Phil Schultz is pleased to deliver the tournament in celebration of the recently upgraded netball courts, supported by the Local Government Association of Queensland and Yarrabah Aboriginal Shire Council.

“PCYC Queensland is pleased to support this Netball Queensland event, which provides an opportunity for young girls to foster sporting skills and come together to represent their communities,” said Mr Schultz.

Netball Queensland Diamond Spirit and Inclusion Lead, Lee Wilson, is delighted to have forged a strong partnership with PCYC Queensland over the past three years to support the growth of netball.

“Having a brand-new court at PCYC Yarrabah is an amazing opportunity for women and girls in Yarrabah. We thank the Council for supporting the future of netball and we look forward to providing ongoing support for netball in Yarrabah over the coming years,” said Ms Wilson.

Fast5 Netball is social and fun. The pace and speed of the game is fast and intense with six-minute quarters, with five players a side and rolling substitutes.
