Congratulations Ridgettes Player - Jayden Molo

Congratulations to Ridgettes player Jayden Molo on her performance in the Qld Schoolgirls U12 team at the School Sport Australian Netball Championships in Adelaide last week.

QLD placed 3rd overall in the competition.

Jayden played 3 games a day and said of the competition that it was 'hard but fun'.

From Nicole Forbes, Ridgettes Coaching Convenor "Through Jayden's love of the sport and determination she has reached her goal of making a state team. This is just the start for Jayden and with more grit and determination we could be looking at another Firebird of the future. Keep up the good work Jayden and I look forward to seeing what the future holds for you in the sport".

Well done Jayden. Ridgettes is looking forward to supporting your netball in the coming years!

Fundraising for Piper

Today the BNA & Ridgettes presented the Uzelac family with a cheque for the funds raised from the Play 4 Piper Day held on 13th May.

We raised $3,523.15 to help Justin, Louise & the girls while Piper is sick.

Thank you BNA for your flexibility and unwavering support for our fundraising efforts.

Thanks also to our sponsors who ensured our total expenses for the day were less than $40 and most importantly thank you to all our customers who supported our fundraising efforts on the day - you were very generous!

We were truly blown away by the amount raised - our netball community is awesome 💛💛

Uzelac Cheque

Mid Season Update

Focus on coaches - the club has released a number of updates throughout this season with regard our coaches. Coaches make this club what it is. Some ways to support your daughter's coach:

1. Attend training as a priority

2. Display respect to and about your child's coach in front of your children

3. Try not to interfere with court positions your daughter is placed in - they will benefit from playing all positions

4. Be aware that your sideline behaviour has an impact on your daughter - how many of you have been told to stop yelling out by your child?

5. Follow correct procedures if you find yourself with an issue about the team, coach etc. Please do not use the time after a game to approach your child's coach and 'have it out' with them in front of your child and other parents.

As always Ridgettes would like to be able to pride itself on a club who has members who abide by the Netball Australia's Code of Beahviour. CLICK HERE to read the Rules & Code of Behaviour. 
We have a very busy few weeks leading up to the end of our Fixtures (July 29th). We are looking forward to seeing quite a few Ridgettes teams in the Semi finals and on. 


Organising volunteers to meet our Association's requirements is always a challenge. We are lucky at Ridgettes that we have a core group of people who will put their hand up to help every single time. One project we are working on is getting more of our members involved in volunteering more often.


One way this can happen is through volunteering with our club - whilst our committee positions are currently full, we have Canteen requirements at fixtures, we have timekeeping and scoring requirements to be fulfilled. We have also seen a number of fundraisers and we are planning a special Presentation event at the close of the Winter season.

Please make sure you continue to refer to our website, Facebook page or on Instagram for updates. On here you will find information about Ridgettes, our Online uniform shop including 2nd hand classifieds and links to drawsladders and results
