On Thursday, 22 February 2018, all our dedicated netball coaches attended a very informative coaching clinic, hosted by netball experts, Gertrude Roux and Caroline Roets.
Met passie en ‘n liefde vir dié sport het ons dames met opgewondenheid die kliniek bygewoon. Vele tegnieke en spelpatrone is in diepte bespreek; ‘n onderwerp wat beslis vernuwe motivering onder die afrigters gekweek het.
Our Ever coaches look forward to the new season and they are eager to implement all that they have learnt from these avid ladies. With new “tricks of the trade” we are more motivated and have a burning desire to succeed.
Dankie aan al die afrigters wat hierdie kliniek bygewoon het. May this season be the best yet!
How blessed are we at Eversdal Primary School! We were again privileged to have a very good netball season in the beautiful surroundings of Eversdal. Most of our games were played on our well-kept courts of which we are so proud!
Die speelsters is die afgelope seisoen toegerus met goeie “netball-skills” en gaan die toekoms tegemoet met ‘n liefde en ‘n passie vir ons geliefde spel.
Baie dankie aan al ons speelsters wat elke oefening met soveel ywer en toewyding bygewoon het. Congratulations to our players for every triumph on and off the court. Well done to every coach and assistant coach – your hard work and dedication paid off.
Volgende seisoen maak ons weer so!
On Thursday evening, 3 August, Eversdal hosted 10 schools to compete in the Chas Everitt Fast 5 tournament. It was the 3rd of its kind, once again sponsored by Chas Everitt. Elke skool het 9 wedstryde van 10 minute elk gespeel. Die wedstryde het gesorg vir groot opwinding onder spelers en ouers.
The tournament ended in an unlikely 3 way tie. A nerve wrecking shoot-out, separated the 3 teams. Gene Louw ended as 3rd place winners, Durbanville took 2nd place and De Kuilen walked away as victors of the night.
Dankie aan ons borg, Chas Everitt, ouers, toeskouers, spelers en personeellede wat hierdie aand ‘n sukses gemaak het.
Quote: Sportsmanship is the ability to win without bragging, to lose without complaining and to play while respecting others.
On Saturday, 3 June, the U.13A Netball team competed in the second round of the Top Schools Tournament. Our girls played 3 games against Gene Louw, Bastion and Zwaanswyk respectively.
Die Somerset-Wes-windjie het die dag moeilik gemaak vir ons doele, maar nietemin het ons meisies pragtige netbal opgedis en goed gevaar teen sterk kompetisie.
On Saturday, 20 May, our Evers went head-to-head against the very strong teams of Gene Louw. A cold and wintery morning made for a slow start. Aan die einde van die dag het al die dogters hul beste gegee en goeie netbal gespeel. Ons is baie trots op elke dogter wat Saterdag ons skool verteenwoordig het.
The Netball fast five tournament hosted by Kenridge Primary School, on Saturday the 13th of May, made our u/12 and u/13 C&D girls take a walk on the wild side. Wild, because instead of 7 players per team, they were now reduced to 5, which meant the game was automatically a faster paced game than usual. It was a development tournament where our girls had fun throughout the day. They could improve on skills needed for normal netball games, as they were required to think and act a lot faster than usual.
Although it was a long day, it went by rather quickly and both u/12 & u/13 teams had a “ball”.
This past Saturday, our school hosted Paarl Gimnasium for what would be a tough battle. Our netball girls played very well, winning most of their games. The U.13B netball girls of both teams, as well as their coaches, wore white ribbons in honour of their teachers who recently passed. Dankie aan al die ouers en leerders wat ons dogters kom ondersteun het.
This past Saturday, our Everfs travelled to Swartland, a small town situated in the heart of the Boland. Our girls played exceptional netball and won 95% of their games. Ons dogters het met passie gespeel en daarmee hul liefde vir die sport bewys. We are immensely proud of our girls. Weereens dankie aan al die ondersteuners, ons afrigters en dogters waardeer dit opreg!
On Wednesday, 26 April, our coaches, together with 23 netball players took the long road to Knysna. Ons o/12A, o/13B en o/13A’s neem jaarliks deel aan die Knysna-netbaltoernooi. Each teams played a total 12 games over 3 days, in extreme heat. Ons is vreeslik trots op hierdie dogters wat Eversdal se naam hoog gehou het. Ons het talle komplimente oor ons dogters gekry en hulle het voorwaarlik pragtige netbal gespeel. A big thank you to all the parents and sponsors for giving our children this amazing opportunity. Dankie ook aan ons ouers wat getroue ondersteuners langs die baan was. Volgende jaar maak ons weer so!
Eversdal hosted Van Riebeeckstrand last Saturday, it was the the first netball games for the season. Our girls were filled with enthusiasm, the excitement was visible on their faces. We had an amazing start to our netball season, winning more than 80% of our games. We are proud of every Ever who took part with such enthusiasm. We thank every parent who supported our teams.
May this be the first of many wonderful achievements.
