Junior players from all over south-east Queensland learnt about faith and the game during the 16th Mega Sportz Netball Camp at Moogerah this week.
Run by the Presbyterian Church of Queensland, the sister camp to the Mega Sportz Soccer Camp held at the same venue last week, taught the kids valuable lessons in life, as well as netball skills.
Camp director Narelle Jackson said across the five days the girls learn about God and Jesus, and how to apply the teachings of Christ to their own lives.
“They also do lots of netball drills and nightly activities such as a disco and movie night,” she said.
“They absolutely love it.”
25-year-old Anna Beavis loves the Mega Sportz Netball Camp so much she has attended every one of those 16 years and returned in 2018 as an instructor.
“I love the community of the camp,” she said.
“I love the kids.
“I love the sport, but I love what we do as a leadership team – teaching kids about faith and community.”
The camp culminated with the 55 girls contesting a two-day mini-Commonwealth Games at the Boonah Netball Courts.
“Thank you to the Fassifern Netball Association,” Mrs Jackson said.
