FEVER STARS HOLD COURT
West Coast Fever’s goal shooters came to town last week to see Narrogin’s Shooting Stars.
Shooting Stars received a visit and some coaching lessons from netball hotshots Jhaniele Fowler and Beryl Friday at the Narrogin Senior High School last Thursday.
A group of 35 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls in years 7-10 are part of the Narrogin program, which focuses on education by using netball to promote health, wellbeing and school attendance.
Fowler and Friday spent their time helping the participants learn valuable skills and build their confidence, both in the classroom and out on the court.
Shooting Stars executive officer Fran Haintz said it was important for young girls to have strong female role models.
“Giving the girls the opportunity to be involved with female leaders in their industry exposes them to a variety of career opportunities and really encourages them to set life goals and strive to be the best versions of themselves,” Ms Haintz said.
“We’re extremely lucky to have Jhaniele as a Shooting Stars Ambassador and a proud indigenous woman like Beryl in the (West Coast) Fever environment, and for them to spend their day with our participants was something they will treasure for a long time.”
