SIGNING UP & REGISTRATION FEES

We run on a three-term-per-year basis. Fees for your initial term cover coaching and club starter kit (one shirt, one pair of shorts, a pair of socks, and a bag). Registration is done via TeamSnap.

For each new term, you will be automatically re-registered, and an invoice will be sent to your email for payment. Each term varies in number of weeks/sessions, and the term’s fees will reflect this. If you join mid-way through a term, your fees will be pro-rated.

THE CENTAURS WAY

We wear our yellow and blue with pride, on and beside the pitch.

Believing that an inspired child is an inspirational child, our ethos is about inspiring children through sport. Encouraging a diverse education for kids beyond academics. The attitude and commitment to a team game teaches life-long skills of integrity, discipline, sportsmanship, teamwork, self-confidence and leadership, amongst other valuable traits.

PROFESSIONAL COACHING

Your child’s coaching team will be made up of dedicated Head Coaches, Pro-Coaches, and volunteer parents.

A typical training session includes a warm-up, skills, drills and a game. All age groups at Centaurs participate in various tournaments and friendlies throughout the year.

Karla Loughnan

Karla attained her level 1 coaching certificate while she was at University and has enjoyed coaching many young netball teams since this time. These include; teams in local competitions, school representative teams and even teams competing at the NSW State Championship level. More recently, she has coached school teams in Singapore’s ACSIS league, her own daughter’s netball teams at ANZA as well as primary school students within school PE programmes.

She began playing netball at a very young age and finished 26 enjoyable seasons later, only retiring to become a mother. She played at the school, club and representative level in various country towns throughout New South Wales, Australia before finishing her netball career at the competitive state league level in Sydney and then Melbourne.

Karla enjoys coaching netball to all age groups. She places great importance on basic skills at all levels and gets much satisfaction from individual as well as team improvement. She blends intensity with fun and encourages humour in her sessions. Her hope is that all young netballers will love learning and playing the game well beyond their teenage years.

Why play touch?

Touch is a minimal contact sport that encourages fun, fitness, coordination, communication and team spirit. It can be picked up at any age, and size or shape play little influence on how good you are. Rare in sport, Centaurs Touch invites mums and sons, dads and daughters to play together in the same games.

You do not need special gear or equipment for touch – come in trainers or boots, and sports wear. Water is essential, even if playing in the evenings.
