Sporting double delight

Come n Try netball

Noosa Council is hosting another of its popular Come-n-Try Sports events and this time it’s double the fun.

Events will be held on Tuesday 13 February at Tewantin, and Tuesday 20 February at Cooroy, catering to both coastal and hinterland communities, and doubling the excitement for local primary school children.

In Tewantin, on 13 February, the fields at the Noosa District Sports Complex on McKinnon Drive will come alive with the spirit of rugby league, rugby union, tennis, AFL, netball, and more. Meanwhile, in Cooroy, on 20 February, youngsters can participate in AFL, rugby league, soccer, gymnastics, and golf, providing a diverse array of sporting experiences.

The Tewantin event runs from 3.30-5.30pm and the Cooroy event runs from 4-5.30 pm.

Community Facilities Manager, Brad Chalmers, said the Come-n-Try afternoons were a brilliant way for kids to get a feel for the various sports on offer and connect with the local sports clubs.

“Last year, we noticed fewer children from the hinterland schools attending Come-n-Try. So, this year, we’ve added the Cooroy event. An afternoon tea of fruit will be provided prior to the event, and then children will be led in several sports rotations by our local club coaches,” Mr Chalmers said.

This biannual sporting event continues the tradition of uniting local clubs and the Noosa community.

AFLQ Development Coordinator, Jacob Amore, welcomed the initiative of the Come-n-Try afternoons in both Tewantin and Cooroy.

“We’re thrilled to be involved and that there is an opportunity for the hinterland kids to experience the joy of AFL, especially with clubs based in Noosa and Pomona,” he said.

Noosa Council invites families and children to join these vibrant community events, fostering a love for sports and building lasting connections with local clubs.
