In 2019 and 2020, the Northern Rays continued to engage within the community at many carnivals, clinics and meet and greets.
Although the 2020 season was harder than the years previous due to the COVID 19 restrictions, we remained a positive influence for local Netballers within the North.
Our Ambassadors attended the popular McDonald’s Junior Carnival in Townsville which saw clubs from all over the North competing at the two day event. The girls spent time with the teams, participated in the March Pasts and supported the trophy presentations.
Our ‘Train like a Ray’ clinics are always a favourite with the juniors and schools. In 2020, the Northern Rays ran successful clinics in Townsville and Tully. Many more clinics are planned for 2021.
We love meeting our fans, so the Northern Rays Meet and Greets and poster signings will remain as part of our Home Game activities. Some restrictions may apply due to our COVID policy.
At each of our Northern Rays home games, we will offer a free designated area for one local charity to utilise to raise funds and awareness for their charity.
In 2021, our Northern Rays Ambassadors will be involved in community fundraisers including McHappy Day, Red Nose Day, Mayors Special Children’s Christmas Party and more.
