We are planning a return to play for seniors, collegiate and year 7 & 8 on the 20th June. (This may change due to the Covid-19 restrictions). The season will consist of a 3 round Presidents Cup and after the school holidays the Championship Round with finals planned for Friday the 28th August (still to be confirmed). The fees have been reduced to $300 per team for Collegiate, Senior and Prem teams.
Future Ferns will commence on the 1st of August with an 8 week program.
