NORMALLY space awareness is a term reserved for on the court in the netball world but this season it'll be more relevant towards actions off the court as the Macleay Valley starts its netball season this Saturday.
It's been a long wait but our regions netballers are finally ready to pass and shoot their way to glory.
Clubs for this season come from areas all through the Macleay, including South West Rocks, Crescent Head, Frederickton, Macleay Netball Association Reps and various Kempsey based teams.
The junior competition will start at 10am and 11:45am with a range of divisions from GO to 2B playing.

The Macleay Netball association has been extremely proactive in their COVID-19 safety precautions with yellow crosses on the verandah and down the entry ramp leading up the canteen indicating social-distancing requirements.
Players and spectators are encouraged to bring their own seating but if they use the seating provided they need to be wiped over with the association marking benches with 1.5m of separation.
Entry and exit to the netball grounds are specific with entry restricted to the opening closest to the club house and exist at the opening closest to court seven and eight.
The association is also only permitted to have 2 people serving inside the canteen with the restrictions.
