Gateball Australia is hosting a Gateball Captain Development Program to be held on the weekend of the 20th and 21st of May that will bring Gateball captains from around Australia to the Moreton Bay Region of Queensland. The program aimed at supporting Gateball captains to improve their competition strategy and tactics will be led by the Gateball High Performance Manager, Philip Brown and Level 3 Gateball Coaches, Barbara Northcott, John Park, Geoff Crook and Glen Whitehead.
The development program has been given a huge boost of over $3,300 in funding from the Moreton Bay Regional Council through a Community Activities Grant and Local Councillor Karl Winchester will welcome participants to the region and open the event.
The funding provided by the grant will provide court and training equipment, printing of course materials and catering for the event. Funding was also received to film part of the development program so that videos can be produced to train future captains and players.
Moreton Bay Region has several Gateball playing clubs (Pine Rivers, Eildon, Moreton Bay and Bribie Island) and Gateball Captains from the region will be attending the program. We can expect to see flow on benefits for local Gateball players and the wider community as we build our Gateball capability and offer more Gateball playing opportunities. Most clubs in the region currently run Gateball Come and Try sessions through the Moreton Bay Healthy and Active Program which encourages locals to try new activities.
We are very grateful to Moreton Bay Regional Council for their support of Gateball and the Gateball Captain Development Program.
