There's nothing like a strong, chilly wind across Maitland Park to test your mettle on a Saturday morning.
But the Maitland Netball Association’s young players are made of stern stuff and they prevailed against the cold and gusty conditions to turn in some remarkable performances.
Passes stuck, goals were shot and there was no let up in enthusiasm in round two of Maitlland netball.
The Maitland Mercury caught up with action in the 8-9 years competition on Saturday and the learners program where a game of What’s the time Mr Wolf got the youngsters nice and warm.
Also are included previously unpublished photos from round one of junior netball action.
