“Clubs across Northern NSW are hosting a variety of events to celebrate from gala day’s for girls and boys, networking events, club BBQ’s, coaching certificates, referee training and much more.

“I encourage everyone to get involved!” said Haynes.

NNSWF is hosting a Networking Evening on Friday 28 June featuring guest speakers:
