The Beez newly formed U/ 12 girls team were playing in their first representative competition but didn’t get a win on Sunday.

We’re sure their skills will soon catch up to their eager enthusiasm to play.

Last Saturday the Byron Beez ran an U/12s skills day at the Cavanbah Centre with over 30 children attending eager to learn some of the finer points and skills of the game. 

Big thanks to coaches Alvin Caoyonan, Matt Barlow and Nash Campbell.
