Fierce and powerful, yet friendly

Fierce and powerful, yet friendly Image

Meet the captains from the top of the Active Melbourne City Sports leader board.

Active Melbourne City Sports is half way into the 14-week spring season and, so far, more than 400 inner city Melburnians have spent their lunch breaks getting active on the Docklands netball, basketball and soccer courts.

With only seven weeks to go, the competition is heating up.

Leading the netball is Find Wonderball, the defending champions from Myer. The team is led by captain, Amy Campbell, and is in its 10th season on top.

After five years, Amy continues to thoroughly enjoy the program, saying: “The competition gives us a chance to get out of the office at lunch time.”

The Wednesday basketball program has more than 45 players competing in a 3v3 competition. Spiire Red is currently leading, just in front of Myer’s Shaqtin ‘a’ Fool.

The fierce and powerful, yet very friendly, Spiire Red team is in its first season. Captain, Monica Majok, said the team was proud to be on the top of the leader board.

“It feels great, our team chemistry is building and we are really enjoying ourselves out there,” she said.

Myer’s Shaqtin ‘a’ Fool is hot on the Spiire Red’s tail. However, Majok has a strong strategy in place to shoot for the grand final.

“Show up, have fun and grab rebounds! But win or lose it’s all about getting out there and having fun!” she said.

More than 200 players participate in the Docklands soccer competition, which sees the program split over three days and four separate competitions. Lion has two teams in the competition. The Dave Show and the Lions are both leading the way in the Monday and Friday competitions.

Dave Phillips, who has participated in the Lions team for the last eight seasons, said: “The program definitely makes coming back to work on Monday more enjoyable.”

The Dave Show’s competitive streak dates back a few years and was highlighted in its recent close grand final win against Jacob’s Thunder.

The spring semi-finals will start in November. Supporters are encouraged to pack a lunch and come on down to watch.

Docklands Sports Courts netball, basketball and soccer team registrations will open in November for the upcoming 2018 autumn season, which will start in February.
