Why you love being part of the South Coast Blaze
Blaze is a young entity which is continuously growing, developing and improving. Blaze is open to new ideas and the one dream, one team” Moto is felt throughout players, committee and fans. Being part of Blaze feels like we are providing even more opportunities to all netballers, which is the ultimate goal. It’s all about the players, not the politics.
