Proud partnership lighting the way

More than 260 young Tasmanian women will be assisted to pursue their passion for netball through a partnership between St.LukesHealth and the Karana Flames.
 
Tasmanian not-for-profit health insurer St.LukesHealth has partnered with the Karana Netball Club as naming-rights sponsor for the 2019 season.
 
St.LukesHealth Head of Brand and Communications Grayson Genders said assisting young women and girls in pursuing their sporting passion was important in setting them up for a healthy and active life.
 
The partnership will also nurture young women to progress into the national netball league.
 
”St.LukesHealth has been a long-time supporter of the Karana Flames and the naming-rights partnership takes this support to the next level,” Mr Genders said.
 
“At St.LukesHealth we are passionate about supporting those in the community, particularly those clubs at grassroots level, who develop their players, coaches and support staff to go onto the next level.
 
 “The Karana Flames have consistently displayed that they are dedicated to providing club members with a positive platform for health and well-being, while focussing on developing their players’ life skills.”
 
St.LukesHealth Karana Flames president Patricia Di Carlo said the partnership would allow the club to focus on strengthening the netball league in Tasmania as well as identify up-and-coming talent.
 
“St.LukesHealth has been a long-time partner of the club and has recognised the growth that we are having,” Mrs Di Carlo said.
 
“Women’s sport in Tasmania is recognised for its development of young women into athletes. But at St.LukesHealth Karana Flames we have taken the view that we cannot sit back and allow other sports to syphon our best talent if we aren’t going to help ourselves by leading the way. 
 
“Not only has St.LukesHealth assisted with the purchase of uniforms, equipment and coaching courses, but we’ve also been able to invest in a restructured coaching panel, develop a full preseason strength and conditioning program for our State League teams and provide health education forums for our members and the netball community.
 
“The fund’s commitment to the club has also allowed us to roll out the Flames Academy this year for our young flames (10 to 14-year-olds) and future flames (14 to 18-year-olds) who have been identified within the club to develop their skills.”
 
The St.LukesHealth Karana Netball Club will start its season on March 30, 2019 with 32 teams participating in rosters from the under 11s through to the State League.
