THE Brothers Netball Club will finalise its preparation for the new season with two grading days this weekend.

Tomorrow juniors from under-8s to under-16s will be graded before the seniors get their chance on Sunday.

It will be the first time players aged between 8 and 10 will be graded after Bundy's clubs took over control of the nippers program from the Bundaberg Netball Association.

Brothers president Melissa Boge said it was exciting to welcome new faces to the club.

"This is going to be great for these age groups as they will get more focused development which will in turn make them stronger players,” she said.

The club will also have an external selector, Gold Coast coach Anna Young, come on the day.

The grading starts at 9am today at the Brothers Sports Complex.

Meanwhile, new netball club Fusion will be holding a senior trial day for players at the Bundaberg Super Park at 4pm tomorrow.

There will also be trials for Bundaberg junior and senior representative sides at the Super Park this weekend.
