The Capricorn Schools Netball League provides a platform for netball players to compete for their schools in the national league and to play competitive netball of high standard, thereby enhancing their own skills. Furthermore, sports, including netball, play an important role in building character and fostering teamwork, commitment, and hard work among the youth. At Capricorn Group, we remain committed to supporting sports development, especially women's sports, to create sustainable opportunities in the regions and communities where we operate," said Mrs Marlize Horn, Group Executive: Brand & Corporate Affairs at Capricorn Group.
