The Zebras start the season with some faces and fancy new equipment.

The first Sunday of the new season saw some new and familiar faces trying out for the Zebra's. Welcome back and aboard guys.

Thanks to Garry and Sean we have some fantastic agility equipment. The equipment will help with our agility and provide some good fun as we run round poles, jump over hoops and dance on ladders.

Below is a summary of the New Rules for this season
