THE Calder Cup is up for grabs again when Bendigo Senior Secondary College takes on Castlemaine SC in Tuesday's football and netball matches.

First contest is the boys' netball on the Queen Elizabeth Oval court from 10.30am.

A new-look BSSC Lions will aim to continue its winning run in the netball.

The Lions are coached by Kara Fox, who along with husband Mark was a key player in the challenge kicking off several years ago.

Castlemaine won last year's girls' football match.

The Emma Grant-coached BSSC Lions will be determined to regain the Cup when they play Castlemaine at the Tom Flood Sports Centre in Barnard Street from noon.

A boundary umpire in Bendigo FL senior matches and field in juniors, Bronte Annand will play in the ruck for the BSSC Lions.

"We have a stronger team this year," Annand said.

"A lot of the girls are playing in the Bendigo under-18 girls competition."

Annand took up umpiring as another way to keep fit for tennis and volleyball.

Football is now number one.

Bendigo SSC's team on the netball court includes Australian representative Jayden Cowling.

It's the second Calder Cup match Cowling will play in.

Slick passes will be a key to BSSC's play.

Cowling is likely to start in the mid-court for BSSC against Castlemaine.

A big year for Cowling will include playing for Australia's under-19 team in October.
