Dennington A grade coach Sharon Kenna believes her team can still make finals despite losing some of its star veterans.
The Dogs will enter Warrnambool and District league season 2021 without gun goalie Jess Haberfield who will play with Merrivale this season.
Kenna confirmed Kristie Bolden (studying) and Krystal Roads were not playing this year.
She added Sarah Jacobs was recovering from a knee injury.
Lani Keane, Angela Northcott and Zoe Fleming are the only three regular A-graders left from 2019.
It means there'll be opportunities for newcomers and youngsters.
Goalie Meg Atrill (South Warrnambool) and midcourter Hannah Rose (Warrnambool Blues) are recruits on board.
Meanwhile, Kenna has brought up Maddie Solly and Rochelle Winnen from A reserve.
"They played in the 2019 A reserve grand final in defence together," Kenna said.
Solly, who was runner-up in the 2019 A reserve league best and fairest, also played some top-grade netball for the Dogs in 2019.
"Rochelle came from B grade to A reserve and now she's going to have a crack in A grade, she's really progressed," Kenna added.
Otherwise, the coach will draw on the club's youngsters and juniors.
She said the likes of Emily Manuell and Bec Rea, who have recently graduated to senior netball, were in the mix for selection.
