NetSetGo Gala Day

Netball squads and training available at WLC
WPS Netball Club is a parent-run organisation encouraging all WPS students from Grade 2 to Grade 6 to participate in the sport of netball.
Our teams play in the Northern Suburbs Netball Association (NSNA) winter competition, which runs from the beginning of April until the end of September. For more information regarding Netball, click here to go directly to the NSNA website.
All girls under 10 are eligible to participate in a modified rules version of netball, called NetSetGo. The NetSetGo Comp (formerly Nettas) is designed to teach younger players the rules of the game, as well as good sportsmanship and netball skills.
NetSetGo U8s and U9s are generally not graded and the girls mostly play in friendship teams. NetSetGo matches are played on Saturday mornings from 7:45am at a venue to be determined in 2017. The competition commences in April 2016. Match times will be provided by NSNA in March 2017.
The top grades of U9s NetSetGo are played under full netball rules with lowered posts.
Our U10s, U11s and U12s players, participate in Friday night netball, from 4.30-7pm at the Willoughby Leisure Centre. Some of the 12s teams may play on Saturday mornings at WLC. This will be determined by NSNA in March 2017.
All players, parents, coaches, managers, umpires and spectators must abide by the Willoughby Netball Club’s Codes of Conduct.
|All U10s, U11s and U12s girls registering to play netball for WPS Netball Club will be individually graded and allocated to teams based on their skills and ability. The grading process is independent and is undertaken by graders provided by Northern Suburbs Netball Association.
Coaches and managers from the previous season are also asked to rank the players in their teams.
The U10s, U11s and U12s teams play in a competition where all Clubs individually grade both their players and teams to ensure all girls are playing in the division which best reflects their capabilities.
In registering your daughter to play for WPS Netball Club you agree to accept this grading process and the decision of the Club on team selection. If you chose to withdraw your daughter from the Club following grading you will forfeit the registration fee.
You can see more about our grading policy here.
For NetSetGo, the netball convenors will do their best to ensure that all requests to play with friends are accommodated.
All U9s girls who are in Year 3 in 2017 will remain in their friendship teams from 2016.
Girls STARTING to play in the NetSetGo comp in year 3, 2017, will be allocated a team to play with. Friendship groups will be accommodated where possible.
Important Age Note for 7 year olds (2017): players who commence NetSetGo at age 7 (based on calendar year), may be required to play 3 years of NetSetGo.
Training begins in early March and is held either at school, Willoughby Leisure Centre or at Club Willoughby (Crabbes Ave) before or after school.
The 2016 training timetable will be determined by the end of February.
Please note that training days and times are subject to change, according to court and coach’s availability.
Codes of Conduct
WPS Netball Club has Codes of Conduct for all players, parents, guardians, spectators and coaches. Failure to abide by the Codes of Conduct may result in expulsion from the club or a ban on attending matches.
