Great news, 2019 Netball and NetSetGo registrations are now open via the MyNetball website.  Please follow the links provided on the WPS P&C or WPS Netball Club Facebook pages. Players have also been emailed all instructions, links and the draft 2019 season calendar. Please carefully read the notes before you log into your MyNetball account.

Players in Year 4 (2019) and not turning 10 in 2019, must register on the U9 NSG form. However they are likely to be playing U10 Netball on Friday nights, dependent on registration numbers and grading results. (These players may then have the opportunity to repeat U10s in 2020, as playing in the correct age group is of great benefit to them.)

ACTIVE KIDS $100 REBATE IS NOW OPEN VIA THE SERVICE NSW WEBSITE, USING YOUR DAUGHTER’S MEDICARE NUMBER.

REDEEM YOUR VOUCHER AT THE LAST STEP IN THE FINAL PAYMENT STAGE OF NETBALL REGISTRATION. YOUR REGISTRATION WILL BE REDUCED TO $75 (plus transaction fee).

We are looking forward to a fantastic 2019 season! Any queries please email Mel & Kirsten on wpsnetballclub@gmail.com

2019 Pre-season refresher session

Thanks to all our Netball players for ateending the pre-season training course on Monday.

Bookings for NSG players to attend the pre-season training session on Monday March 4th, are still open via the NETS website. Refer P&C home page.

Let’s be the Gold standard spectators!

Our club reputation is one of the best in the Association. Let’s keep it that way by ensuring all WPSNC spectators (parents, carers, visitors) know where they are allowed to stand to view the game. If we take the time to understand where we can stand around the court and hence keep out of the umpire’s way, they’ll be able to do a better job and we’ll all have a better netball experience.

Take a look at the court map below for clarification of netball spectator and umpire zones. Plus the best place for the scorers to stand.

 

 

General Information

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 8am at courts in North Sydney. The competition commences in April 2019. Match times will be provided by NSNA in March 2019.

The top grades of U9s NetSetGo are played under full netball rules, generally at WLC.

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 2019.

All players, parents, coaches, managers, umpires and spectators must abide by the Willoughby Netball Club’s Codes of Conduct.

Team Grading

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 2019 can remain in their friendship teams from 2018. Girls STARTING to play in the NetSetGo comp in Year 3, 2019, will be allocated a team to play with. Friendship groups will be accommodated where possible. 

Important Age Note for 7 year olds (2019): players who commence NetSetGo at age 7 (based on calendar year), may be required to play 3 years of NetSetGo.

Training

Training begins in early March and is held either at School or Willoughby Leisure Centre, before or after school.

The training timetable is available from the end of February each season.

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.
