Expectations

 

We expect you to show respect, commitment, dedication and a strong work ethic. Our experienced and professional coaches run a structured program offering players the opportunity to develop and enhance their skills and to play to their highest potential. Players must be prepared to commit to attend training once per week and attend all matches and tournaments. Please do not apply if you cannot COMMIT to training and match commitments!

 

 

Training

 

Training is on Sunday mornings and for 2018 will be temporarily located at:

 

Great Ryrie Primary School
51A Great Ryrie St
Heathmont VIC 3135

 

 

Fees

 

Fees for the 2018 year are set out in the Information Handbook above.

  

 

Competitions

 

Both Open teams compete in the Tuesday night competition at the Waverley Netball Centre during the Autumn and Spring seasons. The Open teams do not currently play in tournaments.

 

17U teams compete in the  Monday Night and Wednesday Night competition at the Waverley Netball Centre during the Autumn and Spring seasons and compete in a minimum of 2 Sunday tournaments.

 

13U & 15U teams compete in the Thursday Night competition at the Waverley Netball Centre during the Autumn and Spring seasons and compete in a minimum of 2 Sunday tournaments.

 

11U development squad train for 20 weeks and play 4 Sunday tournaments between February and September.

 

Additionally the 15U/1 and 17U/1 teams will attend the Mildura Spring Carnival in September each year and the 13U/1, 13U/2, 15U/1, 15U/2, 17U/1 and 17U/2 teams will participate in the Association Championships in May.

 

 

Eligibility

 

Age

 

All age groups are calculated by the age you will turn in 2019. The age groups are that age and under.

 

For example – Katie has her birthday on the 29/11/19 and will be turning 15. She is eligible to play in 15U. Grace turns 16 on the 31/3/19 so will be playing 17U.

 

Qualifying

 

As the Representation Program is representing MENA we require all participants in the rep program to play with a MENA club during the domestic seasons with the exception being Open players who currently are encouraged, but not required to play, on a Saturday or with a Monday night team.

 

Players will need to have played enough games to qualify for finals in BOTH seasons (Spring and Autumn) in 2018 but are expected to fully participate in their team's season.

 

Failure to meet this condition will result in a loss of a place in the program. Extenuating circumstances may be taken into account by the Rep Subcommittee.
