Click here to register your child for Netball. Registrations close MONDAY 11 April.

Games are played after school on Tuesdays at the Edgar Centre. The 2022 season begins on Tuesday 31 May and goes through until 16 August.

Teams are available for Years 1-6. Teams will be arranged according to the numbers and year levels of interested students.

Parent help to manage teams and umpire games on the day is essential. Coaching/practices for many teams is available at school as we have a large number of student teachers able to help. However, each team requires parents to take on the game day roles. We require a manager and an umpire (or someone happy to do both) in order to enter each team. Clear guidelines for the rules for each age group will be given and there is a lot of support at the courts on the day. Please indicate if you would be willing to help manage a team on the registration form.

Practices take place during school lunch times and announced in the daily notices at school.

The cost for 2021 is $60 per child. $30 uniform top (purchase) / $20 uniform top (hire)
