Netball Trials

Students will be trialled at school during lunchtime for Year 4,5 & 6 – Dates for 2018 – Tuesday 20th & Wednesday 21st March. Please note that a registration form must be completed and payment must be made before the trial dates.  Please also ensure your child has the correct shoes to trial in and that long hair is secured back. No player will be considered for top team selection unless they trial.  Please refer to Sports Handbook for top team selection process.

Trialling can be an exciting and/or stressful experience for children and parents, especially for those who are anxious to improve their skills or worrying for those who find themselves in a different team, not with their friends. The reason for it is to help enable those with like abilities to play together, but also open the door for new players. Michele Wallace (from Netball North Harbour) will conduct our trials and we do our very best to ensure team selection is as fair as possible.

Please have a discussion with your child before the trials and assure them that whatever team they find themselves in, they will still have every opportunity to improve both individual skills and team spirit.

Once the trials are complete, teams will be formed based on the abilities during the selection process and parents informed. All trials are final and are not up for negotiation.
