Netball season is just around the corner

We hope you are all looking forward to getting back out on the courts. A big thank you to all the volunteers who have been busy working to fill teams, find coaches, umpires all of these people help us to collectively to get the players on the court. 


When we look at our registrations for March 2024, compared to same time last year it is great to see some slight growth across our overall numbers, with increases in our junior and NetSetGo registrations. Growth all be it small, is great for our small Association this means we have young kids joining our sport and that helps to create sustainable netball her in our local community.


It is really important that our non-playing volunteers join our Association as members, its simple and easy and best of all it is FREE to register in PlayHQ. This means that every volunteer is covered by insurance and allow us to have a full picture and understanding of our volunteer workforce.
