Trial dates and information shall be promoted via email distributed to previous trial attendees and via School Sports Coordinators and Netball Club Captains.
Please keep an eye on our website at www.netballwellington.co.nz and "Like" our Facebook page to stay up to date.  If you wish to be added to our mailing list so as to be included in our mail-out once registrations open please advise your email address and age level to ndo@netballwellington.co.nz

Trial Eligibility Criteria...
To represent Netball Wellington Centre, players must be:

  • in Year 9, OR aged under, under 17 OR under 19 years of age as at the 1st of January 2017
  • currently registered, fully financial (all fees prior to 2017 paid up in full) and actively playing for a current school or club affiliated to the 2017 Netball Wellington Centre Winter Competition played on Saturdays at either the ASB Sports Centre or Hataitai Netball Courts.

As each of the five netball centres within the Wellington region (Netball Wellington Centre, Netball Hutt Valley Centre, Kapi Mana Netball Centre, Netball Kapiti and Netball Wairarapa) intend to select their own Year 9 &/or Under 15 along with Under 17 teams in 2017 there will be no dispensations granted for these age groups to trial for another centre. 

Under 19 teams will be selected depending on player availability within each Centre.  Under 19 players affliated to ther centres may be eligible for exception under the following circumstances:

  • Following non-selection at their first choice of centre, individuals who are allowed to play Winter Competition within two netball centres (eg, school team vs club team) may decide to trial for their alternative netball centre of their own free will.  Dispensation is not required.
  • If your affiliated Centre is not selecting their own team therefore you do not have the option to trial you may request Dispensation from your affiliated Centre to be released to trial for another Centre.  If wishing to request dispensation to be released to trial elsewhere you should approach your affiliated Centre to request a dispensation form.  Your Centre should then work with you to complete the necessary paperwork and provide a copy on your behalf to Netball Wellington Centre via email to gm@netballwellington.co.nz prior to our first trial date.

Trialists must trial for their relevant age group as at 1st January 2017.
Trialists may not trial for a higher age group unless dispensation has been specifically granted by the Netball Wellington Centre General Manager.  Year 9s are therefore expected to trial for the Year 9 team and shall not be considered for Under 15 trials.
