Eligibility criteria
To represent Netball Wellington Centre, players must:

  • in Year 9, aged Under 15, Under 17, Under 19 or Over 19 as at the 1st of January 2017
  • currently be registered, fully financial (all prior fees paid) and actively playing for a current school or club affiliated to our Netball Wellington Centre Winter Competition played at the ASB Sports Centre or Hataitai Netball Courts.
  • Players must trial for their affiliated netball centre in the first instance.  If following non-selection players wish to make themselves available to trial for an alternative netball centre, dispensation must be granted from your existing netball centre before being allowed to trial/play for Netball Wellington Centre.
  • In the instance where your affiliated netball centre decides not to enter its own age grade team (Year 9, U15, U17, U19 or Open Grade (19+)), players are then permitted to trial for Netball Wellington Centre provided they first gain dispensation from their affiliated centre.  Please email ndo@netballwellington.co.nz to discuss further.  Please find a dispensation form attached at the bottom of this page - one for those wishing to be released from NWC to trial for another Centre and one for players affiliated to other Centres wishing to be considered for NWC trials.

PLEASE NOTE: Trialists must trial for their relevant age group as at 1st January 2017.  You 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.

You'll find a list of key commitments below for each age group for the upcoming 2017 Representative season.  It is important that you please take care to consider your availability for each commitment listed below prior to submitting your nomination form to trial.  As part of successful selection you MUST be available to attend ALL training and tournament dates unless special exemption is granted by Netball Wellington Centre's General Manager.

It is recommended that trialists make themselves available and commit to attending all trial dates to ensure a fair and equal selection process.  In special circumstances a dispensation may be granted to those who provide a valid reason for missing one or more trials.  Please be sure to indicate any absences clearly upon registration so as not to unfairly disadvantage yourself.  If in doubt email ndo@netballwellington.co.nz for clarification.
