2017 Yr 9 Rep Information

PLEASE NOTE - 2017 is the first year Netball Wellington Centre will be running Year 9 trials.  We shall look to select one team of up to 12 players and dependent on depth of talent possibly a second team of up to 12 players.

It is strongly recommended that trialists be available to attend ALL trials.
Exemptions can be granted where a valid reason is provided in advance at the time

Trial dates and information shall be promoted via email distributed to previous trial attendees, 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:
To represent Netball Wellington Centre, players must:

* Be in Year 9 as at 1st January 2017
* Be currently be 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.

Trial conditions:
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 team/s in 2017 there will be no dispensations granted to trial for another centre.

The sole exception is for individuals who are allowed to play Winter Competition within two netball centres (eg, school team vs club team).  In this instance, following non-selection at their first choice of centre, a player may decide to trial for their alternative netball centre of their own free will.  Dispensation is not required.

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.

Year 9 trainings traditionally held Sunday morning and Tuesday evenings at the Hataitai Netball Courts.  If two teams selected there may be the possibility training will be moved to Wednesday evenings 6pm-8pm.  Some flexibility for change
possible and final decision will be advised as soon as able.
2017 Year 9 Training - Sunday 9.30am to 11.30am and Tuesdays 5.30pm to 7.30pm

All parents/guardians are invited to attend a Player & Parent Induction on first training day from 6.00pm to 6.20pm delivered by Netball Wellington Centre.  An opportunity for parents to meet Team Management and ask any questions while completing necessary consent forms.  Date yet to be set - parents will be advised after final team selection.

Following final team selection Team Manager/s will be in touch with all team members via email to confirm further details.  All team members are asked to please make every effort to attend trainings whether injured or otherwise as it is important to bond with the team and take on board team strategy you can still learn from the sideline.  Please remember to advise your Team Manager whether you are/are not available to attend trainings along with keeping them up to date on any injury notifications throughout the rep season.
