Training Canterbury Netball is a training club, with the expectation that Year 4 to 9 participate in 1 hour training sessions weekly and Year 10 to Open attend monthly specialist sessions. Training occurs on Monday or Wednesday afternoons at Boroondara Netball Centre. Times depend on year level, court and coach availability, however the younger teams will start at 4pm and senior teams 5pm. All training starts mid February 2024. Grading Our Year 4 teams are not graded and play in school and friendship groups while developing knowledge of teamwork and netball rules. The aim of grading Yr 5 to 9 is to form teams which have a balanced group of players of similar ability across all playing positions. We select teams to ensure the best chance of success, the greatest level of enjoyment and the highest potential for individual player development during each season. The process is also influenced by the number of registered players in any particular season or age group. Games Matches are played on Saturdays at Macleay Park, Belmore Road, Balwyn. Winter seasons starts late Term 1 (for 1 or 2 matches) and the remainder of the season in Term 2 & 3. Year 4's play Fridays after school for the same duration. Expression of Interest If you are interested in joining Canterbury Netball Club please fill out the Contact Us form All new players are asked to attend a training session to meet fellow players and coaches. Canterbury Netball maintains a wait list of players if there are not enough registrations to create a full team.
