Saints United Netball Trials                                     Y7A, Y7B, Y8A and Y8B 2019


Venue:  Minogue Park 

            Moore Street, Hamilton 

Date:    Saturday 29th February 2020  

Time:    Y7 8am 

             Y8 10am 


Year 7 and 8 students enrolled at St Joseph’s, St Peter Chanel, Marian, St Pius and St Columba’s Catholic schools are invited to trial for these Saints United teams. The teams are expected to play competitive netball in a higher grade than what individual school teams can offer.


Each Saints team will have a squad of approx 9 players chosen at trials by a trio of independent selectors.  The selection policy will be available at trials, and selections will be final. 


Players who are not selected, or who do not trial, will still play netball under the Saints United umbrella. Every Y7/8 student who wants to play netball will do so.  After trials, our individual schools will make school based teams as usual, combining our players together only if required to ensure numbers. 


We urge and encourage all eligible players to attend trials. Trials offer our netballers significant participation based experience and learning, and provide valuable preparation for high school netball.


All players must trial in appropriate sporting mufti.  No representative netball (or other rep sport) shirts are to be worn, and hair and fingernails must be in accordance with netball rules.


Practice days, times and locations for all Saints United teams will be determined by coaching availability. The cost per Saints United player will be $65 TBC.  Each Saints team will require a coach, manager and umpire, so parents of trialists are asked to consider if/how they could offer assistance should their child be selected. 


In addition, some parental assistance with trials may be required. Please indicate on the registration form if you can help on the day.


Registrations close on 2pm Wed 27th Feb.
