Netball and Information 2017

Registration for VAS Netball 2017 is now available via the link below. All players are welcome – no previous netball experience is required. Please take the time to read the following outline so that you understand the format that Auckland Netball operates and how we manage netball at our school. Registrations close on 8 March.


The cost per player is $100. This includes hire of the netball uniform and can be paid via the school shop at or at the School Office.

Game Times

All games are played at the AMI Auckland Netball Centre, St Johns. Year 3-5 teams play on Thursday afternoons, starting Thursday 11 May. Year 6 teams play on Tuesday afternoons, starting Tuesday 9 May.

Game Format
  • Year 3 and 4 teams play a modified five-a-side game on 2/3 of a netball court and players play all positions
  • Year 5 teams will play a new six-a-side format on the full court with players playing all positions
  • Year 6 teams play standard netball with designated positions

Further information can be found on the Auckland Netball web site

Team Allocations
  • Year 3 teams will be formed by our Specialist PE teacher
  • Year 4 – muster day on Friday 17 March
  • Year 5 – demonstration of new format on Monday 20 March and trial Wednesday 22 March
  • Year 6 – demonstration of seven-a-side format Friday 24 March and trials on 29 and 30 March

Further details re timing and location of these sessions are available on the school calendar. Please ensure that Year 4-6 players have appropriate PE gear and footwear.

Note that at this age children develop and change year to year so it is likely that teams will change. Players need to be prepared to play in different teams than they have played in previous years.


We rely on parent volunteers to coach and manage our teams. Please indicate on the registration form whether you would be able to provide assistance in either role throughout the season. If we are unable to locate coaches, some teams may not be able to compete and registration fees may have to be refunded.


Coaches arrange one weekly practice before or after school in consultation with the netball co-ordinators to achieve a workable timetable for all teams. Regular lunchtime practices cannot be accommodated due to space constraints. Coaches who wish to practice more than once per week will consult with parents of their players before making a decision.

Codes of Conduct

VAS has codes of conduct for players, coaches, managers and spectators to which all participants in the sport are expected to adhere, see

Pre-Season and Summer League

Pre-season netball training can be sourced from College Rifles or Auckland Netball and is at the discretion of parents. Some people also choose to participate in the ANC Summer League in Terms 1 and 4 which is organised by parents independent of the school.
