FAQ

When do you train? We train at Sportlink in Vermont South on Wednesday evenings. U11s and U13s train at 5pm; U15s and U17s train at 6pm on the outdoor courts. There is no training commitment for Open players.

Where do you play? Highvale NC plays in the Waverley City Netball Association at the Waverley Netball Centre, Jells Park, Wheelers Hill. Games are played both indoors and outdoors.

How do I register? We are usually only able to take registrations at the beginning of each season and depending on club numbers. Submit an expression of interest to highvalenetball@gmail.com before registering using our online Registration Form.

What should I expect on game day? All players should plan to arrive 30 minutes before their scheduled game time to allow for adequate warm-ups and team organisation. Each game runs for 40 minutes (4 ten minute quarters) with a 3 minute half time.

What do I need to bring to training and on competition day? Make sure you bring a bottle of water to all training and games. Players are also responsible for any personal medication such as asthma puffers. Please also ensure that the correct uniform is worn.

What uniform do I need to wear? For competition, U/11 and U/13 teams wear yellow polo tops and bottle green skirts. Sports briefs must be worn under skirts. U/15, U/17 and Open age groups wear Highvale lyrca dresses. At training, casual, comfortable sporting attire should be worn.

All players are expected to wear appropriate supportive, laced and comfortable sport footwear to training and games.

As a safety precaution, please also ensure that fingernails are cut short and smooth and that all jewellery is removed or covered by tape for both training and games.

Contact our uniform coordinators to order uniforms.

What should I do if I can’t come to training or a game? Notify your coach as soon as possible if you are unable to play or train to ensure a replacement can be found.

What is the club’s wet weather policy for training? Netball includes a winter season and players need to practise in all weather conditions. Unless the weather is particularly bad, training will still take place. If you are unsure, contact your coach or a committee member.

Please note, all players must be present at Saturday games to avoid forfeit even in poor weather.
