Dunedin Netball Development Opportunities for Players

Under 14 and Under 16 Development Programme

Dunedin Netball is running development programmes for our Under 14 and Under 16 players; age is at 1 January 2021. These will be six-week programmes running on Wednesday afternoons beginning the first week of term two. 

For more information around dates and times for these, please see the Development Programmes page under the Programmes tab.


Get Ready for the Season

These programmes are available for players in Years 5&6, and 7&8 and will run on Monday afternoons for the first four weeks of term two. 

For more information around dates and times for these, please see the Development Programmes page under the Programmes tab.


Year 7 & 8 Development Teams

At the Year 7 & 8 age-group Dunedin Netball believe it is valuable to give more opportunities for players to experience tournaments as well as still encourage the competitive traits of players. The rationale in this, alongside NNZ’s review is to keep more players in our great sport for longer.

Those who participate in the Year 7 & 8 Development Programmes are eligible for being in these teams.

No trials will be held, rather Dunedin Netball will group players based on what they think is of benefit to the players and their netball.

These teams will take part in two Zone tournaments, (Dunedin - August 8; Balclutha - August 22).

For more information around registration dates please see the Development Teams tab.
