The purpose of this registration is for those intending to play netball for Westbourne Park Uniting Church Netball Club (WPUCNC) for the upcoming Winter 2023. As in previous years WPUCNC will cap the number of winter teams to 50.
WPUCNC is not holding trials for the winter 2023 season. Team placements will be done by a paper trial, based on Coach’s feedback forms and player’s previous netball history. Considerations may be given to friendship grouping as requested on this form, in these cases players shall be graded on the ability of the lower division player. If your child would like to play with a friend or be considered for another team, please mark clearly on registration and we will do our best to accommodate this.
