WINTER 2024  PLAYER REGISTRATION FORM

 

The purpose of this registration is for those intending to play netball for Westbourne Park Uniting Church Netball Club (WPUCNC) for the upcoming Winter 2024.  As in previous years WPUCNC will cap the number of winter teams to 50.

 

WPUCNC is not holding trials for the winter 2024 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.

 

Age groups for winter 2024 are based on the player’s year of birth as outline below:

  • 8&u – 2016, 2017
  • 9&u – 2015
  • 11&u – 2013, 2014

Training is compulsory for all WPUCNC players during the winter season.  The majority of WPUCNC 13&u through to Open and some high division 11&u teams train on Wednesday nights at Association Courts.  Players in 8&u, 9&u and low division 11&u teams will train at the Goodwood Rd indoor court either on the Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday subject to the availability of their coach.
