APS Sport

Girls entering year 7 and participating for the first time in APS sport are often uncertain of whether they can continue on with their netball at EBVNC.

It has been our experience that players are able to meet their APS obligations and continue playing with the club. Historically the girls may miss one or two games during the season – and that is absolutely fine.

To provide certainty to your daughter we suggest that you register with EBVNC and if you find that the APS commitments result in the need to take the season off from the club we will refund your fees. We are unable to refund the Netball Victoria Fees.

Registration Days

All Under 11, under 13 & under 15 players are expected to attend registration days to be part of a team. Players must have completed and paid their club registration prior to registration day. U/17 teams will remain the same in 2020 and players need to register by 8th of November 2019 please.

*** New players for all age groups please contact Emily Higgins ***

Registration days will take place at the following locations and times:

At the conclusion of the Registration Days, players who have paid their registration fees will be notified of their team grade and name.

EBVNC Registrations:


Grading each year is a multi-faceted process.

Facets of grading include, but are not limited to:

  • Grading trials will take place at the end of the season, or the beginning of the next season.

  • Players will be given a grading by their current coach.

  • A grading committee will observe and grade players throughout the 2nd half of the season.Areas that will be observed are:

  • agility and fitness,

  • footwork,

  • passing skills and ball control,

  • attacking and defensive skills,

  • court and spacial awareness,

  • coach-ability and attitude,

  • game knowledge and decision making.

Other aspects:

  • Consideration will be given to teams who wish to remain playing together as a team.

  • Consideration will be given to requests for friends to play together. This may require players of different levels playing in the lower level team.

  • Consideration will be given as to whether a player wishes to play competitively or socially.

After the above have been considered, we will endeavor to form teams of mostly equally skilled and equally competitive players.

NB- There is the possibility that these teams may change before the season commences

At the beginning of the new season, teams are nominated a grade in the SANDY/CDNA Competition. The initial rounds are then played at SANDY/CDNA with competition team grading reassessed at this point. The teams may be moved up or down to fit them with the best for competition for their skill.

Please keep in mind-We are a group of volunteers trying to ensure as many Netballers get to play the sport they love as possible. Sometimes, skill levels change as netballers grow and mature, sometimes teams need to be reworked, and sadly, sometimes we get it wrong......(we really don’t like that happening!)So please advise us if your child is unhappy with the team they have been placed in, and we will investigate the situation for you.No promises, but we really want everyone to love their teams and to love playing.But also remember, that while a change of team may not be initially preferred for your child, this may be the perfect opportunity for them to make new friends and learn different skills from a new coach and team mates. Sometimes, they start loving the game more when they are placed with others at the same skill level. But we are always here to discuss this further with you
