NORTHCROSS NETBALL TEAMS 2023
Thank you for your patience as we worked through allocating 100 Year 8 students and 139 Year 7 students into the team that best fits them. Below is the link to the team lists.
As always, we go through a very thorough selection process to finalise our teams and players will be placed in a team that our selectors have determined best suits their ability and experience. While inevitably there will be some movement of players, both up and down teams, it is important to remember that this movement can be a result of the following factors:
The position your child plays. As we can’t have a team made up of all shooters (for example), some stronger players may be named in teams that are of a lower ability. This is a direct result of the number of players who play that position.
New players who didn’t play last year can also create movement for other players, especially if they are placed in a higher team, resulting in other players moving down to a lower team.
Individual development and growth over the summer months. If individual players have put in an extra effort and completed additional training over the holiday, this can definitely show during trials, resulting in higher performance on the court and some movement between teams.
We understand that some students will have questions regarding the trial process and/or their team selection – if your child does, please ask them to see me when we are back at school.
As per our Sports Selection Policy, no correspondence regarding team selection will be entered into. If you wish to view it, please refer to our school website.
A number of teams require either a Coach or a Manager or both - if you are keen to fill this role for your child's team, please emailas soon as possible please.

To register your child for Netball this year, you will need to go to the NX Online Shop (you can find the link on the Northcross Website). A $50 deposit will be required with registration. This deposit is non-refundable. Once teams have been formed, the remainder of the balance will be required to be paid on the Online Shop. The date for this payment is still to be confirmed but will be in the middle of Term 2.Registrations close on Monday 13th February - 3pm.
All students who register, will be placed in a team, however in order to ensure your child has been placed in the team that is right for them, trials will take place. The trials will be held at Northcross during the school day, the players being released periodically from their classes when called. Although we appreciate the support from parents, due to the format of the trials it is advised that parents do not attend.
Trials will take place on Friday 17 February (Year 8’s) & Friday 24 February (Year 7’s) from 9am – 3pm; Friday 3 March will be used as a Callback day from 9am - 3pm.
Coaches, Managers and Umpires
Each team will need a coach and manager. If we cannot get enough coaches we will have to reduce the number of teams and unfortunately some children will miss out on playing. If you are interested in being a coach or manager for Netball, please indicate this on registration.
All Coaches and Managers are required to be police vetted by Northcross. If you are keen to take on one of these roles and have not yet been police vetted by our school, please email and we will send you through the relevant forms to fill out.
If you have any questions or queries regarding Northcross Netball, please email
Thank you for your support in netball. We look forward to a full season of Netball in 2023.
