Trials for netball take place towards the end of February and at the beginning of March. Dates will be advertised in the school daily notices. Senior students are welcome to organise their own "self-managing" team which will be entered in a grade appropriate to the players' ability (students intending to play in a self-managing team do not have to attend trials).
All teams play at the Auckland Netball Centre, Alison Ferguson Drive, Mt Wellington, on Saturday mornings between 8.30am and 12.30pm. The season will start the 11th May with no play on the Saturday of Queen's Birthday weekend (1st June) or of the Term 2 holidays (13th, 20th or 27th July).
