Valleys Netball Club

Downey Park

Welcome to Valleys Netball Club - the club that runs on the Spirit of Achievement!

Being a member of Valleys with its long and successful history is a both a privilege and responsibility we share as players, coaches, umpires, volunteers and supporters. We are sincerely honoured as a club that our members choose to join with us to play and facilitate the game we love.

Valleys are a foundation member of the Downey Park Netball Association (DPNA) and began in 1974. Many of our members have achieved representation at association, state and national level as players, umpires and officials. Many others have learned to love the game of netball and have made it part of their on-going lifestyle. Valleys caters for all players across this spectrum.

Valleys netball training is on Thursday nights at the Downey Park Courts on Northy Street Windsor.

Valleys play games on Saturdays during the day at varied times depending on age groups and team numbers at Downey Park Netball Association (DPNA)

Non-competitive

7-10 years

Players aged 7-10yrs* can play in a modified, non-competitive fixture called NetSetGO.

Games are played each Saturday morning at Downey Park, Windsor.

* Players turning 8, 9 and 10 years play in the NetSetGO non-competitive fixtures.

* Players turning 7 (born 01 Jan-30 June 2015) AND in Grade 2 at school, are eligible to play in the NetSetGo 8/9yrs division.

* Children born on 01 July and 31 Dec 2015 are NOT eligible for NetSetGO Fixtures. We encourage players of this age to participate in the DPNA NetSetGO 8-week Skills Program. There will be 2 programs held at Downey Park during 2022. More information on this Program available at this link: (https://www.downeypark.com.au/wspNetSetGO5-10yrolds.aspx)


Junior Competitive

11-13 years

The first 3 years of competitive netball are split into each year born, Under 11, Under 12 and Under 13's.

Players must attend Valleys team gradings at the beginning of the year (starting January) to be place in a team. These gradings are usually done over 2-3 weeks in order for selectors to see consistent performance. This differs from NSG where teams where players are not required to trial and are not placed in teams based on level of skill. Please see our Trials Process Page for more details


Cadets & Inters Competitive

Cadets 14-15 years

Inters 16 years - 19 years

Our two middle age groups are Cadets (14-15 years) and Inters (16-19 years)

Players must attend Valleys team gradings at the beginning of the year (starting January) to be place in a team. These gradings are usually done over 2-3 weeks in order for selectors to see consistent performance.

Players are now in a mixed age group, the pool of players to be put into teams is larger and the competition for positions becomes more difficult. This means players that may have played with certain players in previous years may play with different players in different teams from Cadet age onwards.

Please see our Trials Process Page for more details


Opens Competitive

16 years - Open

Opens division for older players usually above 16

Players must attend Valleys team gradings at the beginning of the year (starting January) to be place in a team. These gradings are usually done over 2-3 weeks in order for selectors to see consistent performance.

As the players are in an open age group and anyone from usually 16+ (commonly 18+) can play in the Opens divisions, the pool of players to be put into teams is larger and the competition for positions becomes more difficult. This means players that may have played with certain players in previous years may play with different players in different teams from Inters age onwards.
