| Netball is alive and well at St Peter’s College. In 2011 eleven teams competed in the Eastern Southland Saturday Netball Competition.
Every year young stars arise and last year over thirty College players were selected for various representative teams and talent ID squads. Tori Peeters was selected in the New Zealand Secondary Schools Talent Identification Program and Emma Millard was named the Southland Player of the Year. Both were named as SISS talented players.
We have wonderfully talented and enthusiastic coaches but are always on the lookout for more and this year we would like to have team managers so if this sounds like you please contact us.
We encourage and support young umpires and if you would like to continue or begin let us know. Last year we had a lot of young umpires recognised with new and up skilled qualifications and SISS school squad selection. Not only is this a good way to give back to the sport but knowing and understanding the rules is extremely beneficial to the players own game.
Teams are selected in year groups for Year 7 – 10 students. Senior players have the option of being put in a social team together with their friends or trial for the College A, B and C teams. The selectors reserve the right to invite any junior students to the trials that they may be interested in looking at for these teams.
Pre-season training for Senior Players and Year Ten is on every Monday from 4-6pm at the College and trials will be held in mid-March. The College trails for Year 7 - 10 teams will be held in late February early March this year.
If you are interested in playing netball listen out for the sign-up which will happen over the next couple of weeks.
