Winter Season

Hallett Cove Netball Club is affiliated with the South Australian Uniting Church Netball Association (SAUCNA) and winter season is the main focus of the year.

Registration for winter season takes place following the AGM each year. This usually occurs early in February.
Only players who register at the registration session are guaranteed positions in a team. Late registrations are only accepted if there are vacancies within the teams.

Training for the winter season usually begins early in March on a Tuesday night at our home courts located adjacent to the Cove Sports and Community Club, Oval Road, Hallett Cove.
Initially all players train together as a squad within each age group. About three weeks of squad training will take place before players are placed into individual teams and coaches appointed. Training for all teams then continues throughout the season on Tuesday nights.

Junior Teams - Up to an including 15 & Under
Play home and away games on Saturday afternoons. Court locations for away games depend on the teams playing within the grade.
Matches are played at 12:30pm, 2:00pm or 3:30pm.

Open and 17 & Under Teams
Play on Saturday afternoons at the SAUCNA courts at the corner of Greenhill Road and Anzac Highway.
Matches are played at 12:30pm, 2:00pm and 3:30pm and each grade can have a combination of time slots.

All players are required to wear the registered club uniform - navy bodysuit with pink and white swirls.

Squad Training

Listed below are the dates and times of squad training for each age group.
Due to the additional nights being played for summer netball and the number of our players and committee members involved, we have had to schedule the majority of our squad training sessions on a Sunday. We understand that this may cause some inconveniences, however this will only be for two weeks before training returns to Tuesday nights.

It is important that all players make every effort to attend the squad training as it is from these sessions that players are placed into teams. Player's lack of attendance may impact upon the team they are placed in.
