Representative Programme

    Auckland Netball has a fantastic Representative Programme that has achieved consistent success over many years. Along with high placings achieved at tournaments in both 2018 and 2019, we were also thrilled with feedback from players and parents reporting quality experiences and high satisfaction with coaching, management professionalism, and their personal growth throughout the season.

    We are ever grateful for the excellent team of coaches, managers, selectors, umpires, cooks, and coach mentors whose enthusiasm to nurture young players and showcase the best of Auckland Netball is second to none.

    Changes to the Netball NZ Domestics Events in 2020 mean changes to the age-group teams offered. Auckland Netball’s 2020 Representative Programme will involve:

    • Open team to attend the NNZ Open Championships in September (New Plymouth)
    • Under 18-1 and Under 18-2 teams to attend the NNZ U18 Champs in July (Rotorua)
    • Under 16-1 and Under 16-2 teams to attend the North Island Junior Championships (New Plymouth
    • Under 16-3 team plus 3x Year 9 teams to attend an U16/Y9 Representative Camp here at Auckland Netball with guest coaches and speakers. (Auckland)

    In addition, all teams will play in at least three local Representative tournaments and matches prior to the fixtures above. Key dates will be available early in 2020.

    We look forward to another fantastic season ahead!
