It is essential to have a clear selection process and policy in place for your school or club.
A well-defined selection process ensures:
- the process is clear and transparent
- the process can be easily communicated
- players understand what they must do to be selected
- provision of an objective document for player selection
Here are examples of selection policies:
- Diocesan School for Girls: 2018 Netball Selection Policy
- Southern Netball Club: Selection-Policy
- Wellington East Netball Club: Selection-policy

We hope your trials go well and wish you all the best for the season ahead!
School and club trials typically involve a minimum of two selectors per age-group, across two-three different trial days per age-group. Most schools and clubs utilise the services of volunteer selectors, however there is a list of independent selectors below if required.
Auckland Netball Community SelectorsAuckland Netball is fortunate to have a group of community netball selectors who can provide an experienced and neutral perspective for your club or school netball trials. These individuals are reliable, knowledgeable and actively involved across different playing levels.
Due to these selectors operating as independent personnel, schools and clubs are responsible for contacting, confirming availability and coordinating payment with selectors directly. Our recommended rate is $50 per two-hour trial including observing game play and providing the school/club with a ranked spreadsheet for the school/club to then create teams from. *Please note, selector’s availability is a guideline only and is subject to change.
