Sports Draws



We have just been advised that the start date for basketball has been pushed out another week.

Start date now:
9+ Primary Basketball – Tuesday 10 March
Miniball – Wednesday 11 March

Draws will be available here as soon as they come to hand.


Year 7/Year 8 development teams (Reps) will be having their first trial on Sunday 22 March at 4pm sharp.  These will be held at the netball courts.  Capable Year 6’s are able to trial for the Year 7 team, but Year 7’s cannot trial for the Year 8 team.



This year for junior netball, the Year 7 and 8 (plus some capable Year 6’s) will be playing in mixed teams for the ‘A Grade”.  This is to hopefully create an even and enjoyable competition for these players.

In preparation for the season, and for development team selection, Dannevirke Netball Centre are offering some pre-season trainings for this group of players.  These sessions will be held at the Dannevirke netball courts on Wednesday afternoons between 3.45pm and 4.45pm.  They will focus on the fundamental skills of netball, teamwork, drills and fitness.  The dates for these trainings will be the 411 and 18 of March 2020.  Following this, the initial trial for the Year 7 and Year 8 Development teams (Reps) will be held on Sunday 22 March.

Like always, DNC needs the support of caregivers/community members to come forward to coach and manage these teams.  If you, or someone you know is interested in coaching or managing, please contact Richard Harrison-Kamura at  for further information and an application form.

To register for the pre-season training sessions, please forward your child’s name, school, school year and grade played last year to Michelle Mitchell or by texting 0272141974.
