Helena Hornets Netball Club encourages fun, fitness and friendship for girls and boys aged 6 to 18, although there are some restrictions on boys’ competitions.
Helena Hornets teams participate in the Swan Districts Netball Association’s Saturday winter competition during Terms Two and Three and the Tuesday evening spring competition in Term Four. There is no netball during Term One. All games are played at the Association’s courts in Gray Drive, Midvale.
Registrations are now open for the 2020 Winter Season for players from Pre-primary to Year 12. Click on the registration notice to read more about the competition or go to the Hornets website to register before 14 March.
Young players are able to learn the game by participating in Net-Set-Go Skills for Year 2 and Net-Set-Go Competition for Years 3-4, before moving to the Juniors’ competition for Years 5-12.
From Year 3 each team playing in the winter competition usually trains once a week at either the Darlington Campus or Glen Forrest Campus and play a game on Saturday. The spring competition is more casual and often teams choose not to train.
Junior teams wear the College sports uniform, while Years 7-9 wear the Helena Hornets skirt and top and Year 10-12 wear a dress. A Helena Hornets club jacket is optional. The Association has a strict dress code, which requires all Helena Hornets teams to wear the College sports ‘hoop’ socks.
As players progress through the club they are encouraged to develop their skills as umpires through the Green Shirt programme. Older players interested in coaching are also supported and mentored by club members.
Helena Hornets is a member of the Helena College Sporting and Cultural Association. Although associated with the College, Helena Hornets is run entirely by volunteers (ie players’ parents), including coaches and managers.
The club hosts an annual Sausage Sizzle fundraiser at the Midvale courts during the winter competition, as well as an end-of-season function.
