Netball Connect

What is NetballConnect?


NetballConnect is the registration and competition management system introduced in 2021 by Netball Queensland. It replaces the previous MyNetball system. Importantly, it is now how we all now register to play.

The system provides an an online portal where you can access all information Netball Australia holds about you, including your personal details and competitions you've played in. 

You can update your personal details when logged into the system. However if you update personal contact information in NetballConnect, such as a change of contact information or email address, you also need to update this information by logging into the My Details section of Aspley's website.

All players and officials for this club are registered in NetballConnect.

When does Registration Open?



How much does it cost?

Player registration comprises of three key components:

  • Netball Queensland registration fee (includes insurance)
  • Downey Park Netball Association registration fee
  • ADNC registration fee

The cost of registration varies for each season and is approved by club members at the Annual General Meeting held in November. 


ADNC offers discounts to families with multiple players. We are also registered to participate in the Queensland Government's FairPlay program.

What age group will I be in?

The age groups for netball are based on the calendar year. 
Players are grouped into the following, based on the age they are turning as at December 31 in the current year:

NetSetGO: For players turning 8, 9 or 10 in the year they register.

Can I register my son to play?

According to Downey Park Netball Association by-laws, which align to the Netball Queensland policy, boys can be registered up to and including the year they turn 12 and they may play in a team provided that:
  1. not more than three boys are registered in the one team and
  2. not more than three boys are permitted to play for a team in any one game.
     

Can I cancel my registration?

If you cancel your registration prior to Teams Announcement Day, you will receive a refund of your fees, minus an administration fee from ADNC.

If you cancel your registration after Teams Announcement Day, you will only be refunded the ADNC component of your registration, minus an administration fee from ADNC. Unfortunately, once a player has been registered with Downey Park and Netball Queensland we are unable to recover your registration fee and therefore these components are not refundable.


Playing and training


When does the season run and for how long?

Generally, the Winter season fixtures run for 14 rounds.
Pre-season grading (for competitive teams only i.e. 11 years and above) is held in February.
Our NetSetGO clinic (7-10 years) is typically held over eight weeks from October to November.
You can visit the Calendar to see key dates and fixture rounds for the current season.

Where does ADNC train?

We train at the Craigslea State High School netball courts. The courts are accessible via Maundrell Terrace, Chermside West. 

Most teams train one night per week (Mondays - Thursdays).

When will my team train?

Team training times are determined by the team and their coach at Teams Announcement Day. This approach allows us to be flexible to suit the majority of the team members. 

What time will my team train?
The training times are determined based on court, player and coach availability. Generally our junior teams train after school/early evening and our Cadet, Intermediate and Senior players train after school/work hours at night.

The duration of training will depend on the player age - NetSetGO players (8-10 years) will typically train for one hour while the majority of other teams will train for up to 1.5 hours.

When does training start?

Training will usually start in the week following Teams Announcement Day.

Where are the weekly fixture games played?

Aspley Devils is part of the Downey Park Netball Association (DPNA). We play on Saturdays at Downey Park which is located at Northey Street, Windsor.  
Games are played each Saturday according to the current DPNA calendar. 

What time will my fixture game be?

Fixture times vary for each age group and the fixture draw is set by DPNA prior to the commencement of the Winter season - after all clubs have submitted their team nominations.

When available, the fixture draw will be published on the DPNA website and our ADNC website will feature a weekly draw on the home page.

Do I need a uniform?

Yes, we have an Aspley Devils dress that must be worn along with short white socks and black bike pants during games on Saturday. 

We have other optional uniform items available for purchase including training singlets, hoodies and track pants.
We also recommend that you have footwear suitable for netball.

How can I purchase my uniform?

You can order uniform items through the Online Store.
Once you have completed and paid for your order, you will need to present your receipt to our Uniform Convenor to collect your order. 

What should I wear to training?

At training players are encouraged to wear appropriate netball footwear and comfortable clothing.
Training singlets are available for players to purchase.
