Spring Competition is a less structured netball competition run over the spring season.  It is played in the late afternoons /nights.

The junior competition (age 9-12) is run at Canoon Road Complex, South Turramurra and the rest of the competition is run over 4 nights at Lofberg Complex, West Pymble.

There is unfortunately no Spring Competition for children under 9 (a child must be turning 9 before 31 December 2018 to play in the Spring Competition).

The Spring Competition operates differently from the Winter competition.  There is no grading or weekly team practice.

Team members have to register as a team.  Ideally, a person, probably the Team Manager will take responsibility for getting a team together and ensuring they register by Friday 17 August 2018.  A team must have a minimum of 8 players and a maximum of 12 to register.  Once the team is confirmed the team manager must email the team list along with the Manager’s contact details to registrar@stivesnetball.com.au and vicepresident@stivesnetball.com.au

Following are the details of the upcoming Spring Competition:
