Our philosophy is to ensure that all players achieve a sense of worth and value from playing netball, regardless of age or grade.
The club provides teams for players aged 7 years through to Masters (35 years +). Boys aged 7 to 12 years of age are welcome to play. Players can learn to umpire from the age of 12 yrs and we encourage coaching from the age of 16 yrs and up. We welcome parent coaches, including fathers and provide courses and mentoring for the less experienced to build quality coaching for all teams. All coaches are volunteers. Quality coaching is a focal point for our club, as we believe players can only reach their full potential with high level coaching and thus encourage all to attend courses and build knowledge.
Games are played on Saturdays at the Canoon Road Courts, South Turramurra for ages 9 years and up, and at the Lofberg Road Courts, West Pymble for – NetSetGo! (7 & 8 year olds) teams. Games are played at the same timeslot each week during the season.
There is also a NetSetGo! program for 5, 6 year olds and 7 year old players who are new to the game. This program is run weekly on a Friday afternoon at Lofberg Road.
The St Ives Netball Club is part of the Ku-ring-gai Netball Association (KNA). KNA is recognised as one of the leading sports associations on the North Shore. Its membership include 18 clubs, comprising of over 3,600 members drawn from the Ku-ring-gai /Hornsby region.
