2019 Grading

Cannon Hill Stars Netball Club grades all players from 10 years and up.  This is to ensure all the girls have the best possible experience playing netball.  Grading enable us to place your daughter in a team with girls of similar abilities who play against other teams of similar abilities.

We feel it is important to their enjoyment of the game that they are given the opportunity to grow and improve with like ability players. We understand that it can be a difficult process, and that past friendship groups may not be in the same team. We have found that the children respond well to making new friends and adapt very quickly to new groups. We encourage you to see it as an opportunity to expand friendship circles.  Remember this is only a very small portion of their day!

The club has a strong grading process that allows the children to be assessed over a number of weeks.  The first step in the grading process is held over the weekend of 9th and 10th February at our courts. Independent, experienced graders assess each girl during these sessions. Players will then continue to train on Thursday nights in squad formations as grading continues. Teams will not be named until the committee is satisfied the grading process is completed.

Grading for all players 10 years and up will be held:

10yrs – 8am-9.30am (Sat 9th Feb)
12 yrs – 9am-10.30am (Sat 9th Feb)
