Playing at Ormond
Ormond Netball Club teams play in competitions in the following age groups:
11 and under mixed
13 and under mixed
15 and under mixed
15 and under female
17 and under female
Our players come from all over Melbourne to play for the Club – players do not need to live locally.
All team in the 11U and 13U are mixed teams and may consist of both females and males, with no restrictions. In 15U we have both female and mixed teams. There are no restriction on the number of females or males in the 15U mixed team, however only 3 boys can be on court at any one time, 1 per 3rd.
We welcome whole teams wanting to join the Club, as well as individuals looking to join a team.
Children aged 5 to 8 years can participate in the Net Set Go program run by a number of different associations, including Caulfield & District Netball Association (CDNA) at Duncan Mackinnon Reserve.
Net Set Go is a junior entry netball program designed to provide children with the best possible learning and playing experience to develop a positive introduction to netball, ensuring enjoyment and continued participation.
Participation in Net Set Go is highly encouraged but the Club will accept children from the age of 9 (or 8 if they are in Grade 3 at school) who have not taken part in the program.
Where we play
All our teams play in the CDNA competition at Duncan Mackinnon Reserve in Murrumbeena. Duncan Mackinnon Reserve is located on the corner of North Road and Murrumbeena Road.
There is parking at the courts, however this fills up very quickly on match days. Parking is also available in nearby side streets and on Murrumbeena and East Boundary Roads. There is also public transport near the courts, including the 630 bus.
We also enter teams in various external tournaments throughout the year. Tournaments are not compulsory but they do provide players with a great opportunity for additional match practice.
When we play
There are two seasons during the year. The first – the Autumn season – runs from February to June. The second – the Spring season – runs from July to November. There are no matches during school holidays.
The 11 and under competition takes place on Friday nights during the season. Match times are 5.00pm, 5.40pm and 6.20pm. All other competitions are run on Saturdays, between 8.00am and 12.30pm.
Training takes place each Tuesday or Wednesday for an hour. Training times are dependent on the coaches' availability and the availability of the training facilities. All training takes place at the netball courts at Duncan Mackinnon Reserve. Training may be cancelled due to weather. If this is the case, your coach or team manager will notify you in advance.
All players taking to the court must wear an Ormond Netball Club uniform. Uniforms are available to purchase through the club. Click here to visit our Uniform page.
