New Players

Welcome!

For primary school players, our biggest catchment is Floreat Park Primary. Given this, we have players in our club from many different schools.

Quite often, a Primary School will have their own teams, but players are left to find another club for year 7 onwards.

We welcome new players from all schools, including anyone who wishes to change clubs.

Registration Process for New Players (Years 5 and Up)

Unlike other larger clubs, we do not run 'trials' to determine if you are eligible to be invited to play for us. Our goal is to place everyone in a team that suits their ability and preferred playing position. This can get tricky when we have to put the teams together, as we aim for teams of 9 players (or 10, depending on division). Sometimes we have to cut-off registration when we have hit the right number and other times we need to recruit to help fill the teams.

We do need to run a grading process, whereby we have independent graders observe the players in a series of short games.

You can learn more about the FFNC grading process here.


Following are the steps a New Player (year 5 and up) will need to take to join FFNC:

  • Complete the Expression of Interest form 
  • New Players will be invited to join the club when Season Registrations open in December (including PlayHQ registration)
  • All registered players from year 5 and up will need to attend Grading in February - registrations are closed during Grading period to control intake
  • After Grading, players are placed into a team - teams are not announced until all teams have enough players (we may need to do more recruiting and moving around of players)
  • Once teams are finalised, teams are announced to the players via email, around mid March

Uniforms can be ordered and paid for at the same time as Season Registration. You can learn more about our uniforms here.

If New Players miss the grading and team selection process, they can still register via the EOI/Waitlist form. We use this form to source extra players as required.

Registration Process for New Players (NSG - Years 2, 3 and 4)

Players in years 2, 3 and 4 will be playing in the NetSetGO (NSG) competition. For many families, they may not be thinking about Netball until the new year starts. We strongly urge you to register your expression of interest to play ASAP as we will invite you to register from this list once season registrations are open.


Then you will need to complete the season registration ASAP because we will fill the teams on a first-in-best-dressed basis.

Following are the steps a New NSG Player will need to take to join FFNC:

  • Complete the Expression of Interest form
  • New Players will be invited to join the club when Season Registrations open in early December (including PlayHQ registration)
  • Registration for NSG will be kept open through to early March (unless teams are at capacity prior to that)
  • Teams will be put together by the NSG Coordinator, taking into account friendship groups
  • Once teams are finalised, teams are announced to the players via email, mid March

Uniforms can be ordered and paid for at the same time as Season Registration. You can learn more about our uniforms here.

If New Players miss out on a place in a team, they can still register via the EOI/Waitlist form. We use this form to source extra players as required.
