Representative Netball

Associations

At Phoenix we are fortunate to be able to pariticpate in two different associations:
  • Downey Park Netball Association (DPNA) (winter season)
  • Queensland Catholic Netball Association (QCNA) (summer season - night netball)
both associations operate from Downey Park Netball and towards the end of the calendar year operate a Player Development Program (PDP) and commence their representative selection process.

Representative Selection

  • Both DPNA and QCNA rep teams will develop every player
  • Players can only play for one association, but can trial for both
  • Fees and uniform costs will be approximately the same for both
  • An A, B and development team will be chosen with a maximum of 30 players selected
  • Teams A, B & Development will attend a number of carnivals throughout the rep season.
  • Only teams A & B will attend states
  • Rep Training typically occurs on a Sunday afternoon, however may differ depending on other requirements.
