Each year Chatswood Rangers Junior Netball enters teams in the Northern Suburbs Netball Association (NSNA) competition. The competition is played during the winter months, with games commencing in April and running through until August/September. Matches and training are not scheduled during the school holidays. All matches and training are played at the Bicentennial Netball Courts at Small St Willoughby (adjacent to the Willoughby Leisure Centre).
The Junior Netball Program includes:
Net Set Go – for girls and boys aged 7 to 9 years old (and children turning 6 years old who are in Year 1 of school).
Net Set Go is an introductory program for children to develop basic netball skills whilst making new friends, developing their social skills and most importantly… having FUN !
Training for Net Set Go teams is at 5:30 – 6:30 pm on Wednesday evenings.
Matches for Net Set Go are played on Sunday mornings (times TBA)
Junior Netball – is for girls aged 10 to 15 years old.
No prior netball experience is necessary - everyone is welcome to register and play netball with Chatswood Rangers. Before the start of the winter competition, pre-season grading and training sessions will be held in February & March. This will allow for all girls to be placed into a team that is suitable for their skill level, and also provides an opportunity for the girls to learn the basics of the game and to get to know their coach and team mates before the actual competition commences.
Please note that all girls who register will be placed in a team.
Training is on Wednesday evenings – Ages 10 & 11 at 5:30 pm, and ages 12 to 15 at 6:30 pm
Matches for ages 10 to 12 years are played on Friday evenings and for ages 13 to 15 years are on Saturday mornings.
Chatswood Rangers Junior Netball plays in the Northern Suburbs Netball Association (NSNA) competition. For specific NSNA competition information/rules please refer to the NSNA website
Why play netball?
Netball is a fantastic game! Not only is it played throughout Australia and New Zealand but also many other parts of the world as diverse as Africa, Asia, the UK and Europe, North America and the Caribbean. It doesn’t matter what level of skill or fitness you have or whether or not you have played before. Did you know that netball is the team sport with the most number of participants in Australia, not just among females but for both genders?
Netball leads to improved fitness levels, encourages the learning of ball skills and helps to develop teamwork. Just as importantly players make new friends, improve their co-ordination and increase their self-confidence whilst having a lot of fun at the same time.
At Chatswood Rangers Junior Netball, we’re passionate about our daughters, their friends and other local children having a strong and viable local community sporting club to represent. We have girls from a large number of local primary and high schools playing for the club, including Artarmon, Chatswood, Lane Cove West, Mowbray, Roseville, Lindfield Learning Village and many others. Chatswood Rangers offers a friendly and more personal club, with the opportunity for the players to learn under great coaches and umpires in the game. As Rangers is a community rather than school club it gives the players the chance to meet girls from other schools and make many new friends.
Our main focus is grassroots participation and encouraging girls to enjoy a healthy lifestyle by participating in a team sport activity, particularly as they move into their teenage years. Chatswood Rangers is not only a friendly community club but we’re also very competitive on the court! We’re always proud of our players who make the representative teams and go on to win local awards, as several Rangers players and officials have done in recent years.

NetSetGo teams must provide their own over 16 years old umpire. It is recommended that two parents from each team volunteer to share this very rewarding role. NSG umpires must attend the Mature Red Robin Clinic held pre season at the NSNA courts. No previous experience is necessary!
Junior Umpires : Friday evening matches and Saturday mornings. Umpires must be turning 12 in 2022 and have passed the online exam. Junior umpires are paid on a sliding scale depending on their level. The first 3 games are free, as service to the club. Umpire money is paid at the end of season presentation event.
Junior Convenor: Corinne James mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
Senior Umpires : Saturday afternoon matches 12:45pm to 4:15pm. Senior umpires must be 16 years + or hold the National C Badge.
Convenor: Lyn Wells mailto:email@example.com
What is involved?
All umpires attain a 70% pass mark and keep the Netball Australia Rules of Netball online exam current. Please send the junior or senior umpire convenor copy of the certificate. We suggest having the rule book open on another tab to refer to. The exam is timed but you can attempt it as many times as you need to. The Rules of Netball Certificate is valid for 4 years and must be re-sat when expired.
It is strongly recommended to attend the NSNA Junior Red Robin Umpire Session when it is scheduled. The course is free but you must register on the NSNA website under the umpire tab.
New junior umpires will be rostered on one eligible game per week over 3 consecutive weeks, usually from term 2. They umpire various U10 or U11 teams on Friday nights, under the support of an experienced umpire mentor. After 3 weeks there may be an opportunity to be assessed by the NSNA umpire committee for the first ‘level’ which is Junior Level 3 (JL3). This level is only attained on a Friday night. Mentors must stay on the side line and they provide feedback in the quarter time intervals.
*Note, limited numbers of U12 age group umpires can be accepted in 2022
On Game Day:
- Arrive at least 10 minutes before the start of the game
- Print your name clearly on the umpire sign on sheet before the match
- Check side lines for obstacles, you should not have to go onto the court to avoid drink bottles/bags/spectators
- Introduce yourself to the other umpire – you guys are a team!
- Check nails, jewellery, no elastic bands or bracelets etc – note piercings must be removed and cannot be covered by tape.
- Captains must do the toss and advise you of the outcome
- At the end of each quarter, meet the other umpire in the middle of the court or talk with your mentor – also on the court.
The key things for a new umpire are loud and clear voice, loud and clear whistle, decisive calls, (it doesn’t matter if they are not quite the right calls), keeping up with the game (running down the sideline and round the base line).
Umpire development forms a big part of being an umpire and the girls really enjoy the challenge to see if they can get levelled at least once in the season. Umpiring is a fabulous way for a player to develop an understanding of the rules and as such be better players themselves. There are umpire coaching opportunities throughout the season, we are lucky to have the support of very experienced National C badge umpires to guide our girls.
If we don’t have one of the required grades ourselves we need to borrow matches from other clubs who are also trying to level their umpires. Please be patient as it is not always possible to borrow other club's matches. Sometimes borrowed matches for levelling are unpaid as different clubs have different payment structures and some don’t pay at all. Junior levels are attained by players U15 and below. Senior levels by players 16 and over playing in senior grades.
JL2 will need to have experience and be assessed on 13C/14D/15D and above grade matches. It is not necessary to wear whites for this level. This level is attained on Saturday morning matches only.
JL1 must wear whites and umpire 12A/13A/14C/15C.
National C Badge
Juniors need to umpire 14A or 15A. Sunday umpiring of a Rep Carnival or several is required to gain the required high level match experience, as well as completing the online Foundation Umpire Course. Foundation is a paid course on MyNetball and contains five modules to complete. Senior umpires who want to attain National C badge must also attend a rep carnival and are assessed on A3/A4/B1/B2 level.
It is possible to attain more than one level in one season if we get the required matches and opportunities and depending on the availability of the umpire and mentors. We are also asked to help other clubs from time to time. Any court time is valuable experience and the all the club umpire convenors at NSNA work very closely together supporting each other to have matches covered. Remember umpires are UNBIASED so are expected umpire any team to the same standard as they would their own club.
No umpire = match forfeit!
Please contact one of the convenors if you have any questions or would like to join the roster.
