About us
The St Thomas Netball Club is a community based club that incorporates a number of local primary and secondary schools. We started in 1982 by a few like-minded parents who wanted their kids to play netball. To this day, the club continues to be operated by volunteer parents. We are all striving to work together for the common good of all our players, umpires and coaches and your respect of this is paramount to our continued growth.

Our club philosophy is all about promoting, developing and encouraging the enjoyment of netball.

We currently have 21 teams at various ages and ability levels. We also recruit and develop our own coaching and umpiring panel. We warmly welcome both boys and girls to our teams, who play in the Whitehorse Netball Association (WNA) competitions at Sportlink in Vermont South. Three of our teams play GO (modified netball with the focus on fun and teamwork) on Monday evenings, whilst the other 18 teams compete in one of the biggest netball competitions on a Saturday.

All of our Saturday teams are graded, based on their ability and age. This process allows ALL players to develop at their own pace which ultimately gives them the opportunity to grow and shine.

The aim is for each player to contribute equally, while being challenged to improve. Each age group is looked at for grading and ranked into their teams based on skill, attitude and commitment, with an overall aim of having balanced teams on court.

The Club also runs Net Set Go, which is an introductory skills based program on Saturday mornings in Terms 3 and 4 at St Thomas’s School playing courts. It is open for grade two girls and boys.

In summary, as players, they will grow from the change within team dynamics, branching out, learning from new team mates, making new friendships – these are all positive ways in which we can build our club together. As parents, we need your continued positivity, encouragement and understanding as we all develop, regardless of the results of the games.

To all our volunteers, including Committee Members, Coaches, Umpires and Team Managers, we thank you for your valuable time and commitment to St Thomas Netball Club as we all work together by promoting, developing and encouraging the enjoyment of netball!
