Toowoomba's Rep Netball

Toowoomba Netball Association (TNA) consider representative netball to be a progression in
a player's development. It provides the opportunity for players to further learn the importance
of teamwork; aid in building self-confidence through development of skills; provide another
path to develop friendships; and learn about the commitment and effort required to be
successful. It is part of the pathway towards playing at the highest standard attainable.

Trials

Trials for our GBNL, State Age and Inter-District teams are generally conducted during terms 3 or 4 and consist of 2 phases.

  • Phase one – Squad Selections: Conducted over two or three sessions. TNA “lead coaches” selecting in phase one will not include coaches assigned to that age group. A squad of up to 30 players deemed of standard will be selected for a State Age squad. There is no limit applied to the number of players of standard selected for the Inter-district squad

  • Phase two – Team Selections: Conducted over two or three sessions. Selectors in phase two will include the coaches assigned to that age group along with a lead coach within TNA from outside that age group. For the State Age squad phase two will include fitness testing delivered by the TNA fitness provider.

Carnivals

We see carnivals as a fantastic and crucial opportunity to facilitate team bonding, build team cohesion and to practice what we've been training towards in the pre season.

GBNL
We generally attend 1-2 day carnivals targeted at GBNL level competition

State Age (Jnr & Snr):
We generally attend at least 3 day carnivals in Brisbane in the lead up to the main State Age event.

Inter-district:
The competition includes two grading carnivals followed by two divisional carnivals and a finals series played at the 5th carnival at the completion of the divisional rounds.This usually involves a carnival in Roma where families are encouraged to stay overnight.
