Club Trial Overview:

Jaguars Grading Trial Information:

The first part of the trial consists of individual assessment of netball skills, knowledge and positional understanding on court. The second component of the trial involves the initial formulation of potential teams and combinations. 


Through the registration process, Jaguars request information from the player regarding preferred playing positions and playing history. This information is used to assign playing positions for grading trial games. 


When players are graded, individual player skill set and netball knowledge is assessed, however, graders must similarly ensure teams are appropriately positionally balanced. 


The Grading Committee uses the following criteria to assess each individual player during the trials. The level of proficiency in these skills is adjusted relative to the age of the player. 


-       Ball Skills:

-    Good basic ball handling skills under pressure

-    Good pass selection under pressure

-    Execution, accuracy and placement of the ball

-    Understanding of attacking structures (preliminary movements, outside foot landing, use of outside/inside pivots, vision through court, fakes/baulks, connections with other attacking players, creative use of space)

-    Accuracy of shot (shooting positions only) 

-    Understanding of circle movement and appropriate circle rotations (shooting positions only)


-       Court Awareness and Strategy:

Attendance at all Winter grading and trials is mandatory for all players turning 10 years and older. 


Absent:

If a player is absent from grading, the Grading Committee will use information and feedback received from previous coaches, and the player will be subsequently paper-graded into a team based on this feedback. 


Grading Feedback:

If players would like to request feedback on their final team placement, this request must be completed within 3 days of team announcements. This request must be in writing, and emailed to the Northside Jaguars Club President & Club coaching convenor president@northsidejaguars.com and coaching@northsidejaguars.com

Please note, friend requests cannot be guaranteed, however, the Grading Committee will take all requests into consideration when formulating final teams.

Our experienced coaches and members who run the trials are there to support and help each player! 
If you are new to netball or unsure about positioning or where to go, ask any Northside Jaguar trials assistant and we will happily help you get started and feel confident trialling and playing!
