A new competition is about to launch for Boys Netball!
West Coast Men’s & Mixed Netball Association is very excited to be able to launch their Future Thunder Pathway (FTP) program. The program aims to fill the gap between 12&U (Net Set Go) participants and the 17&U Thunder boys team.
Details of the program are still being finalized, but the West Coast Men’s & Mixed Netball Association is able to confirm some limited details below, with games being played on Friday nights;
Location: Gold Netball Centre (and/or Matthews Netball Centre)
Division/s: 13&U boys, 15&U boys
Round 1: 4th of February 2022
Bye Weekend: 4th of March 2022 (Labour day Long weekend)
(Final) Round 7: 25th of March 2022
Preliminary Final: (1v4, 2v3): 1st of April 2022
Grand Final: 8th of April 2022
Coach: Minimum (current) Development accreditation
Athletes: 9 (minimum) – 12 (maximum) per team
WCMMNA is encouraging all metropolitan-based associations to get involved and enter as many teams as possible into the two divisions. The association will have a registration window for association-based teams and encourages any individuals interested in playing to get in touch with their local association. Following this, there may be the opportunity for individuals to register interest and be directed to an association seeking athletes. Finally, non-association based registrations will be accepted, provided the minimum requirements above are met. Looking ahead, the program has the ability to expand the number of divisions and age groups, based on number of team entries.

12-15yrs BOYS COMPETITION SATURDAY
After running this competition for the last 3 years, KDNA are hoping to expand the Boys Competition again and are opening it up by sending out invitations to other Associations to play a Home & Away format.
This would mean that potentially teams may play on a Saturday at Kalamunda / Wanneroo / Belmont / Southern Districts and maybe elsewhere on a rotational basis. The more teams we have from KDNA, the more games will be home games.
Timeslots will vary and may be played on any afternoon game from noon onwards.
Nothing is set in place yet, and we would like your interest to guide us on what we will be able to offer you in the 2021 season.
Currently (as of the start of May), we do not have enough teams to run a competition. We have decided to continue to drive the Boys Competion and hope to be able to offer a shorter 6 week season with reduced fees.
If you are a individual player that does not have a team and wants to participate or a team that does not have full numbers of players, please contact Sonja Sullivan on 0438 181 638 and she will assist with placing or finding players for teams where possible.
If you have a complete Team that you wish to nominate and join the Association, please contact the KDNA office via firstname.lastname@example.org or 08 9291 8763
