The Secondary School netball competition at Auckland Netball draws school teams from the greater Auckland region with Premier grade right through to Year 9 and social grades. It is the largest school netball competition in New Zealand and teams benefit from a strong and diverse league across all grades.

All grades play on Saturday mornings at Auckland Netball Centre, St Johns with the first round at 8:00am and the final round at 12:10pm. Games are 40 minutes (4 x 10 minute quarters).





Umpires are provided for Premier 1 & 2 grades and the cost is built into the 2019 fees.

For all other grades, teams are responsible for umpiring their own game. As umpiring is the teams responsibility, a team not supplying an umpire for their game will play short to enable one member of the team to umpire.


Secondary School game days are Saturday mornings between 8:00am to 12:10pm.
Games are 40 minutes in duration (4 x 10 minute quarters).

  • Year 9 x 2 teams

Trials for Auckland Netball age group teams will be held in May and closer to that time nomination forms will be emailed to your school for completion.

Please note:

Players can play netball at more than one Netball Centre as long as those centres fall within the Northern Zone region. Players must be affiliated either by playing for School or Club to nominate to trial for an Auckland Netball representative age group team or trial for a National Championship team (NPC). If you intend on trialing for a representative team and Auckland is NOT your primary centre, please indicate what centre you will be trialing for. Those that trial for Auckland and are not selected can apply for a release to trial at another centre.
