Our teams compete in the Altona Netball Association Saturday Competition. Games are held at the Altona Sports Centre. The winter season runs from April to September and the Summer season October to March. Games are not played during school holidays. Age group categories include U9, U11, U13, U15 and U17. Training is held either at the Williamstown High School Gym on the corner of Pasco Street and Melbourne Rd, Williamstown, or the Williamstown High School Gym on the Bayside Campus, Bayview Street, Williamstown, on a Monday or Friday afternoon.
In light of Covid 19, NetSetGo is paused until further notice. Hopefully we will be up and running again soon!
The 2020 season will begin Friday 8th February to 15th September (breaking for school holidays), 3.45 - 4.30pm, on the Williamstown High School, Bayview Street outside courts.

It is the ideal program to introduce children aged from 5 to 10 years to netball. Please contact us for more information, or head on over to the NetSetGo website.
We hope you are safe and well and are excited at the prospect of getting life back on an even keel!
Understanding the transition back to physical learning at school is the biggest priority right now, we appreciate returning to sport will be a fast follower and that you are all missing netball.
To this end, we met last night to determine the best course of action for our Club, based on the latest guidelines from Netball Victoria that came into effect this week. These guidelines state use of outdoor courts only, 1.5m physical distancing, stringent hygiene controls around ball use and no use of bibs. Please refer to the latest Netball Victoria Covid19 Guidelines for reference.
Additionally, Premier Andrews has extended the State of Emergency until 21 June and we have not received any guidance from Altona Netball Association on when they expect to resume the season.
In light of these factors, and most importantly, in the best interests of safety and care for our players, we have decided to hold off on recommencing training until after the Term 2 school holidays at the earliest.
After careful consideration, we have set a date of 22 June to reassess in line with updated guidance from the Victorian Government, Netball Victoria and Altona Netball Association, and until we have this clarity, we will not be confirming return to training plans or releasing team lists.
