Before we started RISE Netball Club, we were constantly being told by clubs that it was character building for teams to be beaten/thrashed regularly. We understand that we develop resilience when we face challenges BUT Netball Australia's focus is for kids to get in the game and stay in the game. Being placed in the right grade within a team where team mates are of similar skills and drive means that girls learn to love netball and strive to be all they can be for their team and for themselves. 


So we made our own netball club to support this mindset. We created a space we could be proud of, that kids would love being a part of. We want to be a small club so that we ALWAYS put the needs of the kids first. We want them to love netball as much as we do and we want to provide them with every opportunity to rise to be the best netballer they can become. It's that simple!

We love this article that was published recently and hits on all the following

  • Playing sport teaches you how to be part of a team.

  • Playing sport brings more friendships into your life.

  • Playing sport teaches you life skills beyond school.

  • Playing sport is good for your head.

  • Playing sport is good for your health.


And we love the way it ends​

"Keep going because that team, those girls, are giving you more than you can maybe see right now. They're giving you, YOU. A chance to tie up your shoelaces and just be you out on that court. Strong, fierce, fast, CONFIDENT you. Keep playing, my girl. Keep playing."
