Under 14 Development Programme

Netball Hutt Valley will be selecting squads and/or teams in the U14 (Development) age group. 

Under 14 Age Group Try Out Information

Netball Hutt Valley aspire to provide opportunities for our players to develop and play at local tournaments.

To be eligible players must: 

  • Be under the age of 14 as at 1st January 2024, and be in year 9 or above at secondary school.
  • Year 7&8 players are not eligible for the under 14 or NHV representatve programmes. Year 7&8 players are eligible to register for the Year 7&8 PDP skills assessment day or attend the school holiday programmes delivered April through to July. Please refer to the year 7&8 offerings under the Developement tab. 

Player Eligiblity 

Please note ALL players must be registered & playing in the NHV or HVSSA competitions in 2024 to be eligible to play for Netball Hutt Valley. Players must also regsiter & play within their eligible age group in the first instance, and will not be eligble to play up an age grade.

Player nominations can be made via the registration form link sent to schools and clubs/ available online. NHV will make contact with nominated players prior to scheduled trial dates with further information. 

Please ensure you select the correct positions on your registration form as it is very hard to make changes on the day and we cannot guarantee you will get a run in your preferred position if you change on the day. If there is an overload in certain positions i.e. midcourt some players may be asked to play in additional positions. We will endeavour to ensure all players have the opportunity to play in their preferred position(s) for a minimum of three games per trial. 


Inability to attend the trial date(s) may impact the trialists selection. We strongly recommend you make yourself available for all trial date(s). In special circumstances a dispensation may be granted provided a valid reason has been given for why a trialist may miss a trial. If seeking dispensation please email admin@netballhuttvalley.co.nz with your valid reason outlined in the message. Dispensations will be granted at the discretion of the CDO and Age Group selection panel.
