Senior Netball

Caulfield Bears Senior Women’s Netball League

We started a netball program in 2015 and had 14 players represent our club in our inaugural season. Our players enjoyed our club’s program so much that they invited their friends to join the club, and in 2016 our player numbers swelled to 44. We had further growth last season (2017) when we had 73 netballers take to the court in our club’s colours and, early indications are our player numbers will increase again for season 2018.

The growth in player numbers of 400% in 3 short seasons is a clear indicator to the quality of our club’s netball program and the people who manage it.

Our netball program is managed by a sub-committee which oversees all aspects of the program – this sub-committee consists of experienced netball players & coaches who understand how to create a program that is aligned to the needs of the playing group.

Our netballers enjoyed immediate success when our solitary team in 2015 won the Division 3 premiership. Further success followed last season (2017) when our Division 5 team won their premiership.

In 2017, our Division 1 team played in the Preliminary Final and our Division 2 team were Grand Finalists.

In 2018 our Division 1 team played in the Grand Final, and our Division 4 Masters team played in the Preliminary Final. Our Netball Co-Ordinator is Barb Traeger.  If  you have any queries about the Netball programme  please contact her on 0439 754 318. Our Coaching Team for 2019  will be headed by Sophie O’Shea and Makayla Bulte.  Further coaching appointments are being finalised, so watch this space.
