What is Grading and Why Grade?
Roseville Netball Club grades players from 10 years and up. This is to ensure all our girls have the best possible experience playing netball!
NetSetGo players (7-9 years) are not graded. These players are placed into teams with a friend.
Grading enables us to place your daughter in a team of similar abilities who will play against other teams of similar abilities thus giving everyone a fair go.
We realise that everyone matures and develops skills at different times – this is why grading is so important.
It is a requirement that all players (10s and above) attend their allocated grading session.
For a more detailed outline of our grading procedures, please read the Roseville Netball Club Grading Guidelines.
There are a number of steps involved to grade each player:
- Coaches’ Evaluation Report – at the end of each season, each coach completes an evaluation report for each player.
- Independent Assessment – during the season, Roseville Netball Club selectors will attend a game and observe and record each individual player’s performance..
- Paper grading – the Coaches Evaluation Report and the Independent Assessment are used to place the players in “Grading Squads” for the practical grading session.
- Practical grading session – during organised grading days, selectors observe each girls play. They then use the information gathered from the Coaches’ Evaluation Report, Independent Assessment, Paper grading and Practical grading session to select teams balanced with players of similar ability.
