Each year, Netball Scotland welcome District squads from all over the country to compete in our Under 15 and Under 17 programmes.
Open to all registered Districts with Netball Scotland our U15 and U17 age groups are split into U17 Performance League, U17 Regional League, U15 District and Inter District Programmes. The programme calendar for District is coordinated in conjunction with the Districts themselves. The start of the U17 season is marked with a Play Off day in September which will allow the U17 Performance and Regional teams to be selected.
The U15 District programme is split into North and South regions culminating in an U15 District finals weekend.
The end to the District season is marked with an Inter District competition, a one day event open to a maximum of 10 Under 15 and 10 Under 17 teams, with entry being first come first served and open to ‘A’ teams only.
As detailed below, our Under 15 and Under 17 District programmes consist of several structures, the Under 15 District, Under 17 Regional and Under 17 Performance Events. Please click on the relevant link below to access the results from each event programme.
Each year, Netball Scotland welcomes District squads from all over the country to compete in our Under 15 and Under 17 programmes.
The purpose of District netball is to offer an annual programme of events to enhance the training programme provided by local Districts. This in turn should enhance school, club and development centre programmes. The ultimate hope is that developing players and coaches will be given the chance to create a training environment that mirrors the national squad set up. Trials should be an open process, ensuring an open invitation to trial is available to all schools and clubs within the District; thereby, giving our young potential players the opportunity to train alongside and be coached by qualified coach’s outwith their school/club set up. Districts squads should NOT be represented by a school or club team.
The Under 15 structure is split over three North and South events within which Districts from the North and South regions of Scotland play one another to win a spot in the Under 15 District Final. Teams that do not make the Under 15 District Final event, get the chance to battle it out in the Under 15 Development District Final.
The Under 17 competition kicks off with the Play Off event each season, from which teams are split into the Under 17 Performance League and Under 17 Regional League.
Each season concludes with the prestigious Inter District event. Open to 10 x Under 15 and 10 x Under 17 teams, this is a one day event separate to the rest of the season.
Entries will remain open until 29th June 2017. After this deadline no squad entries will be accepted to the programme.
Developments in the District Programme have been put in place by the Competitions Advisory Group for the 2017/18 season, all improvements can be viewed here.
