Achieve your netball career goals

The aim of the QIS Netball program is to provide a regional training environment that allows eligible young netballers access to quality development opportunities and support as they progress through Netball Queensland.

The program is aimed primarily at individual skill development with a focus on preparing scholarship athletes for the Queensland state netball team selection trials and further representative opportunities that lay ahead.

In addition to athlete development, the program also focuses on the development and further education of local coaches and umpires under the Netball Queensland guidelines.

Players train twice a week throughout the summer with high quality local netball coaches, athletic coaches and young youth players undertaking sports coaching traineeships.

The QIS will hold selection trials in October each year to identify and select scholarship athletes to make up the team for the following year. Institute selection trials are open to aspiring young netballers who fit within the eligibility criteria for the program.

Players will need to be willing to devote their time and effort to meet the program requirements. Players will also need to fall into the following age brackets:

  • U10 (2013)
  • U11 (2013)
  • U12 (2013)
  • U13 (2013)

A scholarship levy fee does apply to all athletes who are successful in becoming a QIS scholarship athlete. This scholarship fee covers the full cost of participation in the program including, but not limited to, training, education, materials and the QIS apparel kit.

Additional costs may apply for travel and/or accommodation at some stages throughout the program, though athletes and their parents will receive information regarding any additional costs well in advance of any such events or opportunities.

The scholarship fee must be paid in full prior to commencement of the scholarship program, unless a payment plan has been arranged and signed-off by QIS management.
