HLNC 21/22 Season Team Trials
We are a friendly, local netball club whom are welcoming any current, returning and new netballers’ to trial for a Hinckley Ladies Netball Team this year. If you are interested in participating in the Coventry & North Warwickshire Netball League (on Saturday’s for seniors, and Sunday’s for juniors) by playing in one of Hinckley Ladies’ teams this season, please fill out the below form.
If you just wish to train with us, you do not need to trial. Our Wednesday training sessions are open to everyone. Find out more information on training here.
Our senior teams are mainly recommended for those 16 or over, however you need to be aged 13 or over (as of September 1st 2020) to trial for seniors. If you are younger than this, then we have junior teams for those aged 11 to 17.
New COVID regulations
Before attending trials or training, please read through our new COVID safety procedures that the club will have in place. You can find all COVID information on our COVID guidelines webpage, or you can message our COVID officer Emma Draycott for more information.
Senior Match Dates
The exact Saturday match dates for this coming senior season will be confirmed closer to the time, but each team will have (approximately) 18 matches across October to April. Games will commence at either 10:00; 12:45; or 15:00, with the time confirmed by the Tuesday before each game. We ask that players can commit to the majority of these dates (and training sessions) if they are registering for a team. If you can only attend approximately 50% of matches and training sessions, then please register as a ‘super sub’ instead so we can allocate team numbers accordingly. We also have a league end of season tournament in May.
Junior Match Information:
Fixtures for junior teams are played on Sunday mornings at either 9:30am, 10:30am or 11:30am. Matches typically run from October to April. We will update you on the match dates as soon as we have these confirmed, as well as the location for the matches this season. As a club, we do not have the facilities to provide transport to players – players will need to arrange their own means of travel to get to fixtures.
Trials are held on Wednesday evenings or Saturday mornings (seniors)/ Wednesday evening or Sunday mornings (juniors).
E & F Team trial date is the following:
- Wednesday 11th August (7:30-9pm)
Please arrive at least 15 minutes before to register and warm up, the courts will be open from 30 minutes before.
All trials will take place at our outdoor courts, which are based at the Hinckley Rugby Club ground. The postcode for this is LE10 3DR. This is also our home ground for all matches and training sessions.
We recommend you coming to as many trial dates as you can make, but ideally we need to see everyone who is trialling attend at least one of the sessions. If you cannot make any of the dates (e.g. due to holiday or work commitments, or if you do not feel safe returning to netball yet but would like to be in a team), please still submit the trial form and we will contact you for further information.
We currently have six senior teams (A, B, C, D, E and F) in the Coventry & North Warwickshire League (divisions 2, 4, 6, 7 and 8), and 3 junior teams (a mix of U14’s and U16’s players), so can cater for a mix of abilities.
When trialling, we ask people to select at least two positions to allow our teams to have flexibility throughout the season. You will be trialled in all positions you select, and potentially another if our selectors believe you also have talent elsewhere on court. Players will be selected into a team only, opposed to a specific position in that team. During the season, it will then be decided between your team, with your captain or coach having the final decision, on what positions people play for matches. This will obviously take into account what position you play and selected to trial at, but it will also help teams to switch around and work out the best positioning that works for all players.
If you have any questions, please contact the below. We hope to see you at trials!
