Since 1995 the Western Jets Netball Club has evolved, having become affiliated with Netball SA’s AMND competition in 2001 and playing at Netball SA stadium.
Starting with just 5 teams, with an amazing amount of effort our club is now proud to field over 30 teams at Netball SA Stadium to make us one of the largest netball clubs in the premier South Australian winter and summer netball competition.
As a relatively new club to SA netball, we have a great energy and enthusiasm for our Jets community and the benefits that sport has on young people. We understand that there is more to a club the size of ours than just sticking bibs on seven girls week after week and throwing them onto a court. We understand and take seriously that our club is a community of nearly 1000 people and netball, and sport in general, is a great way to form the foundation for young people to learn skills that will stay with them for a lifetime.
From our fantastic Junior Jets program for 5-7 year olds, we cater for netball for all ages and all standards.
Our fees continue to be one of the lowest of any major club and we deeply thank the contribution of our sponsors to allow us to keep this happening. We believe at the Jets that a person’s financial situation should not stop them from being involved in sport and we continue to work hard to keep the fees low and have implemented a payment plan in 2012 to help ease the financial burden.
We want to provide a community for people to be involved in whatever capacity suits them, whenever they want – playing, umpiring, coaching, administration etc. We will also do our absolute best to place any player that wants to play netball into a team. The most important thing for us is to see all players running around, having fun, getting fit and learning life-skills in a netball environment.
In August 2010, Western JETS was named as the only new club to be given Premier League status within Netball SA’s re-shaping of the highest pre-elite competition, a spot in the Premier Reserve Competition, and by August 2011, had finished 5th in our inaugural year.
In 2012 we began our TID and have developed it in 2013 to have our pathway sides (top 2 teams in each age group) attend with 71 players - 3 from the Lower North Academy Region, 10 coaches and 6 umpires.
We have also started our "Shooting Stars' development with 56 players attending the "3 cheers program" run by Netball SA with sessions including Nat Von Bertouch, Erin Bell and Carla Borrego.
Netsetgo! clinics are now being run by Western Jets Netball Club and our next 8 week session is in Term 3.
2014 sees Western Jets Netball Club apply for Premier Grade as a step towards being a full player pathway club to the Thunderbirds.
We are proud of what the Jets have achieved in our short history and are excited about the upcoming winter season and beyond.
