2024 11 & Under

What is involved in the 2024 Program for 11 & Under?

Essendon Thunder is extra netball to your club netball. All Essendon Thunder 11 & Under players must participate with an Essendon District Netball Association (EDNA) club in 2024 on Saturday afternoons at Riverside to be eligible for Essendon Thunder.



There are two seasons in 2024 – Autumn (January to June) and Spring (July to December). Players are chosen for the entire 2024 year (both seasons). We start at the end of January as school is commencing, and usually finish in the first week of December. There are no matches or trainings during school holidays or long weekends.



Training is for 1 hour on Sunday afternoons at Riverside Netball Courts. In 2023, training did not start earlier than 3pm, which allowed players to continue other sporting commitments, (i.e. football, gymnastics) they had on Sunday’s. Our entire club trains on Sunday afternoons (11’s through to Open age) at Riverside.



11 & Under teams play weekly on Saturday mornings at the State Netball Centre (Parkville Netball). Matches are played early (from approx. 9:30am), which enables all players to get to Riverside for their Saturday afternoon EDNA matches.



We take 11 & Under teams to a minimum of two Sunday tournaments during the Autumn season, and one tournament in the Spring season.
