Our Club

81492411 3414367721938016 8127116642829205504 nRaiders Netball Club was founded in 1994 and is based at Western Districts Netball Association (Faulkner Park, Graceville). 

The club was formed to provide a friendly atmosphere in which to play netball and provide participation for both competitive and social players. We pride ourselves on our sportsmanship and on fostering and developing a love of the sport in all of our players.

We field teams from NetSetGo (turning 5 or 6 years) to A Grade (seniors/opens). Our day season runs from February to August/September. Fixtures are played on a Saturday (generally mornings for Juniors and afternoons for Seniors) and training is held on Wednesday nights for all players at Faulkner Park, Graceville. There is no training for the NetSetGo program.

We welcome all new families, players, umpires, coaches, committee members, and volunteers!

Our Sister Team Program

In 2019, Raiders introduced a new initiative: the Sister Team Program. 

The Sister Team Program was established to encourage new relationship building between our junior and senior netball teams, fostering a more cohesive and caring club. 

The Sister Teams are hoped to provide inspirational role models for the younger players and grow a sense of servant-heartedness for the older girls as they give back to their 'little sisters'. 

How does the Sister Team Program work?

On a weekly roster, players from each senior team are required to attend their little sister's training session to assist (no preparation required) the team coach. Additionally, on three occasions during the season, the seniors (as many of the team as possible) are called on to cheer their little sisters during their Saturday game and vice versa, with their little sisters watching their big sisters' game that day too. 

Teams are also encouraged to come together, on at least one of the Saturday games, to spend time between their two games having lunch or morning tea together at the courts. Each coach and team manager are advised of which big sister or little sister team they've been partnered with, and team managers will advise teams of rostering. 

We thank everyone at Raiders for supporting this initiative. 
Together, Raiders will proudly continue to work together to build a strong, supportive club which values all our members, irrespective of gender, ethnicity, ability or religion.

Our Ministry Partnerships

Raiders Netball Club is in the community for the community. We are committed to supporting the community through partnering with worthy organisations to provide practical support and help in promoting their mission.

Our Raiders Braiders event has raised over $2,000 in two years for our drought-stricken farmers, and
The Smith Family's education programs.

We also support
Share The Dignity each year and gifted our superseded Raiders uniforms to the Milperra School. 

In 2019, one of our Raiders' families suffered a tragic accident, so it was wonderful to see the Club come together with a $700 gift.
