If the answer is YES to any of the above, come and join the Netball whānau!

Many volunteers coach, manage or umpire for a Club or School Team. There are also lots of volunteers that develop the skills of our coaches and umpires. Other volunteers are involved in running Netball by working in administrative or governance roles. Volunteers can also be part of specific project or helping out with one-off events or tournaments.

Get in touch with your local Netball Centre, Netball Club or School to find out how you can make a difference in your community.
