The Gap Netball Club, in collaboration with the QLD Suns Men’s & Mixed Netball, has launched its ‘Boys in Netball’ Pilot, a first-of-its-kind mentoring program designed to boost boys’ participation in netball and establish sustainable pathways within the sport.



Fueling their aspirations, the club secured a grant from Woolworths, enabling the launch of this “All Play Inclusion Program” slated for 2024. This initiative introduces a pioneering mentoring program designed to boost boys’ participation in netball and establish sustainable pathways within the sport.

The Boys in Netball initiative operates on the principle of “You can’t be what you can’t see,” striving not only to encourage boys to embrace netball but also to establish connections with elite-level players.

Beyond this groundbreaking program, the club is committed to advancing the skills of coaches, umpires, and players. Substantial investments in additional sessions, activities, and training sessions are earmarked for the coming year.

Boys aged 7-12 registering for the 2024 season will enjoy exclusive benefits, including half-price registration fees, a complimentary uniform (singlet, shorts, and socks), a ticket to a Netball Queensland School Holiday Boys Clinic in 2024, and a Queensland Suns Mentor/Buddy.

The mentorship program also promises a meet-and-greet, monthly Zoom catch-ups, attendance at a QLD Suns team training, and an experience at a Nationals game at Nissan Arena in April 2024.

Hilder Rd State School in The Gap serves as the training ground during the week, with game days unfolding at Downey Park Netball Association in Windsor on Saturdays.

As anticipation builds for the 2024 season, online registrations will open on 8 Jan 2024. Prospective members can explore the club’s offerings at a Club Open Day on Saturday, 20 Jan 2024, from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
