For all students who sustain an injury that prevents them from training or playing we would appreciate written advice from your Doctor/Physiotherapist for the best course of action.  Students are expected to still attend training and games to support their team if they are physically able.


For safety reasons students cannot trial, attend training or play games on Saturday’s unless they are in the correct uniform.  Therefore casual shoes, socks, school shoes, bare feet are not permitted.  Hair must be tied back and no jewellery is to be worn.  Navy polyprops can be worn under the netball dress, bike shorts are not expected to show below the uniform.  All players are provided with the OGHS Netball dress.  Uniforms are issued from the Sports Department. 

Umpiring Duties

All teams may find that they will have umpiring duties either before or after their Saturday games.  OGHS will endeavor to hold umpiring sessions for all teams. Your coaches will make up a roster for umpiring duties, if you are unable to make your scheduled umpiring duty then it is your responsibility to contact your team members to swap duty.  Failure to turn up to duty incurrs the following penalties from the Dunedin Netball Centre:

Additional Information from the Dunedin Netball Centre:

Player Development Opportunities in 2024:
This year, Year 9 and 10 players will be involved in development days and tournaments rather than U14 representatives. Dunedin Netball believe it is valuable to give more opportunities for players to experience tournaments as well as still encourage the competitive traits of players and encourage growth and development of all players in this age group. The rationale in this, alongside NNZ’s review, is to keep more players in our great sport for longer.


Y9/10: Dunedin Netball is running two development days for our Year 9 and 10 players. These days will be Sunday May 26 and Sunday June 16. These will be open for all players in these year groups with the programme delivering in areas of skill development, components of sports science, NetballSmart and game play.

Sunday May 26: 9am – 1pm. Edgar Centre
Sunday June 16: 9am – 3pm. Edgar Centre
Cost - $70 Per person
Entries for this programme will close on the 19th of May.
