NETBALL CONNECT - HOW TO REGISTER A PLAYER

Registrations for the 2022 Season are open via NetballConnect. **Please note some clubs have not yet opened up their registrations so please check for email updates from your club before trying to register.


CLICK HERE FOR STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS TO REGISTER PLAYERS IN NETBALLCONNECT



Some trouble-shooting tips:
  • For players 18yrs and younger, the parent/guardian should have an account and THEN register your child! Look out for the question "Are you registering yourself?" and check the appropriate option.

  • Ideally you want to use the link provided to you by your club

  • If you don't have the link, when you get to the "Select Organisation" in the Competition drop down box, please search for your Club NOT Downey Park. The DPNA Winter Competition will then show on the next step.

  • Please also double check that you are selecting the right club based at Downey Park (there are some common club names across Qld!)

  • If you are unable to find your club, please contact your club directly (contact details for all clubs available on our website). Reminder - some clubs have not opened up for registration yet.

  • If you cannot find "2022 DPNA Winter Season", please do not select anything else as other options will register you into other programs and you will be ineligible to play. Please contact your club for instructions if you are unsure.

  • Finally, please be patient. Most of our clubs are run by volunteers who also have full-time jobs, families, study etc. This is a brand new system and everyone is still learning the ins-and-outs of it. There will possibly be a few teething problems but if we all stay calm and patient, we will get it sorted and get back playing our fantastic game!!
