Our 11 & Under teams play in the AFL Barwon Winter Competition on Tuesday nights either in Geelong or Ocean Grove.

We also can enter additional Under 13, Under 15 and Under 17 teams into this AFL Barwon Winter competition, depending on our numbers from year to year. These teams play in Geelong (at Kardinia Park/Geelong Central netball courts) on Friday nights.

The Netball Club is an integral part of the Barwon Heads Football Netball Club and is encouraged by a large supporter base. The netball club joins with the football community to form an exciting and fun community.

We welcome any new netball players and their families to the club.


Volunteers are an essential component to the successful operation of our club and without them we would be unable to offer the extensive netball program we have.

Volunteering is a fun and rewarding activity – and a great way to become involved with our community. We have a large range of opportunities including occasional or ongoing roles that we invite the community to assist with. Regardless of age, skill, qualification or ability, there is always an opportunity to become involved – and we are fortunate to have both playing and non-playing volunteers supporting the club.

Volunteering will require compliance with our club’s and the Football / Netball Leagues Child Safety Policies and Codes of Conduct. Certain volunteer activities may additionally require First Aid certification or a Working with Children Clearance (WWCC) and/or other child safeguarding assessments to occur prior to commencement. Our Netball Committee will provide guidance and support for all volunteers across all roles / activities.

If you would like to help out at the Barwon Heads Netball Club, please contact us.


One of the most important elements of the game is the umpiring and we would like to acknowledge our ever-present, conscientious and reliable umpires.

We offer a range of umpiring opportunities for players and non-players interested in umpiring.  Experienced and/or accrediated (‘badged’) umpires are paid for their time and efforts, and we offer comprehensive assistance to those willing to learn how to umpire.

We encourage all our junior and senior players to undertake umpiring as it assists with player development and supports continuation of the sport.

If you are interested in becoming an umpire, please contact the club.


New committee members are always welcomed. If you are interested in becoming involved, please contact us.

Being a committee member can be fun and very rewarding – and we are always interested in new ideas and initiatives.

Net Set Go

The club also offers a Net Set Go program which is a Netball Victoria initiative. The program is a sequential and well organised program designed to introduce the skills and knowledge that will lead young netballers into the game.

Net Set Go is an inclusive program for all children with an interest in trying out the fun sport of netball. Net Set Go is suitable for children aged 5 – 10 years (or grades Prep – 3).

Net Set Go is usually held on a Friday afternoon alongside our Auskick program, with commencement dates and times varied each year.
