NJNC INTERS & SENIORS
Newton Jaguars takes pride in their Senior aged teams.
Whilst the Intermediate age group is 17 & U, it is at this age, development into our Senior and Premier League starts occurring.
Intermediate-aged players are provided with extra development and fitness opportunities over the summer season. This is continued into winter and may include higher-level opportunities to train with the Premier League squad as a selected Rookie player. Excitingly three of our inter-players made their Premier League Reserves debut in 2021.
First-year Intermediate players are able to pursue further netball development through Netball SA Academy programs and all Intermediate players are encouraged to trial for the NSA 17&U State Team.
In winter, Inters play on Saturday afternoons (around 12:30 pm) and train on Thursday nights. The Intermediate 1 team has an extra session during the week. In summer, Inters play on Monday nights (at 6:25 pm) and train on Wednesdays.
Seniors are for players turning 18 or older in the calendar year.
We play in the AMND league as well as other senior grades. The AMND league is the Senior stepping stone to Premier League. AMND league team selection occurs at the same time (October) as the Premier League squad and enjoys the benefits of the pre-season with the Premier League squad.
We have other team opportunities for Senior aged players, in winter, our Senior teams, play on Saturday afternoons at Netball SA and train on Thursday nights. Note - our A team (B1 grade in 2021) may have extra pre-season training sessions. In summer, Seniors play on Monday nights and continue to train on Thursday nights. Trials for AMND senior teams occur in February.
