Annual Club Grading Day – 1 Feb, 2024


To prepare for the start of the Autumn season, we will be holding our annual Club Grading Day on Thursday 1 February, between 4 and 6pm, to assist the Grading Committee with team selection.


To help us plan for Grading Day PLEASE REGISTER YOUR ATTENDANCE HERE before 5pm on Thursday 25 January.  


9/U and 11/U Age Groups – Preseason Activities & Introduction to Grading:

Players in 9/U and 11/U will not participate in the formal grading process but we will be running a “Pre-Season Activities & Introduction to Grading” session for our younger players to enjoy. This will be a fun session of games to get to know each other and some light training.


13/U, 15/U and 17/U Age Groups – Grading Games:

All 13/U, 15/U and 17/U players will need to attend.  Once registered, you will receive further information about your court allocation and time of your session.


19/U and Open Age Groups – No attendance required:

Based on current registrations, there won’t be multiple teams in these age groups, so 19/U and Open players will not need to attend Grading Day.


Do you have to attend?

Whilst it is not compulsory for players to attend Grading Day, it is recommended. We aim to make the Panther’s Grading Day as enjoyable and stress-free as possible for all players involved. The overall aim is to help the Grading Committee place new and existing players into teams that will optimise their playing experience (see our Grading Policy for more information). The ultimate goal is that all players want to continue playing netball at the Eltham Panthers and have a quality experience.


What if you can’t attend?

Players who choose not to, or aren’t able to, attend will be placed in a team based on their past experience and any previous coaching evaluations.   Please notify the Club by email if you aren’t attending Grading Day via email to


We look forward to welcoming you back for season 2024!
