2021 TIP Information & Nominations

What is TIP?

The BNA TIP program is a specialized program that is designed to improve the overall playing standards of netball at the BNA and ultimately the standard of our representative teams. The TIP program operates during the Summer Night Season (October – Feb) each year and is aimed at players aged between 12-19 years (in 2022).  Players must nominate and then be selected to participate in the program.  Nomination alone is no guarantee of selection. The main purpose of the TIP program is to give development opportunities to players who will make themselves available for selection into a BNA representative team in 2022.

It is therefore important that parents and players understand the requirements of being part of the TIP program. All players who nominate and are successful in being selected in the TIP program are also required to nominate and trial for a Brisbane Netball Association 2022 representative team and to play in a Rep team if selected.  TIP trials will be held on 15 August 2021 and Rep Trials in February 2022.

TIP Coaching
During the TIP program, players are coached by experienced BNA representative coaches who will focus on mastering essential skills as well as extending and furthering individual development to see players perform at the next level.


TIP Training
Training during the TIP program will be high intensity (including weekly strength and conditioning work) and will prepare players for the next step into representative netball or provide further development for players who have already played representative netball.

The training program includes specialist sessions, guest coaches, pool sessions and professional guests (ie psychologists, nutritionists etc).

The focus of the program is on player development through weekly training sessions which are held each Monday night.

In addition to training, players will be placed into a team that will compete in the BNA Summer Night 2021/22 competition. Players in TIP teams will generally play in a higher age-group or division than they would play in their club teams.  Games will be held on a Tuesday or Wednesday night, depending on the age group/division in which the player is competing.


TIP Training times

12-15yrs:  Each Monday for two hours between 5.15pm - 8.30pm. (Times will vary for each age group)

17 & 19yrs:  Each Monday from 4.30pm - 5.15pm


TIP Fixtures
12-15yrs age group: Each Tuesday or Wednesday night from 5th/6th October 2021 (draws allocated at start of season).  We strongly discourage players from playing in a club AND a TIP team during the Summer Season due to game time clashes and the pressure this places on players.

17 & 19yrs: Players will participate in strength and conditioning training each Monday from 4.30pm-5.15pm.  There will not be a TIP team in this age group and players are encouraged to play in a club team over the Summer Season.

Trials will be held as follows:

12 years (born 2010) – Sunday 15 August 2021 @ 8.00am @ Wavell State High School
