Titans launch inaugural netball schools competition

The Gold Coast Titans netball program continues to expand, with the announcement that the club will launch a schools competition in 2024.

More than 600 students will take part in the first installment of the competition, to be played at the Gold Coast Sports and Leisure Centre at Carrara on Monday 29th April.

The competition will be spread between Carrara and the Coomera Indoor Sports Centre, with twelve single-day carnivals run across the school year.

Titans Netball Head Coach Temepara Bailey says the competition is about giving young athletes the chance to further develop their game.

"We have four competitions a term, so twelve throughout the year and we've got about 45 schools registered (so far)," she said. 

"The purpose of our club is to make our communities proud and to have opportunities for these young athletes to aspire to make the top grade.

"It's also great for us as Titans to see all of the talent in one place.

"We've got five boys teams in the first round of competition ... so that's also very exciting."

The competition is split in four divisions - year 7/8, year 9/10, open boys and open girls.

After receiving feedback from local schools that they were craving more chances to play competitive games, the Titans have initiated new league concept.

Titans CEO Steve Mitchell says this competition is another chance to connect with the wider Gold Coast community.

"The education system here on the Gold Coast, in the lower Brisbane catchment area and the Northern Rivers area is a critical part of our community build," he said.

"To be able to launch a netball competition like this that will have almost 600 participants when it launches is something I'm very excited about.

"The Titans Schools League rugby league version now has about 2600 participants in it and Temepara has jumped out of the gate with 600 which is a really strong start."

Schools from as far north as Rockhampton have registered to play, while schools from Logan, Ipswich and Brisbane will join schools from Tweed and Northern Rivers in the competition.

Greater Gold Coast schools including Helensvale State High, Nerang State High, Palm Beach Currumbin State High, Somerset College, Windaroo Valley State High, Marsden State High, Mabel Park State High, Kings College, Emmanual College, Robina State High, Hillcrest Christian College, Calvary Christian College, St Andrew's Lutheran College, Trinity College and St Joseph's College Coomera will all feature in the first installment of the competition, with a host of other local schools to join throughout the year.
