Welcome

Welcome to the Sassafras Ferny Creek Netball Club.

The Sassafras Ferny Creek Netball club has been an important part of the Dandenong Ranges community for decades. The club plays in both the Winter (February – August) and Spring (September – December) competitions with the Mountain District Netball Association.

Our philosophy is to provide an environment where players can learn and develop their skills, and receive coaching from appropriately trained coaches. We want our players to have fun and form long-lasting friendships with their peers, sharing similar goals. We want to provide a player pathway enabling players to achieve their potential.

For enquiries, please contact us on playnetball@sfcnc.org.au

Sassafras Ferny Creek Netball Club would like to acknowledge the Wurundjeri people who are the traditional custodians of the land on which we train and play. We pay our respects to the Elders past, present and future, and extend that respect to all Indigenous Australians. We also wish to recognise the contribution that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people make to our sport, and highlight the power of netball to promote reconciliation, enhance belonging and reduce inequality.

Keeping our children safe

Children from all backgrounds and abilities involved in netball have the right to feel safe. If any of our young players don’t feel safe, we encourage them to find an adult they can trust and talk to them.

Our club’s child safety officer is Sarah Davey – who can be contacted on 0474861167. You can also contact Kids Help Line at any time, day or night to get advice. Phone 1800 55 1800.

Information for parents/carers

Our club, along with Netball Victoria, is committed to promoting and protecting the rights of children and preventing abuse by fostering a culture where children feel safe and empowered. The Netball Child Safeguarding Framework sets out the responsibilities that all associations, leagues, clubs and participants within netball (including parents) have to keep our children safe.
