Details regarding Storm trials for the 2023-24 season

Thank you for your interest in Northants Storm Netball Club.

Trials are open to everyone, and we are always keen to welcome new players. As a performance club from juniors onwards, we do require all players (current and new) to trial. We are looking for athletes that are seeking to progress their netball through high quality coaching and exposure to competitive matches. We offer an established pathway all the way through to our National Premier League team.

When are trials?
U14s - Wednesday 24th May 2023, 6-9pm
U16s - Wednesday 14th June 2023, 6-9pm

Where are trials being held?
Wellingborough School, NN8 2BX

How old do I have to be to trial?
U14s - current school years 7&8, i.e. born between 1st September 2009 and 31st August 2011.
U16s - current school years 9&10, i.e. born between 1st September 2007 and 31st August 2009.

How much does it cost to trial?
There is a non-refundable trial fee of £5. A trials “ticket” should be purchased on our website, via the Shop. If you are not already a member of Pitchero, you will need to make an account to do so. Accounts should be made in the name of a parent/guardian.

Make sure to include the name of the player you are purchasing a ticket for when prompted, so that your payment is correctly allocated.

Any problems using Pitchero should be sent to where we will get back to you as soon as we can (please be aware this is a busy time for us so there may be a delay in responding).

How do I register?
Please make payment as specified above and complete the registration form available here:

A separate form is required for each athlete trialling.

Registration closes Friday 19th May.

What happens if I am selected?
Squads will be posted on our website soon after the trial, and confirmation emails will be sent out to all athletes.

If you are successful you will be expected to attend training sessions on Thursday evenings at Wellingborough School, commencing the week after May half term for U14s, and the week after trials for U16s. This will run up to the beginning of July.

These will be used to prepare for the Regional League Qualifying Tournaments, on Sunday 25th June for U14s and Sunday 2nd July for U16s, for which attendance is compulsory. If you are not able to attend the appropriate date, it is vital this is noted on your trial registration form.

Who should I contact if I have a question about the club or trials process?
Any questions can be sent to where we will get back to you as soon as we can (please be aware this is a busy time for us so there may be a delay in us responding).
