Teams

Netball is a popular winter sport of choice for Daramalan girls with Daramalan teams playing in various divisions across Intermediate, Cadet and Senior age groups in the Canberra Netball Association winter competition in 2015.

Competitions

Daramalan Netball teams play in the Canberra Netball Association winter competition between March and September. In 2015, almost 200 Daramalan girls participated in the Daramalan College Netball Program. Trials are held in Term 1 each year and the Grand Finals take place in September.

Additionally, Daramalan teams (7/8, 9/10 and 11/12) participate in inter-school competitions such as ASC Netball and in the NSW CCC interstate Netball Carnival.
