Who We Are


QDNC is a local community supportive, family friendly netball club, providing a fun and nurturing environment to play netball.

About Us
About Us
Our ambition is to encourage and facilitate more boys, girls and adults to play our amazing sport. We commit to foster strong teamwork, encourage a sense of belonging and to strive for netball to have a positive impact on our players health and wellness (mental and physical).

We also provide stretch and development opportunity for those who want to progress along the Netball Australia pathway with multiple development paths to follow within the club and some highly accoladed teams / players.

QDNC is one of the largest clubs competing at Joondalup Netball Association, where we cater for ages 7 through to Opens. We also have a presence at Wanneroo Districts Netball Association where we register development teams by invite only aged 12 through to 18.

Whether you play for friendships, for the feel good or for your personal development, you are welcome at QDNC....


Recognition


We are a level 3 Good Sports Club and were the winners of Club of the Year in 2019 which is a prestigious award given to only one club across the whole of WA. We attended a ceremony in Canberra to receive the award.

The Good Sports Awards are the ultimate trophy for any Good Sports club, paying tribute to the heart and soul of community sporting clubs – no matter their size or sporting code.

The Awards recognise the inspiring Good Sports clubs and passionate volunteers that are committed to healthier, family-friendly clubs and making their communities the best they can be.

Our History


Founded in 1978 and therefore the oldest club in the Joondalup association (in fact we were the first junior sports club in Quinns), Quinns Districts Netball Club started their journey as a junior primary school competition at the Quinns Rocks Primary school.

As the northern corridor expanded, the netball club changed their name to Quinns Districts Netball Club and welcomed players from many local schools. QDNC played the first 19 years of netball at Wanneroo Districts Netball Association and in 1997 the club began to play at Joondalup Netball Association.



Our Values


We want our values to be representative of how the club “feels” to players, members and our volunteer team.

We want them to help guide us in the running of the club. We also want our players to role model these out on the courts. We recently surveyed members and had affirmation that the below values best represent how we behave and feel as a club.

Teamwork, Belonging, Family orientated, Health & Wellness, Be your best


Diversity and Inclusion


As part of our Belonging value, we promote diversity and inclusion and the club has a number of initiatives supporting this.

Indigenous Inclusion

QDNC launched a competition to design an indigenous shirt in 2020 and you can see, Olivia Farmer did an amazing job. The club had this shirt made up as part of our uniform and available to all for purchase and to wear primarily on Naidoc week, but also at training and on game days.

Gender inclusion

We were the first club at JNA to have a gender neutral uniform option and to reflect our Club’s commitment toward diversity and inclusion. Our current uniforms are no longer gender specific and when playing for QDNC at JNA, you have the choice to wear either of our uniform options, that include a dress/training top or sports shorts and polo top/training top.

We were the first club at JNA to have boys playing in our teams and we look forward to helping promote JNA as they try and launch a mixed netball or boys netball competition for boys/men over 12. Encouraging a more gender diverse member base is one of our 3 strategic aims for 2021. QDNC encourages boys age 7-12 to participate and we have had some very successful boy players who have gone onto play at a high level in WA.

Our coaching team in 2020 was 50% male and this has helped us promote netball as a non-gender-specific sport.

We are looking to appoint a committee member as Indigenous Participation Officer to increase our focus on attracting and retaining indigenous players at the club and continuing to educate all our players on indigenous culture and heritage.
