SUMMER LEAGUE

Winter comp will be coming to an end soon - 28 August 2022 -  and we are now looking forward to competing in the Netball Waitakere Summer Comp from Oct to Dec 2022 and Jan to end of Feb 2023.

We have always had a mixed team and Senior Women, OC and Intermediate teams, and have had in the past Year 5 and 6s, but there have been less interests in the Year 5 to Year 8 grades.  Fun factor, boys can play in these age grades.

We are looking to our whanau and the community to find interests in expanding our mixed teams to play in seniors, open college and year 5 to year 8. If you are interested. Send an email to praedeus.register@gmail.com


NETBALL FOR 2022

Kia ora e te whanau o Praedeus.

The winter competition began for our OC team MEGA on 26 March and  our second OC team EXCEL on 30 April. Prems commenced their season on 20 April. Team ELITE our intermediates begin their journey for the year on 7 May and are keen to start playing. We are eagerly waiting for 9 May when our Year 6 team Choice begin grading, with our youngest age group - team Innovators to begin their haerenga in June........such a long wait.............ka hiamo ki a matou.

PUNI REO POITARAWHITI

Praedeus Netball Sports has the priviledge of being involved in this kaupapa - a te reo tournament held at Netball Waitakere using the medium of Netball to korereo Maori, all day on the court off the court, in the administration of netball. 

The kaupapa is the concept of Te Puni Kokiri bought to light by one of our whanau Matua Eruera Morgan and has been a partnership with Netball Waitakere since it first began in 2018. Due to COVID-19 there was no tournament in 2020.  PNS has been involved and has supported this Kaupapa from conception to realisation in 2018. 

Ko matou ano -  whanau o Praedeus will be participating and supporting the Kaupapa of Puni Reo Tarawhiti in 2022.
