Sandringham Youth Club Netball Association (SYCNA) was established in 1987 with three founding clubs, Hampton Hammers, Sandy Starlets and St Finbar’s providing girls the opportunity to play netball in the Bayside area.
In 2013 SYCNA became incorporated and changed its operating name to Sandringham and District Netball Association (SANDY) to reflect its membership base outside of Sandringham. SANDY has grown from its humble beginnings to become a large association with a high participation rate and provides opportunities through a variety of programs and competitions for individuals to play netball from the age of 5 years all the way to Open Age competition. The Thomas Street complex is the only venue in Bayside that has netball courts available to all our user groups to train and play competition.
There are currently 12 affiliated Clubs that make up the SANDY netball community, with more than 2000 members.
