Known as the Sapphire Series, the Jets Netball Club competes against seven other top tier teams within Queensland and are a feeder club for the Queensland Firebirds. The Sapphire Series is intertwined with the Ruby Series, the Jets South East Queensland based team, which allows talented players the ability to showcase their skills and secure positions within the Sapphire Series at any time.
In 2019, the Jets Netball Club had a successful year finishing second within the Ruby Series, and third within the Sapphire Series.
The Jets catchment consists of a large region spanning from Stanthorpe, Rome, Kingaroy, Toowoomba and Ipswich and through to the outskirts of Brisbane, with the Western Districts Association based in Graceville. With over 9000 juniors and 15 associations, the Jets hold one of the larger sapphire regions.
The Jets have also had a successful year off the court with the development and implementation of the Rep Ready Program and the Development Academy. These programs span 4 to 5 weeks and give aspiring junior netballers weekly interactions with highly qualified coaches, umpires and support staff. The Jets staff work on both on and off court behaviours, like healthy eating, pre and post training habits, wellness and nutrition to prepare future stars for their netball careers. The Jets have also held nine successful one day clinics within Ipswich, Toowoomba and Western Brisbane.
The Jets Rugby League Club is the first sporting club to have two state based teams playing under the same umbrella. This is amazing achievement and one the Jets are proud off.
