HSS Competition

Sapphire Series

In 2019, the HART Sapphire Series replaced the Queensland State Netball League, elevating Queensland’s incredible netball talent to become the stars of tomorrow.
The league was named after the official gemstone of Queensland and, as the sapphire is also the second hardest gem behind the diamond, is an apt metaphor for the quality and toughness of the competition.
The vision of the HART Sapphire Series is to be a semi-professional league that champions local heroes by raising the next wave of netballing talent to a bigger and brighter stage, inspiring future generations of players, coaches and umpires to step up to the national level.

Ruby Series

The Ruby Series underpins the Sapphire Series and provides a direct pathway for developing Queensland’s emerging talent.

The Ruby Series provides an opportunity for players from right across Queensland to prepare for a place in the HART Sapphire Series as well as providing exciting young talent with the opportunity to learn from and be exposed to more experienced players and coaches.

Participation in the Ruby Series will form a crucial step in the development framework for players to move from the Queensland Premier League up into the Ruby Series and then be a candidate for HART Sapphire Series contract. Ultimately, this will enhance the number of Queensland players who are ready to step into the Suncorp Super Netball competition.
