Netball Tasmania already is exploring the possibility of not renewing the state's three-year partnership with Collingwood's Super Netball club at the end of this season.
This could mean the end of the Tasmanian Magpies merged entity 12 months on from winning the Australian Netball League title.
But Netball Tasmania chief executive Aaron Pidgeon said such a momentous decision would be to benefit its elite netball program.
Tasmania would look to affiliate its own side again next year after abandoning the Tassie Spirit in 2016.
The long-term view would be to push for a Super Netball side, possibly from as early as 2022 when Netball Australia's broadcast deal with Nine and Telstra expires.
"We are to some degree in that process at the moment," Pidgeon told The Examiner.
"The current contract itself is between the state government and Collingwood, but obviously Netball Tasmania's position is the correct pathway is critical to that contract, even though we're not a signatory to it.
"So we're looking at all options and in an ideal world, we'd like to think we have enough, if not now enough, local talent of perhaps fielding our own ANL team.
"Beyond that, we're also exploring what our opportunities might be to get into the Super Netball competition in our own right.
"We're not sure yet whether that is completely unviable or if it is - we have never done a full enough study to understand that, but we're now undertaking that process.
"Certainly when I'm in the chair, we're never ever going to take our eyes off having our own team as a goal."
Diamonds national coach Lisa Alexander had called for expansion earlier this year.
Pidgeon said Netball Tasmania reviews its operations annually, but will "make sure we've done our homework" before aligning to a new path.
"We certainly want our own ANL team in place prior to having a crack at Super Netball if it was the right thing to do," he said.
"If we made the jump to Super Netball like in the next five or even 10 years, we'd still need a heavy flavour of athletes from other states but that's not different to the Hurricanes or anyone else.
"Certainly it's something we're intrigued about and Netball Australia will no doubt look at us."
Tasmanian Magpies begin their ANL title defence away to Queensland Fusion.
Launceston will not host any games this year, with the only home rounds played in Hobart on May 18 and 19.
But Collingwood's control of the side has fixtured the Tasmanians to host games at Bendigo in regional Victoria.
"We will keep pursuing options to make sure we're getting the right things in place," Pidgeon said.
"We're certainly not going to be sitting on our hands.
"We think the Collingwood deal has been great, but it needs to continued to be proven that it's the right option moving forward or we'll consider other options."
Pidgeon hoped the state's netball hopefuls will want to aspire to play at the top level.
"The real test is how do we couple the success with making sure that our players are getting enough into them with development," he said.
