ALL AGE CARNIVAL
Our annual all-ages carnival will take place on the 10th August. Nominations are now being taken at control for teams aged 10 years and older the cost is $30 a team, and the closing date will be August 4th when we will finalise teams and divisions. Please remember it is umpire your own team.
NET SET GO
Our NetSetGo program has 4 weeks left for this season, with the final session occurring on August 23rd. This great season will finish with a presentation for all of our future netball stars, as well as some sweet treats and a chance to celebrate a year’s worth of learning and socialising.
If you are not busy on Saturday mornings from 11.30 to 12.30pm Net Set Go could use a few more helpers as we have a large number of participants. Your help would be greatly appreciated no matter how big or small, young or old.
For those interested in participating at representative level for Grafton in 2015, keep an eye out for the times for the upcoming trials to be held for the squads12 years through to 17.
Please check court allocations for the remainder of the season, those put down to play on court 7 will now play on court 1. We also may swap other games around so please check on Saturday on the draw placed up on the window.
CONDUCT AROUND THE GROUNDS...
Players are expected to respect their opponent as a matter of sportsmanship. It has been brought to our attention that certain teams are not following our player’s code of conduct. The executive will be following up on these matters and those found in violation will be disciplined accordingly. To learn more about all our codes of conduct please head to our website and read more so you are well informed.
The Grafton Netball Association would like to remind all, that the grounds are a No Smoking Area and a No Alcohol Zone. These are rules and regulations as per the Clarence Valley Council, and penalties and fines can be enforced.
Those who umpire in the earlier time slots and lower grades are still in the learning stage of their umpiring experience, and as is the case with anyone, are prone to making the occasional mistake. Taking control of a game can be very daunting and overwhelming to those who are not yet used to their position on the sideline, so the patience and respect of all coaches, parents and spectators would be greatly appreciated.
Grafton Playing Rules
Remember if your team is short and you require substitute players to fill in, there are a few basic rules that must be followed:
*Only two substitutes can play for the one team in a game
*Substitutes cannot be subbed on for an existing team player unless they are injured.
*Substitutes must be from a lower division and from the same club.
*If the Substitute has played in the same team 3 times, they automatically become a player of that team and can no longer play in their old team.
Please make sure when you are substituting for another team that you sign on in the correct section on the score sheet. A separate section is allocated under the original team section. All players should be aware that if they don’t sign on it will be deemed that they have not taken the court.
