This coming Saturday will be our last day of competition before we disband for a month for the Easter break and school holidays. Netball will return in full swing May 2, which will mark the commencement of our NetSetGo! program for 2015.

As of last weekend, our “no pay, no play” rule has been imposed upon those who have yet to pay their fees in full for the season. Club delegates will be making the rounds this Saturday to accept any outstanding fees and ensure that any issues regarding payment are soon resolved. We thank you for your patience and cooperation

REP NEWS

Our development squad and 12-15 representative teams will play in their first carnival for the year this Sunday at our own courts. We wish our girls the best of luck as they make their debut for the season. Coaches are looking forward to trailing their combinations and seeing their weeks of hard training put into action, hoping to refine their respective team’s skills in preparation for both State Age and other upcoming carnivals. Parents of the 14yrs and 15yrs teams will need to arrive at 7:30am to start the BBQ we will be running for the day.11yrs, 12yrs and 13yrs parents are required to assist the canteen for the day as well, so please see your managers in order for them to allocate this duty between team accordingly. Games for our carnival will commence at 8:30am.

The next representative carnival will be hosted by Casino on Sunday 19.

Our State League team heads to Lismore next month for the second day of the annual competition on April 26. Visit pour Facebook page or website in order to keep track of our team’s progress in the future.

UMPIRING CHANGES 2015

GNA, from next week onwards, will be putting team names down for umpiring slots on our competition draw. We will do our best to ensure that each team’s umpiring commitment will either be before or after their designated playing time for convenience.It is the whole team’s responsibility to fulfill their commitment. Teams will now be fined if they fail to provide an umpire for their allotted time slot, starting at $10 and increasing thereafter. Teams are able to outsource their umpires for the season if they wish, but our executive is no longer responsible for finding umpires. Umpires will still be paid as per usual.Despite these changes, our association is always more than willing to help and support our teams and players. If you find yourself in need of assistance, always feel free to contact your club delegate or visit us in control on Saturdays, and we will do our best to assist you. We appreciate your effort and cooperation, and look forward to a continued fun and successful season.

CODE OF CONDUCT

Our association would like to remind all players and spectators that those who umpire games for our Saturday competition deserve the utmost respect. We strongly encourage both patience and sportsmanship within our sporting community, both on and off the court among opposition and teammates alike. For more information on our Code of Conduct, please visit our website.

SCORE SHEETS

Regarding our Saturday competition, we would like to remind players that when signing the score sheet, they must either print their name or provide a legible signature in the appropriate area in order for both their presence and the game itself to be verified. Additionally, when players are substituted from other teams, it is a requirement that these players sign the score sheet in the area designated for substitutes. It is important that these rules be adhered to in the future.

TRAINING TEAMS

A reminder to all teams who train at Westward Park through the week to please make sure they remove all the rubbish before leaving their training session.

 As a reminder to competition teams who use our courts for training sessions, please note that courts 1 to 5 are booked for use by our representative teams on Thursday afternoons from 4:30-6:30pm. Please take this factor into consideration when you are planning future training sessions.
