Years 2, 3 and 4 as well as Open divisions will need to supply their own umpires.
Spring Registrations will open on the September 21st and will close on October 2nd.
Once again there will be no registration appointments, clubs will need to complete their player registrations and team nominations online and confirm with the office before they are invoiced.
Players wanting to be involved in the Mixed competition will register with WDNA directly. Registrations open on the 25th September for this competition.
With the Spring competition ready to go this week, it is important to remind your members of the correct procedures in place for the competition as we are still operating under Phase 4 restrictions.
Games will still run under the Get In/Play/Get Out Policy
Gates will open 15 minutes prior to the commencement to the game. Please remember to social distance at the gates. It is recommended that your teams arrange to meet on the cricket oval or other open space and walk over together as a group.
Parents/guardians may walk their children onto the courts but must then leave immediately. Parents must wait outside the gates for their children at the conclusion of their games.
For players playing on Courts 1 – 27; Entry is at Gate 2 and the Exit is Gate 4.
Courts 28 – 57; Enter at Gate 5 and Exit at Gate 6.
Ten minutes after commencement of the games, the gates will be closed and late comers will not be admitted.
Each team is permitted 5 spectators, this INCLUDES your scorer along with your Coach and Manager.
Players may be escorted to the court by their parent/guardian but they are not permitted to stay as a spectator.
We are hoping that these restrictions will be able to be eased after 25th October if the State moves to Phase 5. However in the meantime this is how we will be running the competition so please advise your parents/spectators that ANY abuse of our staff/volunteers/Board members WILL result in a ban from the complex for the remainder of the season – regardless of the restrictions being lifted. Please remind them NOT to contact the office as our staff members will only speak to the Club Contact.
All games will be centrally timed with 10 minute quarters. Teams are still encouraged to have a score checker present in place of a timer.
Scorecards are still to be collected from the canteen window, the scoring team is responsible for collecting and returning the scorecard. In the case of a Bye vs Bye game, the team from the higher division is responsible for the scorecard collection.
Any team intending to forfeit a Spring match must have the club contact notify WDNA office by email no later than 10.00am on the Tuesday prior to the fixtured game. (Penalty #13)
If your club has made any changes to team lists, they must be made via the ‘Team/Squad Setup (season)’ tab on MyNetball as all teams have been allocated.
If your available players do not appear, press the blue Preview button.
All changes must be made prior to sending a MyNetball Admin form into the office.
All registration invoices must be paid in full prior to Wednesday or your teams will not be permitted to take the court.
There will be no canteen available during Spring.
This year continues to be challenging for us all and both the Board and staff have done their best to provide your members with a Spring netball season. We thank all clubs for continuing to be patient and working with us during these unusual times.0
Good Luck to all teams!
