COVID RESTRICTIONS

A number of the restrictions that were in place in 2020 have now been removed.  All games are now back to their usual times and there are no limitations on the number of people who can attend the courts on Saturdays as we come under the current Government and Health guidelines.  We do need to still adhere to the following:

  • ALL attendees MUST register their attendance by way of the QR Code located on the back of the score sheet; on Post pads and other entry and exit areas.  This does not apply to players as this is recorded on the scoresheet.
  • Social distancing should be maintained at all times.
  • If anyone is unwell or experiencing COVID like symptoms they are NOT to come to netball and should get tested.

SCORE SHEETS AND SCORING

  • One team to nominate a scorer for the whole game (no swapping) who will be responsible for scoring AND ticking player participation in the appropriate space on the score sheet.   If a player is absent the tick box should be left blank. It is generally accepted that the first name team should score but this is not a rule.
  • Scorer to record all details of any players playing up e.g. Full name printed legibly PLUS the team they are playing up from.
  • There will be no photo cards used this year.    
  • Score sheets will be placed in the centre circle before each game and picked up from the centre circle at the end of each game as per last year (volunteers to help with this welcome)

Any questions regarding scoring please email ashburynetball@gmail.com or seek out a member of the ANC Committee on the day.

UNIFORMS

  • Please also remember, strict guidelines for uniforms apply - green and white dress, mainly white socks and appropriate footwear, black sports briefs (NO BIKE PANTS).
  • Any enquiries regarding uniforms, please contact our Uniform Coordinator, Merrill Sells (ashburyuniforms@gmail.com)
  • NO JEWELLERY (this includes ear-rings, nose-rings, rings, bracelets etc.  ALL MUST BE REMOVED.
  • If anyone has had their ears pierced recently, they cannot be TAPED, ear-rings must be removed. Please leave all jewellery at home so it doesn't get lost.
  • If players have long hair, it must be tied back and out of their eyes.

WET WEATHER

In the case of wet weather during the season, a decision is usually made on the morning of the game, although in some instances the grass courts may be closed the night before by Council.  Team Coaches will be advised about wet weather decisions and messages will be posted on our website and Facebook page.

On Saturday 28th November at the IWSNA AGM it was with great pleasure that the President, Leanne Blackmore was able to award The Shirley Prideaux Award to Catherine Nealon and Anne Tait from Ashbury Netball Club.

"Aunty Shirl" was the epitome of a volunteer and this award is the highest accolade a volunteer can receive from IWSNA.

Both Catherine and Anne have for many years now given over and above to both the Ashbury Netball Club and Inner West Netball and this award couldn't be more appropriate for them.

Congratulations and thank you Catherine and Anne for all the time you spend at Cintra and behind the scenes supporting our members and Netball. Its very much appreciated.

IWSNA COURT PLAN

Submitted by ashbury on 5 December 2019 - 7:18pm

Please click here for the current court plan.  Teams are asked to check the fixture at the Admin Building each week for court changes.

Uniforms

Submitted by ashbury on 5 December 2019 - 9:48am

All players are reminded that they must wear our registered uniform - green and white dress, black sports pants and predominately white socks.  If you have long hair, it must be tied back off your face.  Nails must be cut short and filed, no jewellery (rings, ear-rings, nose-rings or any piercings, bracelets) to be worn and should be left at home so that it doesn't get lost.   See below for further information on jewellery.

INTERNATIONAL RULES OF NETBALL - JEWELLERY

5.1.1  Players may not wear anything that could endanger themselves or other players, specifically:

(a) No adornment or jewellery may be worn other than a wedding ring which must be covered with tape

(b) A medical alert bracelet may be worn provided it is covered with tape

We are seeing more instances of players with ear-rings and nose-rings taped, which is a breach of the rules.  Players are saying they are unable to remove certain types of ear-rings or have just had their ears pierced.

All umpires are reminded that they need to check all players prior to the start of the game to ensure that players are not wearing any jewellery.

ALL  players and coaches need to be aware of this rule and that the only exceptions are the wedding ring and medi-alert bracelet.

Any player caught playing with jewellery will be asked to leave the court until such time as the item is removed.

Congratulations Catherine Nealon
