It's time to register for Winter Netball 2023!! ........ REGISTRATIONS FOR 2023 IWNA WINTER COMPETITION ARE NOW OPEN

Submitted by ashbury on 3 January 2023 - 5:42pm

Happy New Year!!

It's time to register for Winter Netball 2023!!

Registrations for the 2023 Winter Competition will open Wednesday 4 January 2023 and will close at 8.00pm Wednesday 15 February 2023.  LATE REGISTRATIONS WILL ONLY BE CONSIDERED IF THERE IS A VACANCY IN AN APPROPRIATE TEAM.

shbury Netball Club has teams in a variety of grades in juniors through to seniors as well as running a Mini Magpies (5-7 years) Program.  All players are welcome and we encourage boys to join our Mini Magpies Program and Junior teams, as boys are able to play up to the age of 12 years in their own age group.  Due to the success of the Mixed Summer Competition, IWNA have opened registrations for Mixed and Men’s teams and the following new divisions:

  • Women's Over 45's
  • Men's Open
  • Mixed Open
  • Mixed Cadets ( for 13-17yr Boys and 14-17yr Girls)

The viability of this competition will be dependent on registrations.  Games will be played on Saturday's from 4:30 - 5:30PM at Cintra Park.  

PLEASE NOTE - you can only register once and players interested in playing in two teams eg Senior Ladies and Mixed need to email ashburynetball@gmail.com with details.  If you have any questions regarding the above new divisions, please contact ashburynetball@gmail.com.

Registrations will be online via the PlayHQ platform.  If you do not already have a PlayHQ account (from 2022), you will be asked to create an account:

  • Username = your email address
  • Password = set password as required
  • Payment of fees is required at time of registration (a requirement of PlayHQ)

When registering it is very important that you choose the correct Competition to register under, based on the age the participant will be as at 31 December 2023. You do not register according to the team/age group you may be playing. ANC allocates players to teams.

Please ensure you select 12 mths registration as this fee will also cover the 2023 Summer Competition component otherwise you will be paying more again if you wish to play in the Summer Competition.

EXAMPLE (Revised)

If a player is turning 9 this year she would need to register in the Woolworths NetSetGo Modified (8&9 years) Program.  However if a 9 year old player is registering for a 10 year old team, she must register in the Junior (10-15 years) Program.

Any 9 year old player who registers in the Junior (10-15 year) group WILL NOT receive a NSG pack and there is NO WAY to facilitate this at all.

If a player is turning 17 this year. If the team played in last year was a Senior team, and she will likely play in the same team, however when registering she will register as a CADET as that is the age group allocated for the player date of birth.

Please follow the appropriate link for your AGE (as at 31 December 2023):

Uniforms

Submitted by ashbury on 1 January 2023 - 9:00am

All players are reminded that they must wear our registered uniform either:

  • Green dress, black sports briefs, Ashbury Socks (optional) or predominately white socks, OR
  • Ashbury shorts and singlet, sports briefs, Ashbury Socks (optional) or 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 a 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,
