Submitted by ashbury on 27 April 2020 - 3:08pm

Netball 2020 Update from IWSNA
We hope that our netball community is keeping well and managing the unprecedented changes that are impacting all of us through this COVID-19 pandemic.
 

Competition
At this stage, and in the event that there are no further restrictions we aim to commence our winter competition from 18 July. Most recent advice from Netball NSW and in line with the current Public Health Order is there can be no training sessions until 30 June.
Paramount to what we do is ensuring the health and safety of all our members. We are in the process of planning scenarios for implementation of our competition from this date taking into account feedback from all our clubs, guidance from Netball NSW and Government advice and restrictions.
 

Registration Fees
Netball NSW has advised that refund of registration fees would be premature at this time and this is consistent with the vast majority of winter sports. Inner West are following Netball NSW’s advice on this matter, whilst considering the interests of our members. Ensuring netball remains financially viable is critical to sustain our sport, not just during this period but into the future. In addition, it has been confirmed by the NSW Government that the $100 Active Kids Voucher money used by a parent to partially offset registration fees cannot, under any circumstances, be returned as cash.
 

Representative Netball
Netball NSW have confirmed the following format for 2020 Representative Netball competitions:
A 9 week Metro League will commence Monday 27th July
Hart State Titles for Juniors, 17s and 19s will be held over the October long weekend (3-5 Oct) with venues to be confirmed.
Open State Titles and Master will be held 17-18 October with venue to be confirmed.  The Representative Carnivals are being reviewed by Netball NSW

Please continue to stay safe during this period. We continue to be optimistic that our netball comp will proceed in July and that it will provide a much-needed release for all of us.

Yours in Netball,
IWSNA Executive Committee

URGENT ANNOUNCEMENT - Immediate Cancellation of Training for ANC

Submitted by ashbury on 17 March 2020 - 12:42pm

Overnight Netball NSW shared a memo with all Associations recommending that all Community netball be suspended until 2 May.  As you are aware IWSNA had already been on the front foot making the decision to delay the start of the season till that date over the weekend.

However further is the recommendation that all training sessions also cease.

The ANC Committee made the decision this morning to cancel all ANC training sessions effective immediately.

The decision has been made in light of guidelines issued for the management of the COVID-19 situation and to consider the health and wellbeing of all our members.

This current environment continues to evolve daily and the Club will provide regular updates through our Facebook page; website; via email and through your coaches.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE START OF THE 2020 WINTER SEASON

Submitted by ashbury on 15 March 2020 - 6:28pm

On Saturday 14 March 2020 the IWSNA Committee met to discuss the Federal Government Crowd Bans which will come into effect from 16 March 2020 in a bid to maintain the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

For this reason, the decision has been made to postpone the start of the Winter Competition to Saturday 2 May (after the Easter break).  We will be updating how the fixture will be implemented to allow Rounds 1 and 2 to be played.  The Winter comp fixture will be available over the next few days.  

For the time being training will continue and I would ask you all to adhere to the following guidelines:.

  • Do not attend training if you have any cold or flu like symptoms;
  • Prior to beginning any training all players and coaches should make sure they clean their hands thoroughly with soap and water, or with an alcohol based hand rub. 
  • Avoid shaking hands, kissing, hugging or high-fiving your teammates for the time being.
  • Clothing ie jumper and sportswear not placed on top of each other.
  • Drink bottles kept upright and separated.
  • Please seek medical advice before attending training if you have returned from an overseas trip or had contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case in the last 14 days about whether you need to self-isolate.

We will continue to keep you updated on any further changes as they come to hand.

Grading has been finalised and once the playing times have been published we will share all this information with the teams.
