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.
