Ashbury Netball Club encourages all participates - coaches, players, umpires, officials, parents and spectators - to enjoy the game of netball.  Our aim is to improve the environment of all participants, from players through to coaches and umpires and our spectators.  The people involved in our sport are volunteers and we ask for your co-operation and understanding as we progress through the season.  We are all required to adhere to the policies set down by Netball NSW.  The below link for their Codes of Behaviour Policy outlines requirements for coaches; players; umpires; parents/guardians; spectators and administrators.  The Club will take firm action against unacceptable behaviour.  Netball is played mostly for enjoyment and poor behaviour takes that away from those involved.  NNSW Code of Behaviour Policy

Wishing all teams a successful competition.
