We are nearing the end of Round 2 and the School Holidays are not far away. A reminder that there is no netball on Sat 16 July, but there is July 9 and 23, so please give your Coach plenty of notice if you will be away on those dates.
We have an exciting new coaching clinic programme this year for U11 to U17 which is being run by our Premier A team as part of their fundraising. This will take place on Sunday July 24, 10:30am to 12:30pm, at Catholic Cathedral school gym on Ferry Rd. A $5 fee will apply, plus there will be a sausage sizzle at the end, $2 per sausage. Any other donations to club funds are welcome.. Coaches have been given the relevant information to pass on to their players, however contact Tracey Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org to register a place if the information has not got to you, or check out our Facebook page
Remember when you're down at Hagley on a Saturday to follow the Positive Sideline Supporters Code:
#1 Cheer smart - Learn about the game, so you can encourage friends and family to take part.
#2 Cheer with honour - Respect the rules and traditions of the game, and all participants.
#3 Cheer proud - Set an example of fair play for alls; Give the cold shoulder to abuse & bad sports.
#4 Cheer fair - Be dignified and gracious whatever the result, whatever the ruling.
#5 Cheer loud - Give it heaps in a way that lets everyone know we love the game.
If you have serious ongoing issues (players, umpiring or sideline) while a game is in progress and you want something done about it - go to the OFFICE, and ask for someone to come and observe. ChCh Netball will not action any complaints made after the game if no attempt has been made to get an Official. It is surprising how the presence of an official will calm things down.
If players, family and coaches are having an issue within their team, please contact Elaine Higgs 021 410 824 or Raewyn Pope 027 321 0364 to discuss the matter in the first instance, and in confidence if necessary. Generally, Elaine is often at the courts all day on Saturdays, and can be found in the Office - so you are welcome to call by and have a quiet chat.
Round 3 is the Championship round, starting July 23, whereby all teams will be sorted into Divisions within their grades. All sections within a division will be considered of equal merit. Division 1 teams will be stronger than division 2, who in turn will be stronger than division 3 etc. There are more stringent rules around which players can substitute in other teams for this round. Any player asked to play for another team, must consult their own coach first to ensure they don't break the rules and cost valuable competition points. Coaches will be advised before July 23 about which teams they can use to resource substitutes. Keep an eye out on the ChCh Netball website for the draw to be published in the school holidays.
We still have Entertainment Books available to purchase, hard copy books and digital versions available. These will be delivered to you in person at Hagley courts on a Saturday. Order online.
There is a wealth of information to be found on our website and Facebook page, also that of Christchurch Netball, so please check them out and make yourself familiar with them. Make use of Facebook to tell us a brief run down on how your team's game went each week - keep it brief and positive.
